  1. Restarting Apache made no change. However I have found how to fix this. I copied the php.ini file (which Cpanel creates automatically if you change certain php settings for a user) in which the "allow_url_fopen = On" setting is set and uploaded it to the admin folder as well. That fixed the whole problem. No, I dont understand why cause since the php.ini file is in the root (public_html folder) it should be set for any subfolder as far as I know. But anyway, it works now. I now have access to the mapping settings and the "Run import actions". Hopefully from here it all goes well. Thanks for the assistance! Maybe my "fix" helps others too here.
  2. I dont understand. The readme specifically states to rename that oscb directory. This is my url (after renaming the folder): https://www.mydomain.nl/my_secret_directory/index.php? That is exactly the same isnt it? (if you account for different domain and renamed folder). Unless there should be info after the question mark but it does not state so in the readme (nor in your link above but maybe the editor cuts those off)?
  3. But, at the same time my own file_get_contents() test, from my new osC4.x to my old osC 2.x (from within the exact same folders) does work. Isnt that a bit weird, cause that means allow_url_fopen = On is working, else it would not work. (oh, and both sites are running on the same server as well)
  4. Done that, thanks. There it says it is not enabled. How is that possible? It is enabled in php.ini file in the account. (I enabled it through Cpanel). It shows enabled under phpinfo(); but it shows disabled in the admin panel 😲 Any idea?
  5. That is Yes, that is set to on.
  6. I am having some troubles too with the connection. I have followed the steps in the readme but I keep getting the following error when trying to save the settings: "Error while establishing connection: file_get_contents(https://www.mydomain.nl/my_secret_directory/index.php?): failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found" To make sure I can read from my online store I created a small test using "file_get_contents" to output some text on my new osCommerce 4.x shop (from a file hosted at my online osCommerce shop v2.x) and that works fine so a connection is possible. Only thing I noticed is in the example secret key it starts with OSC_alotofsymbolshere, and mine starts with DEST_, could that be the problem?

    osCommerce v4 Beta 1

    Can I be added to the list of beta 2 testers? [addon] You showed me a wip version earlier this year.
  8. Perfect, I will give it a go! I guess I will see soon enough wether it works with MySQL 10 . I see, maybe it is an idea to add a note to the code you add to this topic which will not be part of your package so its clear for an interested user wether he needs to add that himself or not?
  9. Hi Hotclutch, I am interested to test your version to see if I can use it with my own shops. Are those links I see in the first page of this topic up-to-date or can I find your version with the latest changes elsewhere? You wrote its compatible with php 7.x, how about MySQL 10?

    New management and osCommerce v4

    Yesterday I had a presentation where I was shown the beta in a development environment as well as seeing it in action on a couple of live webshops using google screenshare. I havent actually used it myself! I purely watched a presentation so I can not really say anything about its usability, its speed, its included features/modules/add-ons etc. But I liked what I saw so far. A nice, modern and extensive ecommerce software with a very decent looking default theme. The admin panel is very extensive, at times a little confusing due to all options and extra options. I was told they are reworking that to make it all a bit clearer and easier to use. I applied to be a beta tester for version 4.x and have decided to keep my stores at the current version and wait and see what version 4.x brings. 🙂 Thanks to Vadym for the presentation.
