  2. bot trying to hack band end

    always best to have a static IP. Only a small extra in cost. If not you will have to edit your .htaccess file every time the IP changes. Question, are you running on a self hosted machine? If yes, then I hope not a PC!! I would recommend View counter as suggested by @Jack_mcs
  3. bot trying to hack band end

    Is a .htaccess file, in your admin directory, setup with : AuthType Basic AuthName "Password Protected Area" AuthUserFile /***/***/***/htpasswd Require valid-user Order Deny,Allow Deny from all Allow from 'Your IP address' and has your admin directory been renamed to something random? Mike
  4. CE Frozen and SMTP mail

    @crimble crumble would it be possible for you to make the function available, as with my limited programming I'm having difficultly understanding the PHPmailer class and how to add it for smtp emails. Thanks Mike

  6. CE Frozen and SMTP mail

    HI, Has anyone set up SMTP mail with authentication successfully using CE/frozen? I had it up and running 2.3.4BS Gold, but email.php looks different in CE/frozen. Can anyone advise? Thanks Mike
  7. Hooks and nested modules in CE

    @kymation@burt Thank you for your help. I just couldn't get my head round the problem even after you told me the solution. Leaving the screen and walking away for the night and it seems so obvious now. Thanks again! Mike
  8. Hooks and nested modules in CE

    Hi Jim @kymation I still can't figure this out. (I'm using the CE frozen version) I'm limited with my code experience. I can create a hook (e.g. 'hello world' ) and insert it on the product_info.php page, but I can't add it the product_listing.php page. I register the hook in index.php using $OSCOM_Hooks->register('product'); and call the hook in product_listing.php page using $prod_list_contents .= $OSCOM_Hooks->call('product', 'hello_world'); the fatal error I get is: Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function call() on null in D:\xampp70\htdocs\shopce\includes\modules\product_listing.php:116 Stack trace: #0 D:\xampp70\htdocs\shopce\includes\modules\content\index_products\cm_ip_product_listing.php(148): include() #1 D:\xampp70\htdocs\shopce\includes\classes\osc_template.php(146): cm_ip_product_listing->execute() #2 D:\xampp70\htdocs\shopce\index.php(60): oscTemplate->getContent('index_products') #3 {main} thrown in D:\xampp70\htdocs\shopce\includes\modules\product_listing.php on line 116 So where next. I assume because the index page has nested modules this error occurs, but I don't understand how the nested modules work. The product_info.php page is a straight forward single page and registering and calling the hook in the same file I understand. So can anyone advise please. Thanks Mike
  9. Hi, Quick question, has anyone defined a hook for use in a nested module on the index page. i.e. cm_ip_product_listing.php? I can't seem to figure this out, as I get the following error: Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function register() on null in D:\xampp70\htdocs\.....\includes\modules\product_listing.php: Adding a hook to product_info.php works ok, which doesn't have nested modules. any help please. Thanks Mike
  10. Upgrade to, now can't login

    I started again, back to where I was and problem has gone away. The gremlin didn't find his way this time
  11. importing Database to new install

    I imported the whole DB was I wouldn't loose any data, even the data and extra table columns used for the addons. So when I install those addons the data already exists. But importing table by table is another option. Good Luck Mike
  12. Database structure

    I think the differences are as follows: TABLE `categories_description` `categories_seo_title` varchar(128) COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci DEFAULT NULL (NEW) TABLE `manufacturers_info` `manufacturers_seo_title` varchar(128) COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci DEFAULT NULL (NEW) TABLE `orders_products` `products_model` varchar(64) COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci DEFAULT NULL, (CHANGE) TABLE `products` `products_model` varchar(64) COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci DEFAULT NULL, (CHANGE) CREATE TABLE `sessions` `sesskey` varchar(128) COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci NOT NULL, (CHANGE) CREATE TABLE `testimonials` ( `testimonials_id` int(11) NOT NULL, `customers_name` varchar(255) COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci NOT NULL, `date_added` datetime DEFAULT NULL, `last_modified` datetime DEFAULT NULL, `testimonials_status` tinyint(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '1' (NEW)
  13. importing Database to new install

    just to document how I resolved this problem. I assumed the DB structure for BS gold and are the same. I then setup a new installation of CE, and first exported the data from the 'configuation' and 'configuration_group' tables. Then I imported the DB from BS gold. I then removed all rows from the configuation and configuration_group tables, and then imported the data from the initial CE installation. Now I can install any existing modules and any new modules. All seems well. I think!
  14. Database structure

    Just a quick question: Are there any changes in the DB structure between, 2.3.4BS Gold and CE (frozen)? thanks Mike
  15. I've just imported my shop database (2.3.4BS Gold, running php5.6) to my test shop ( CE frozen, php 7) and now I can't login using my customer account. System states the wrong email or password was used. I know both are right, so did the import of the DB, using mysql command line, effect something? Has something changed using php7. The test shop is using xampp for windows 7.0.029 Prior to the import of the shop DB, the login function, checkout etc worked as it should. Can anyone provide help? Regards Mike
