    [Contribution] Ultimate SEO URLs - by Chemo

    Hi, Just installed Ultimate SEO URLs version 2.1.d on my test shop which is running locally. When I try to access the home page, I get Server error! The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there was an error in a CGI script. If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster. Error 500 If I remove the extra (new!) stuff from the .htaccess file I get the home page, but clicking on a category gives me a Object not found! The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author of that page about the error. If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster. Error 404 (obviously because the page redirection isn't working because I removed it!) SO should this work when run locally? If so, what directory should I have in my .htaccess file - I currently have /catalog/ as my store is in http://localhost/catalog/ Many thanks, Lucy

    .htaccess security contribution

    Sorry - numpty question here - but this contrib gives an updated .htaccess file. Where should I install this? Just to the catalog directory, or to the admin directory as well? Anywhere else? And why would I want to ban the whole of Turkey? Many thanks, L
  5. I'm after help with http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,5125 Change Default Image Directories. Getting Error - destination does not exist' & 'Error: Catalog products images directory does not exist: /home/handmade/public_html/images/products/' when I try to upload *some* images to subdirectories on page categories.php. I have created all of the sub directories (corresponding to the sub-categories on the site) and I have set the permissions to be 777 on each of these directories. The annoying thing is that sometimes an image will upload straightaway with no problem, sometimes I get the error but when I refesh the page it uploads, and now in one subcategory I can't upload any pictures. Can anyone shed any light on this problem? The site is here Many thanks, Lucy
  6. Solution to 'Destination does not exist' 'Error: catalog products images directory does not exist' when trying to upload product images through Admin. Just in case anyone else is searching through these forums looking for help like I was! 1. Make sure you create the directory structure on the server with file names *exactly* as they are inyour categories / sub-categories (i.e. with capitol letters, spaces etc) 2. Make sure your images /products & images/categories directories all have permissions of 777. ALSO!!! make sure all of your directories below these have permissions of 777 So for example, my structure is images/products/Rings/Toe Rings and *each* of these directories must have permissions of 777 How this helps someone else - I was struggling for hours with this yesterday and didn't find it spelled out anywhere.

  7. I've been applying this contribution, and trying to make it work with More Pics 6 (sort of!) BUT I have been having problems when adding *some* product images. After much struggling, I think I've found out why. When you have several levels of sub category, and / or your image has a long filename, this makes a very long string to store in the database (in table products). The field that stores the file structure + file name (products_image) is defined as varchar(64). This is easily filled up with several layers of sub category and a descriptive file names! The field, therefore, is truncated when its written to the database. So when you try to view that product, the image isn't found (because its looking for a file with an incomplete file name.) Sorry - I'm probably not explaining it very well - my brain is a bit fried!!!! But wondered if anyone had any thoughts on this, or if I need to tell my website owner togive her categories & images shorter names! Thanks, Lucy
