  1. If you have your web site, database, domain name all on the same hosting area, localhost would still have worked because localhost would be correct for such a setup.
  2. I would also add your footer banner is linked too this OsCommerce site and not back to your home page.
  3. The css of the site isn't being seen. Either on its own or via a template. This is a path issue. Check your IP address or domain name that replaces localhost is at the same level as localhost was.

    How to install SSL on OSC

    Thanks Matt. This is all part of me getting the Pending status email sent. My hosts are suggesting using smtp instead of sendmail. Just waiting for their next reply before I try it. Any other ramifications if I do use the SMTP email setting ?

    How to install SSL on OSC

    The installed configure.php files use const instead of define. Which is correct ? Do I need to add the "define('ENABLE_SSL', true);" to a new install of ? If the install showed a green thumbs up against SSL, should it add the enable line to config ? const HTTP_SERVER = 'https://abcd.com'; const COOKIE_OPTIONS = [ 'lifetime' => 0, 'domain' => 'abcd.com', 'path' => '/shop2/', 'samesite' => 'Lax', 'secure' => true, ];

    Easy CSV Impoert

    If you're just starting out, I'm pretty sure the coders for OsCommerce will explain that is not something to use for a new commercial site/installation. It is now very old and superseded by Phoenix.Edition v107.xx, currently at 13 and under continued development. Good luck and welcome to OsCommerce.

    Wholesale (SPPC lite)

    Thanks for the quick responses. I will stick with v11 for now but also play with v12. If I find any other issues, I'll let you know.

    CSS forced reload

    CSS forced reload I was having a lot of trouble getting Edge (with chrome core) and Chrome to reload css after making changes. Even to the point of deleting and replacing the css file and still no luck. After searching, I found this site. Original source link below. I post here in case it helps others. Apologies if this is not the right thing to do. Admins can delete if necessary. Original source

    Wholesale (SPPC lite)

    Hello. I got further with my install of the Lite version and : Installed Version: OSCOM CE Phoenix v1.0.7.10 I got one item that already existed and managed to apply a wholesale price to it and buy it. When I want to add a new product, the error shows below. Trying to click the Language Specific tab for the item, or any of the three tabs, I get sent to the admin index page. Any help would be welcomed. 1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1 select products_ws_price from products where products_id = [TEP STOP]
  12. Hi.

    Where do I create a post for a user created module please ?
    Specifically the Wholesale addition.

      Usually any addon you get will come with a readme which should have the necessary details on how to contact the addon maker.  Some addon makers like to have an open thread, some like email, some absolve themself of responsibility.  Read the readme (if there is one) and it may tell you.

      It was late, I probably overlooked it.


  13. admin edit order Hello. Is it possible to edit a customer's order once placed ? The CE Phoenix allows me to see a customer order and click edit. After that, there's no way to edit quantities or delete items. Thanks

    Customer group pricing

    Customer group pricing I can't see anywhere to set specific prices for specific customers. My aim is to have a wholesale trade ordering site where current customers can order online by logging in to see what "they" pay. Is this possible out of the box ? Thanks

    Admin login retrieval

    Admin login retrieval Is there an option to retrieve the admin password for a new Phoenix install ? I managed to get to creating the install, demo fruit site etc. I can't get beyond the admin login screen even though I believe I'm using the correct info. I still have the install folders all in place etc. so maybe that's it. Thanks for any help.

    Admin login retrieval

    Ok, great stuff. Looks like I have some reading to do. All customers are conspicuous by their pending covid lockdown so I think I'll have some time ! Thanks for your patience Heather and Burt.

    Admin login retrieval

    Do I need to remove the install dir and set the includes/configure.php to read only, even when I might want / need to reinstall ? This is just a test site and not the final domain location.

    Admin login retrieval

    All I had to do was delete the admin from the database then go back to the admin login and it asks to create a new one. It was that simple. It was a totally new, clean install without any users or items. Re. the lost admin password retrieval link : The "youradmin/.htpasswd_oscommerce" didnt exist. The "youradmin/.htaccess" didn't have the required lines to delete.
  19. Old versions from hosting sites Is there an OsCommerce policy behind web hosts offering the old version of OsCommerce to their customers or just slackness on the part of the web hosts ? Ideally the Phoenix version would be available. Thanks Nigel

    Old versions from hosting sites

    I'll tell them now, thanks.

    Old versions from hosting sites

    Yes, I saw that on another thread here. Annoyingly my hosts don't, they only have the archaic version. I use them for reseller facilities, not that I sell anything.
  22. No payment option for checkout. Hello. Is there a setting or an option to allow customers to place orders but not require a payment ? We don't want a zero value option, we simply charge and invoice current trade customers via other means with invoicing outside of the site, not payment at time of order. We use Quickbooks Desktop for our invoicing. I have tried removing various options but it seems too messy. I'm currently using the Installed Version: osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.4.1 which is available from my web host. Main requirements are UK only with sterling currency. Any guidance would be welcome. Thanks

    No payment option for checkout.

    Thanks for the quick reply burt. It does look very dated but it was just a test to see if I could achieve something near to our requirements. I had narrowed it down to "Cash On Delivery". Seems I was on the right track. I will update to the new version.
