  1. Hey @frankl Thanks for the guide. I've managed to solve the problem! It was as you said a corrupted html_output.php file, which I managed to fix by uploading a fresh copy. I was still getting the internal server 500 error though even after uploading a fresh copy, the culprit seemed to have been the admin configure.php file. I had it was you had specified but it wasn't working for some reason so I decided to to a fresh install on the server and see what type of configure file it produced and voila that managed to solve the problem at hand. This is the current working configure.php format: where dir1/catalog is the directory the store is located in. Seems some of the variable definitions weren't required for the 2.3.4 Edge version. Once again thanks frankl ! Could not have done it without your expertise .
  2. Spot on with that @frankl ! Seems my html_output.php file was corrupted, not sure how that happened actually, but to be safe I've re-uploaded a fresh copy of my admin folder . Brilliant help as always, that helped me get rid of the current error, though I think my configure.php file may still be incorrect since I'm receiving an internal server 500 error, and I've checked and removed all .htaccess files so those shouldn't be preventing my site from loading. Could file permissions be one of the underlying reasons for this ? I'm currently looping through to see if I can find one that has odd permissions set on it.
  3. Hi @frankl Thanks for the speedy response. I've followed the format you've given me but no success. Below is the correct configure settings: and yet when I try to access : I still get the error Could it be that I'm simply trying to access it incorrectly ? I've also checked that I have no old htaccess file hanging around so that shouldnt be preventing it from being viewed ?
  4. Hi All I was really hoping someone could help with the problem I'm experiencing. I've tried to migrate my site from localhost to a live production server but can't seem to get the admin page to work. I've changed my configure.php files and the configure.php file for the main site seems to be working perfectly fine as I can access and run the site normally. However when I try to access the admin index.php I get the following error: Where 'live/catalog/' is the folder in which I have my site saved. I suspect that it might be something wrong with my configure.php file for the admin side but can't seem to grasp what exactly is incorrect. this is what I have currently: Thanks in advance to anyone who can help :)
  5. Hi @aquaman Have you tried the correct credentials in your configure.php file? located in includes/configure.php and admin/includes/configure.php . I had a similar issue and resolved it by changing server password and database name. Have you moved/migrated your site across by any chance? hope this helps :) Kind Regards
  6. Thanks as always @kymation and thank you so much as well @burt , those superb photoshop skills actually helped me understand the design perfectly well. I'll certainly try and load the slider in the header and report back on the outcome. Hopefully it'll also help anyone else who'd like to try the same :)
  7. Hi All I noticed that this thread also seems to be the help thread for the Banner Rotator Content Module for Modular Front Page (according to the installation documents). I've managed to successfully implement it in my test store, but was wondering if anyone might have some input as to how I can modify if such that the carousel banner stretches from one end of the screen to the other and the left and right columns will appear after/underneath it? this is what it looks like currently as per the attachment. The picture itself is small, so it doesn't highlight my point, however, I do have the content width set to maximum possible (12 in the admin options). Does anyone have any info as to how I could get this to stretch all the way across the screen and then get the columns to appear after? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  8. Thanks a million @kymation . Works like a charm, you’re awesome ! Just a small note, in case anyone else ends up following this thread and requires the same/similar fixes, I made the changes Jim recommended to the cm_fp_customer_greeting.php in the following directory : catalog/includes/modules/content/front_page/cm_fp_customer_greeting.php and not in the catalog/includes/modules/content/front_page/templates/cm_fp_customer_greeting.php. Was probably just a slight mix up.
  9. @kymation do you mean theres no customer_greeting(); call or no tep_customer_greeting(); call ? as I didn’t mention any use of ‘customer_greeting();’ Also the reason line number 13 is showing is because I had just deleted a few blank lines in the file as I have multiple editor windows open so it makes it easier to view without white lines :) I am using version 2.2.2 as well as the responsive code section, NOT the 2.3.x code. I apologise if my previous explanation was a bit confusing.
