  1. Just to update on my post. I've been running osCommerce for a long time. And I know that Jack has helped me in the past -- but this time, he really needs to be applauded. My long-time was was "locking" my database (without warning) and it was a real problem. They couldn't tell me specifically what the problem was, etc. So I started to look for other hosts and I found a few that said they specialized in osCommerce. Well... here's the thing. No. They. Don't. They might know how to install it, or they might be willing to host it -- but really specializing in it? Well. I tried one and after promising to migrate my site they said they couldn't and it was my fault. LOL. Really? The site worked on the other host (if it wasn't locked) -- and it wouldn't work on your host. Fast forward, and Jack came along. You can be certain that Jack can make it happen. And here's the thing, he just does it. If you don't understand something, he explains it in a super easy way too! I am very thankful.
  2. HI Jack, Sorry if I wasn't clear. We're *not* using IPs at all. We were only testing the new host via this method. The update is that the "new" host is unable to make this happen. You will be hearing from me shortly. Thanks, Pete
  3. Been running osCommerce since 2002 or 2003 -- can't remember... at Pair.com Site has run well all these years. Great relationship. Rarely needed support, but when I did, they were there and it was handled quickly. Fast forward to this weekend... out of the blue the site is down... Ok! No problem, let see what's going on - after "checking" they tell me that they had to "lock" my DB -- but they can't tell me why - only that were queries that were taking too long and bogging down the DB server. Fair enough! Let's test it and see what's up! We can't duplicate it. They can't tell me what time it happened, they can't tell much of anything except for a list of the queries, which I had no problem accessing. I tell them to please unlock and let's monitor it - if it happens again, PLEASE let me know right away so we can find out what happened. Nope. The next day they lock it down. No warning, no info. Nothing. I get lucky and they unlock it yet again -- this time with the understanding that although I don't want to leave, it's clear they don't want me there. That's fine. So I set my sights on a new host and happen upon TMD (recommended by osCommerce). Well... so far that's been one mistake after the next. They tell me it's migrated and that I can test - however I can't access it to test it. (using IP domain.com www.domain.com via host file in PC dir)... They get that working, so I can see the index page, and some pages, but none of the pages for categories, items, etc. Is this part of how things are now? Miserable, I tell you. They said they specialize in osCommerce. LOL. Anyone else to try? Thanks for reading all that. More of a vent, but...
  4. What are your thoughts on that? I'm assuming that means that for as long as the v5.x is an option, those sites will continue to be stable? The funny part is that the "other" site became unstable -- and had that line in it, yet I made the "st" change and it was better... Definitely above my level of intelligence. LOL.
  5. Another note... Ha! I just realized, my htaccess has this: AddType application/x-httpd-php52cgi .php Action application/x-httpd-php52cgi /cgi-sys/php52.cgi Not sure how long that'll work. (This is on that other site, not the one I started this thread with.)
  6. Thought you'd find this funny... for anyone who stumbles on my post. We run a different site... and we had a similar issue. In that case all I had to do was change: function tep_sanitize_string($string) { // $string = preg_replace(' +', ' ', trim($string)); $string = str_replace(' +', ' ', trim($string)); return preg_replace("/[<>]/", '_', $string); } The "str" bit was the key.
  7. I ended up trying to upgrade the SEO mod, which didn't go well... So, I'm in the process of restoring the site. What we learned is that the host went to php 7.4 and that created some issues. I *should* have the host down to 5.4... hopefully that solves the issue. In the end, I'd like to have it up and running properly, but if this gets it back up, great.

    ULTIMATE Seo Urls 5 - by FWR Media

    I tried to update from a previous version and ended up with: Fatal error: Class 'Usu_Main' not found in /home2/cash/public_html/includes/application_top.php on line 349
  9. Thanks for the reply. I think I found a thread that explains things. With all due respect, it appears you are trying to sell me something. Forgive me if I am wrong.
  10. I see two links in your sig, W3... and Vanilla... I apologize, but I don't see a guide on code changes, etc. for this problem. Thanks, Pete
  11. For example, here's one of the errors: Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /home2/cash/public_html/includes/classes/seo.class.php on line 1823 1823 from the file is: : eregi("(".implode('|', $pattern).")", $this->uri) It appears that this occurs for multiple files when you visit the site.
  12. I made the change tot he language file... but I still get all the errors... I'm wondering if I'm missing something simple? The domain is cashcandle.com I know it's old... but anyone able to give guidance would be very appreciated. Thanks! for ($i=0, $n=sizeof($this->browser_languages); $i<$n; $i++) { reset($this->languages); while (list($key, $value) = each($this->languages)) { //if (eregi('^(' . $value . ')(;q=[0-9]\\.[0-9])?$', $this->browser_languages[$i]) && isset($this->catalog_languages[$key])) { if (preg_match('/^(' . $value . ')(;q=[0-9]\\.[0-9])?$^/i', $this->browser_languages[$i]) && isset($this->catalog_languages[$key])) { $this->language = $this->catalog_languages[$key]; break 2;
  13. Nope. And even if you look at where I used the ssl with the 443, it still didn't work.
