    @radhavallabhSince it works in other shops but not yours, it must be something unique to yours. If you turn the addon off in admin do all of the urls work correctly? If it does, try using the Uninstall setting and then reload the shop side. Does that fix it? If not, try turning off all cache options in the settings and try again. If it still fails then the only thing I can think to do is to install it into a new, basic, shop. That should work since it works here. Then you can try it with your database and if it fails, then it is something there that is causing the problem.

    Hi Jack,
    Will try to send you an invite for Beta 1, and will definitely send one for Beta 2. There is no secrecy whatsoever, but we need to be cautious of the number of people testing it, as otherwise we may be overwhelmed by the all the feedback and comments. Please bear with us while we are working on rolling v4 out.

    There is code to delete sessions but not for when it expires, as I recall. The session is deleted for certain actions, like when a paypal order complete or the SID changes due to the recreate setting in admin. But they are not deleted based on age which is why the table needs to have old entries removed occasionally.

    Hi @valquiria23Yes, that is valid code. However, it should not be needed. Please check your language file, like english.php, to make sure there is a statement to define CHARSET. If there is and if it is blank change it to have UTF-8, like this
    define('CHARSET', 'utf-8'); It it is already there, check your includes/application_top.php file, if this is for a pre-Phoenix shop, and make sure the code to include this addon comes after the code to load the languages.
    If both of the above are correct, then it would require troubleshooting to find the cause. The change you mentionrf should work but if your site uses accented characters be sure they are handled correctly by this addon.

    A new version has been uploaded with these changes. Tested through Phoenix 1.0.8.6 and php 8.
    Added version for Phoenix .0.8.0 and above. Changed code for php 7.4 warnings. Fixed mistake with the uninstall code. Replaced HTTP/1.x protocol checks with $_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL'].

    It's a pleasure for me to do this (W3 osCommerce), because i benefited from the contributions others have made over decades now. My main motivation though is to produce something that the community can have, and hope that contributors will return to the forum. Maybe that will take time after the damage done.
    The worst thing Harald did during the last years of his tenure was to allow a certain individual and his clique to run amok on this forum. It drove a wedge into the community, and hugely disadvantaged everyone. A contribution or thread like mine (or Rudens) would not have been possible. It would have just been deleted.
    The best thing the new management has done was to get rid of that clique. Hopefully the community can be repaired now and grow.
    You really ought to be banned from here. Your heart/support is with Phoenix - which is fine. But then go post your drivel on that forum and leave the rest of us in peace.

    You can ask them to but it is unlikely they will, assuming this is a shared server.  The popular control panels have removed older php versions and many hosts don't have the setup to add them back in, or won't even if they do. Perhaps yours is different.

    The addon doesn't stop attacks. It just prevents the message from displaying on the site. For a while a few years ago there was a common attempt where the hacker would enter an invalid command just so they could see the command. Once they had the format, they would put in valid data and try again. The shops code should handle such attacks but the older shops don't. But even in Phoenix, at least earlier versions, still displayed the error so that should be stopped regardless.

    The older versions of oscommerce used definitions, those items with capital letters in the errors. The later versions did away with those and use actual names. So you have to replace them to get the code to work. In this case, replace
    DIR_WS_MODULES with 
    'includes/modules/' Note that the apostrophes are required.

    I'm sure it could be done but preventing a customer from buying more seems like a bad idea. hen the customer is returned from paypal with the Express module, he is logged in if not already done and then sent to the confirmation page. I suppose you could put a note there telling them that changing the order will cause the charge to fail.
    Other than that, I'm not aware of a way to stop it except for switching to the Standard module. That one only shows up on the checkout pages so the amount is final at that point.

    Jack_mcs got a reaction from Smoky Barnable in Moving from local server to host for testing   
    This can happen if you have the admin password protected with a popup and the login is different than the one set for the whole site. The server will log you into the first but when you try to login to the second, it conflicts with what is already present and you get into a loop situation. So remove the popup to the admin if you have one and it should work.

    Jack_mcs got a reaction from Demitry in FATAL ERROR: register_globals is disabled in php.ini please enable it! Godaddy upgrade July 30 2021   
    @diliptAs Demitry mentioned, it is probably due to your host changing the php version on you. Godaddy uses cpanel, except maybe on some old servers, and cpanel stopped support of version prior to 7. Depending upon your hosting plan, you can ask them to switch you back to the older php version but I doubt they will do that.
    But I'm confused by the above. Are you saying your shop was running on that version? If so, you don't need register globals.
