  1. HI, Well thats surprising. The info was supplied to me by my hosting company so it's thrown me. I've been meticulous with hacking and have experienced it once. The question i have is where do i start to look for any hacking. This has been a constant issue, the slow uploads and page refreshes while using 1.0 and now 1.1. Mind you i have not been advised by any customer in the past 4 years of any issues with payments or purchases. I'll look at the back-end tomorrow and see if there were any changes. Any suggestions where to start. Regards, Ren
  2. Hi Dominic, Been using the AUS POST 1.1 for some time and working very well. In the last few months though I have been trimming all aspects of the site RAB HOBBIES to speed the page load times to under 1 second and failing miserably. Thinned the images and killed other non-useful add-ons in the hope of faster page load times. Customers have kept me informed as to the load times as a reference. The issue has been plaguing the site still. In the end, the script for 1.1 had been calling am IP address constantly, slowing the site page load times. Below is the reply from my Hosting company after they did a test. " Hello Rens, We appreciate you again for answering the call back earlier. Please refer on the details below provided by our Administrators. In regards to slowness experienced, we have done a trace and it appears to be due to the website calling this address auspost.com.au repeatedly, the website loads much faster without this. sample logs. setsockopt(8, SOL_TCP, TCP_NODELAY, [1], 4) = 0 connect(8, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(443), sin_addr=inet_addr("")}, 16) = -1 EINPROGRESS (Operation now in progress) getsockopt(8, SOL_SOCKET, SO_ERROR, [0], [4]) = 0 getpeername(8, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(443), sin_addr=inet_addr("")}, [16]) = 0 [30-Apr-2019 10:26:16 Australia/Melbourne] PHP Warning: simplexml_load_string(): { in /home/rabhobbi/public_html/online/includes/modules/shipping/apdomexp.php on line 278 [30-Apr-2019 10:26:16 Australia/Melbourne] PHP Warning: simplexml_load_string(): ^ in /home/rabhobbi/public_html/online/includes/modules/shipping/apdomexp.php on line 278 " As a result, i have removed the AUST POST 1.1 modules used and configured a flat rate option for now. Since this has been done the load times are less than 0.5 sec on any page. Your thoughts and feedback is greatly appreciated as id prefer the AUST POST modules as these provide a better and confidence booster to customers buying from us. Hope to hear from you soon. Regards, Ren R.A.B. Hobbies.

    CSV Product Upload

    Looking for a 2.3.4 version of easy populate . Can any one suggest an addon. Cheers Ren.
  4. Thanks for the info. No good. Still stating that the "Login Error. * Username not found. Please try again." is still coming up. Cheers Ren.
  5. Hi Guys, Spend the last day working on issues in getting the OLLA CART working . Big issue is the inability for the LOGIN window to recognize the login username. "Login Error. * Username not found. Please try again." Went through the parameters and reset evernything twice over. Username and Password are he same as i use to login to my data base from other programs including my CONTROL PANEL to SERVER. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Ren.
  6. The game has evolved. I now have logging activated but this is the new error coming up. "Could not connect to the database! Please verify database settings in includes/db.php." Created a new login name and password from the server side and verified the settings but still no good. I think it might be the "SERVER" set at local host instead of . Although i've never had thes type of issues setting up other data bases and connections . Really, this has thrown me :wacko:
  7. Here is the screen grab of the ADMIN log in page.
  8. Hi Guys, Installed the RESPONSIVE version and still the same issues. Unable to log into ADMIN as this is still stating "Login Error. * Username not alphanumeric. Please try again." Even though the details are correct as i use OCPM with the same settings to log in. Also php.ini is correctly set with 'Australia/Melbourne' Thoughts !
  9. No but i will try it tomorrow. Any suggestions on the current issues. Pulling my hair out.
  10. Hi Guys, Another issue is login from ADMIN window. No Matter what i try . I am unable to log in Cheers Ren
  11. Hi Guys, Trying to get my head around the date format for OllaCart . Installed and working well but the ERROR listed below still comes up. "Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home16/rabhobbi/public_html/online/osPOS25/includes/functions.php on line 1034" So the line of code of which i am not familiar to modify is :: echo(date("m-d H:i", $this->PostTime) . " - "); Another ERROR is :: "Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home16/rabhobbi/public_html/online/osPOS25/index.php:21) in /home16/rabhobbi/public_html/online/osPOS25/includes/newheader.php on line 15" Can any one suggest the fix for both ! Cheers Ren.
  12. Hi All, My name is Ren from R.A.B. Hobbies. I have been operating a osCommerce based store since 2007 using the 2.2 code store. Two months ago decided to update the entire store to the new platform 2.3.4 as well as the new Mini Template System. Best decision i've made in a long time. George was brilliant in helping apply all the changes required for Australian conditions to the site and template to conform. Costs involved were very resonable considering the amount of time required, and i will be without a doubt, be using George and his services in the future for ammendments and any new inclusions. So if you have the new 2.3.4 store. Without hesiatation get the Responsive Mini Template System installed. To get an idea of the look and feel take a visit to my site and have a look around. Remember it is a live site. Regards, Ren. rabhobbies.com.au
