    Install OsCommerce new installation

    @Hotclutch You are absolutely correct. I stand corrected. I ran into this exact problem when I was moving an old osC site from a server running PHP 5.x to a different server with PHP v7.x. However, as I now look back into my notes, it was NOT a PHP issue. Instead, the SQL setup on the new server was much more strict. The resolution was ... On my local WAMP server, after locating the file my.ini file, I had to edit the line that said "sql-mode= ... <blah, blah, blah> ....", and comment out the expression NO_ZERO_DATE. (I replicated the entire "sql-mode= " line below itself, commented out the first line (with a comment explaining what I did), and edited the copied line, removing the NO_ZERO_DATE expression.) @businesspromotion Is this on your local server, or a hosted server? Do you have access to edit the appropriate .ini file? If not, you may need to contact your host to resolve this for you. I apologize for the initial wild goose chase ... M

    @businesspromotion v2.3.4.1 was written to run under PHP v5.x, and will give you problems when running under PHP v7.x. Can your host roll back to PHP v5.x? While you can modify v2.3.4.1 to run under v7.x, you will continually chase issues as PHP evolves, resulting in your own fork of oSC. M

    @perualpacayarnandtextile Please note that you also have an issue on your About Us page ... Malcolm
  7. @Melhor Depending on the license used, many Open Source software projects can (and have) spin off to make commercial products. The people at Solomono have an arrangement with Harold (the original developer of osC) to advertise on this forum. https://solomono.net/ There's a free trial there. However, that's just a trial. As Steve mentioned, it is a commercial product . M

    osCommerce 2.3.4-1 EDGE

    @YePix There is no single 'EDGE' version. Everything after the August 2018 'Frozen' release, all the way up to the July 2019 release of 'Phoenix', was essentially called Edge. A lot of changes happened during that time period. Malcolm

    UK VAT - Zone Activated Mininum Order Amount

    If anyone else wishes to begin restricting what countries they ship to, due to the current and possibly upcoming VAT regulations, here's a list. Countries in the UK: England Scotland Wales Northern Ireland Countries in the EU: Austria Belgium Bulgaria Croatia Cyprus Czechia Denmark Estonia Finland France Germany Greece Hungary Ireland Italy Latvia Lithuania Luxembourg Malta Netherlands Poland Portugal Romania Slovakia Spain Sweden (I guess Greece never did make it out, did they?) At one time, there was an add-on that allowed quick and easy administration of the available countries through Admin. https://apps.oscommerce.com/aKZPh&active-countries Unfortunately, it has not been updated in years, and required massive core-code changes.

    UK VAT - Zone Activated Mininum Order Amount

    In that case, I guess we ALL shops outside of the UK that sell internationally will need the header-tag module (or hook) that does what @burt stated: One additional suggestion ... have the module block the check-out function if the total is less than the specified amount (adjustable in Admin). ( hint: maybe a supporter code module?) M

    @puddlec Perhaps, but then again ... Sometimes, it's easier to ask for forgiveness, than it is to ask for permission

    UK VAT - Zone Activated Mininum Order Amount

    (emphasis added) Wouldn't an online store with a shopping cart (even if based outside of the UK) be considered a "online marketplace" ? Or, am I misinterpreting this? M