  10. hi Jim @kymation I’ve been through the error logs and it seems to be problem with the tep_customer_greeting definition. My error log: With the line in question (line 13) having I’ve checked english.php for a customer greeting field but there wasn’t a definition for it,I then added one in but this still didn’t work and have since removed it. Furthermore I think it may have something to do with the cm_fp_customer_greeting.php file located in /catalog/includes/modules/content/front_page which when compared to the ‘customer_greeting.php’ file in /Users/Desktop/LiveSiteBootstrap/catalog/includes/modules/content/index is much more different ,in the sense that I think it may need to be re-written for bootstrap edge ? The reason I think this is because of the syntax looking a bit like the old syntax I’ve noted in the MFP index.php file which wouldn’t work with Edge. please do let me know what you think of my theory. I have since tried to ‘re-write’ it but to no avail. Much appreciated Jim :)
  11. Hey @kymation okay thanks a lot that makes sense, I’ve just installed the compatibility add-on now as well as made the requested changes that you said I should and voila ! We seem to have some good progress ! The main page loads (as it didn’t before this) , but seems to be pretty blank. I know that most of the modules need to have some data to display in order to have anything to show, example the main text and "the Upcoming Products will not show if there are no future products in the specified time frame. This is the default.” so I know I’ll have to go add some stuff for that in order to make it change/display other stuff, but I seem to have encountered a little possible bug with the ‘Customer greeting’ module as when I set it to activate my site has all of it’s data disappear from the screen, like in the below attachment, any possible explanations/fixes?
  12. Hi @kymation My apologies on the delayed post( I was experimenting a bit) and on the following, replacing the code you had mentioned with that of the new MFP code actually causes the page to break and display an HTML 500 error, when I replaced the word ‘index’ below with ‘front_page’ , that was when the middle of the page was presented with blank data, whilst all the modules were turned on, or off for that matter. I’m assuming this would mean that the code for the MFP would need to be re-written completely ? You mentioned that if I install the compatibility add-on then most add-ons should work with the latest OSC Edge version, would that also work for the MFP then? i.e. install the compatibility add-on and then re-install the MFP add-on ? As always, much much appreciated Jim ! Kind Regards
  13. Hi @kymation I've tried the fix recommended but unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work. The page (index page) loads but the middle is blank, none of the front_page additions seem to show up at all. Also, would that mean that most add-ons for Edge will experience similar issues with needing certain pages to be rewritten to accommodate it? If that is the case, which version of OSCommerce with bootstrap would be ideal for a beginner to work on that will have the majority of add-ons patched for it already? Thanks again Jim, really appreciate it!
  14. Hi @kymation i hope you could help me, I’ve been trying to install the Modular Front Page (the latest version available for download) on 2.3.4 Responsive BS Edge but I’ve been having difficulties, I’ve replaced all the files in the relevant directories and have double checked this, I think my error is due to the index.php file. When I use the index.php file provided in the download, my store doesn’t load and I get an HTML 500 error, but reverting back to the old index file allows the store page to load but obviously without the Modular Front Page (MFP) additions From what I understand above, is the index.php file provided in the MFP add-on not converted to the bootstrap Edge version already? Does it still need to be re-written ? I’ve tried using the original index.php file that I installed oscommerce with and then replacing the above code that you mentioned with the MFP’s index.php additional code (quoted below) but now the page loads but without the MFP changes/additions. The content in the centre only is blank. Is this what you meant when you said the above code should be replaced , did you mean to replace it with this code? Also is there anything else that should be replaced/deleted as the installation document says that there are some lines to be added/deleted. If you could kindly assist me with this I’d greatly appreciate it. Please and Thank You ! PS: if anyone else out there has any helpful hints I’d really really appreciate it
  15. Hey @mdtaylorlrim Hope your online store has been moving well. I saw the issue you were having and I think I'm experiencing the same thing you were, could you walk me through what you did in order to fix it? I'd really appreciate it :)
