  1. No problem at all. I am learning the ropes here so it is great to see any form of questions and answers along with comments and opinions. I think for me it would have been problematic to first find the link and then go through each commit on Github so I am better of using the version that Raiwa kindly provided the link for but if you have something that works for you then that is the most important thing.
  2. I am using the one in the link provided by Raiwa. It seems to run fine (give or take a few header errors when trying installing Paypal App) on PHP 7.2.8 https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/releases
  3. Once again many thanks for the assistance and the links. I will check them out then try to see what the situation is. Right now the idea is not even to attempt to use v2.3.4.1 CE Frozen version in a live environment. Either today or hopefully I will use winmerge and start looking at trying to incorporate whatever changes are required to make v2.3.4 compatible with PHP 7 then I will run some tests which is what I want to do initially.
  4. Hello Raiwa, nice to meet you. Many thanks for the links. I downloaded it, you were right I was not using the latest version 2.3.4.1 CE Frozen. I have it running on PHP 7.2.8 on XAMPP, all seems fine. I had some not so important header notices in the end admin end after installing the Paypal App but had no errors in the front end. Thanks, now I have to make some time to try to find all the PHP 5/7 edits using winmerge
  5. Thank you for all the background information, lots of it makes sense to me now. So if development continued under the name Edge and the code was updated to be PHP 7 compatible along with the v2.3.4.1 hotfix then it means that package should work on both PHP 5 and PHP 7. It also means that with using winmerge it should be possible to see where the PHP 5/7 issues are therefore it should be possible to change them line by line on v2.3.4 to end up with a bootstrap-free v2.3.4 fully compliant on PHP 7
  6. Hello Steve, nice to meet you. Thank you for the post. I completely sincerely appreciate all the advice and comments that have been given here, it is a great community here. As I said in an earlier post to Malcolm I currently have no interest in bootstrap and this is for a number of reasons. The main being because the oscommerce stores will be used for testing and demo purposes without ever going live therefore when you mention it is about my customers you are mistaken because there are no customers and for this part of the project there will not be any customers in future either. The end result would not be just limited to trying to have version 2.3.4 running on PHP 7+ by updating all the necessary code but it is something I hope to do or have done by someone by paying for it.
  7. Hello Tsimi, thank you for the post. I am running this version on PHP 7.2.8 on XAMPP: https://github.com/gburton/osCommerce-234-bootstrap/archive/master.zip At the moment I cannot get past admin login I am unable to check to see which package it shows in admin. I listed some of the deprecated errors in an earlier post: Deprecated: Methods with the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP; ht_noscript has a deprecated constructor in C:...catalog\includes\modules\header_tags\ht_noscript.php on line 13 Deprecated: The each() function is deprecated. This message will be suppressed on further calls in C:\......admin\includes\functions\compatibility.php on line 22 Deprecated: Methods with the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP; logger has a deprecated constructor in C:\........admin\includes\classes\logger.php on line 13 Please could you give me a download link URL for the EDGE version you have so I can test it on my PHP 7.2.8 because the above link is the only I have managed to locate that is related to CE/Edge
  8. Thank you for the link, I will look at it and maybe look at some coder for hire websites too. I appreciate the reply, thank you.
  9. Hello Malcolm, thank you for the post. I just want to use a PHP 7 compatible version of oscommerce 2.3.4 for my projects to test various codes and play around with using test websites not available to the public.
  10. Is 2.3.4.1 Edge/CE the same as 2.3.4 Gold here: https://github.com/gburton/osCommerce-234-bootstrap/archive/master.zip If it is, then it throws errors upon error on PHP 7.2.8 on front end and admin end. Here are some admin examples: Deprecated: Methods with the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP; ht_noscript has a deprecated constructor in C:...catalog\includes\modules\header_tags\ht_noscript.php on line 13 Deprecated: The each() function is deprecated. This message will be suppressed on further calls in C:\......admin\includes\functions\compatibility.php on line 22 Deprecated: Methods with the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP; logger has a deprecated constructor in C:\........admin\includes\classes\logger.php on line 13 It would be strange if Gold was the same as CE/Edge because of all these Deprecated error codes after reading your earlier post suggesting it was working on PHP 7.2 but giving a few errors in the error log. Does anybody have a download link to Edge/CE if it not the same as Gold?
  11. If 2.3.4.1 Edge/CE is compatible with PHP 7.1 but not PHP 7.2 then it means more work will be required in future to get that sorted out but from what I read the development has been Frozen (hence the name). Interesting reading what you wrote, I will download and test but downside for me is that I will probably not be able to use winmerge to compare the versions and update 2.3.4 to become fully PHP 7.1 compliant because the 2.3.4.1 Edge/CE will have bootstrap code too and would probably be extremely time consuming to complete that is why I am willing to donate or pay. As mentioned earlier I have no desire or need for bootstrap but I would really like to have 2.3.4 fully compatible with PHP 7+
  12. Well thank you for your post. Going by what you said regarding the unofficial releases, what is the difference between 2.3.4.1 Edge/CE/Frozen and version 2.3.4.1? Are the unofficial 2.3.4.1 Edge/CE/Frozen simply 2.3.4.1 with bootstrap? If so can you confirm if they supress php 7 or if they are running on php 7 with all the benefits of php 7. About version 2.3.4 and 2.3.4.1 they are the last official releases regardless of Harald and his input (or lack of). Not having bootstrap is not a big deal for me. If unofficial 2.3.4.1 Edge/CE/Frozen are not supporting php 7 then as mentioned earlier I will be willing to donate and contribute financially if it is possible for somebody to take a clean version of 2.3.4 (without the hotfix) then modify each and every place where the php 5/7 issue occurs so it works fully on php 7.
  13. Hello All, After looking in to this I can see that oscommerce 2.3.4 does not work with php 7 but oscommerce 2.3.4.1 does work on both php 5+ and php 7+ I would like to use the 2.3.4 version running correctly on php 7 but without the hotfix. Regarding all the bootstrap versions (CE, Frozen, Gold and any others out there) they are not authorised oscommerce official releases so I have no intention of using them just because they have bootstrap. From what I found after researching is that none of those unauthorised versions work with php 7 anyway. The hotfix release 2.3.4.1 allows for oscommerce to run on php 7 but it does not provide the benefits of using php 7 which in many tests by experts and users has shown to be up to 10x faster than php 5. It does not also prepare for the day when most server and hosting companies will force customers on to php 7 In version 2.3.4.1 apart from the Paypal module throwing an error the rest of the front end seems to be working as normal. The error is shown in shopping_cart.php when using Paypal Express as a method of payment and the error has been mentioned in several posts in the forum before. There are several other errors thrown in admin too but they are minimal as the site more or less works. I will be willing to donate and contribute financially if it is possible for somebody to take a clean version of 2.3.4 (without the hotfix) then modify each and every place where the php 5/7 issue occurs so it can be released as an official version 2.3.4.2 or at least an unofficial version 2.3.4.2 or if a step by step guide could be released on how to update and upgrade version 2.3.4 to work completely on php 7 with all the benefits of php 7
