  1. There is no such folder /ect/mail Should I create it? There is a folder /mail but it doesnt contain /aliases Thanks, - Gian
  2. Okay, well let me stress as well that i'm not an expert 8) It sounds like your categories file is trying to find out what the hell tep_get_products_head_title_tag actually means. Search your PC for some file containing tep_get_products_head_title_tag. In that file (which you probably missed while installing) it should give you a code to paste into a file (most likely english.php). If worse comes to worse, email the author. Good luck! - Gian
  3. I have no clue what my admin is saying, but this is his reply: Hello, The crux of the issue here is to parse the email contents into a database. Please do create the necessary email IDs as suggested in the documentation and tell us which all email addresses are to be parsed into the db. By email alias we mean, transferring all the mails coming to a particular email address to another email address. This particular case is slightly different where you have to create database called osc_mail2db and a php program called osc_mail2db.php. Please ensure if all the steps have been fulfilled and do get back to us with all the necessary facts. Thank you, Adith _________________________________ This was my first message: Hi, I'm using osCommerce, and i'm trying to install an add-on for it. I think I need my hosting admin to make some mail aliases. I dont understand this fully, but I know this is a peice of cake to your technical staff. Many people are having problems with this, and the author of the add-on replied with this:< I will mention three types of servers: 1) Localhost (Linux. Windows probably needs a third party application). 2) Shared Server (little control over the server) 3) Dedicated Server (some control over the server) 1) It's more than likely you have no idea what to do otherwise you would not be reading up to this page on this thread (smile, sooner or later you will get it working) The most important thing to do is to get mails working with your localhost server. I have Gentoo Linux installed, the appropriate documentation for this can be found here: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/desktop.xml#doc_chap6 If your server documentation is still alien to you, the only suggestion I have is to test this on the shared/dedicated server and let the server administrator take care of it for you. 2) Ask your server administrator! Tell them you need a mail alias entry to parse a script - provide the examples given in the contribution installation text. If your server administrator does not know or has to do research on it, I'd suggest to move to another server hosting company. Hey, this is e-commerce, it should be taken seriously - your server administrator should have the know-how for their own servers! 3) A combination of 1) and 2). ## I hope that helps somewhat - I am not a unix mail guru so I cannot provide more tips. ## The contribution will also work without a mail alias entry, but then incoming emails cannot be tracked and stored in the database. I think the Contact Us page provided needs to be updated in this case as it needs to store the submited information directly in the database instead of emailing it to the mail alias entry (which would not exist). _________________ Harald Ponce de Leon>> It said to look in the documentation for examples, heres the document concerning mail aliases:<<##### Mail Alias Entry (Sendmail Example) ##### In order to insert incoming emails into the database, a mail alias entry is needed to pass the email content to the osc_mail2db.php script. Each department the helpdesk has should have its own email address. Each address should be entered in the mail aliases file. An example mail alias entry for a "sales" department (email = sales@server.com) is: sales: a_backup@email_address.com, "|/path/to/php -q /path/to/osc_mail2db.php config=/path/to/admin/includes/configure.php" The mail aliases file may exist in /etc/mail/aliases - when it has been modified the linux command "newaliases" needs to be executed. The backup email address part should be a real email address which emails are forwarded to. This is a backup incase the php script fails. It is important to use the Administration Tool configuration file and not the Catalog configuration file, as access is needed to the mime_decode.php class via the DIR_FS_ADMIN parameter. Qmail Example (.qmail-sales) ---------------------------------- "|/path/to/php -q /path/to/osc_mail2db.php config=/path/to/admin/includes/configure.php" Proc Mail Example --------------------- :0 * (^To:|^CC:|^Cc:) .*sales@server.com "|/path/to/php -q /path/to/osc_mail2db.php config=/path/to/admin/includes/configure.php" ##### TODO Suggestions ##### Store file attachments on the server and grant acess to the files via the Helpdesk frontend. [This is one reason to currently use a backup email address as noted above incase a customer sends an email with a file attachment] The mime_decode.php class is able to extract file attachments from an email.>> Some people did get it to work by installing Procmail. I'm just using gian@advancedvitamin.com to send out emails. Do you have any idea how to do this? If so can you do it? Or explain how I can? Thank you very much, - Gian Spicuzza ------------------------------------------- What should I reply to him? What necessary facts does he need? Thanks, - Gian

    OrderCheck v1.1 released

  6. Yes, its working fine now except for this: When I add a new product and click Enlarge Image, this error shows: 1054 - Unknown column 'p.products_bimage' in 'field list' select pd.products_name, p.products_image, p.products_bimage from products p left join products_description pd on p.products_id = pd.products_id where p.products_id = '32' and pd.language_id = '1' [TEP STOP] This happened recently after I installed your contribution. Do you know what this error means? Thank you, - Gian
  7. The first error shows up on your test site, but not the second. The second error states Object Expected, and yet, I do not have any type of payment options set up currently. Could that be the cause of the second error? I shall set up something quickly and test it out. Thanks, - Gian
  8. Could this just be a problem w/ my OS? I recieved the 2nd error on amazon.com, so may it just be my XP? Thanks, - Gian
  9. Thanks Barry for the help, I thought I had it down packed but when I tested it, I had debugging errors, please refer to the image: Any ideas what might have caused these? Or is just my computer maybe? Thank you, - Gian
  10. Once again Linda saves the day... thanks! :D
  11. I'm trying to install the quantity control mod 5.1. but im getting the following error: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare tep_get_free_shipper() (previously declared in /home/spicuzza/public_html/catalog/includes/functions/webmakers_added_functions.php:56) in /home/spicuzza/public_html/catalog/includes/functions/webmakers_added_functions.php on line 56 I did a search and only webmakers_added_functions.php (in catalog) and webmakers_added_functions.php (in admin) have function tep_get_free_shipper. Any suggestions? Thanks - Gian
  12. I still cannot find /catalog/includes/modules/langauges/english/login.php And I've downloaded the new fix from: http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,355 Also, what file should I edit for: INSERT INTO configuration_group VALUES (40, 'Accounts', 'Configuration of Account settings', 40, 1); INSERT INTO configuration VALUES ('', 'Purchase Without Account', 'PWA_ON', 'true', 'Allow Customers to purchase without an account', 40, 1, '2003-04-08 13:07:44', '2003-04-08 12:10:51', NULL, 'tep_cfg_select_option(array('true', 'false'),'); Thanks, - Gian

    cool menu help

  14. Looks awsome, but I have a few questions. I apologize if these are repeats. 1 Backing up files.. is that mean to make copies of every file? Or is there a simpler way in cPanel or something similair? 2 I undestand how I must add some lines of text to php files (as it is explained in your installation.txt) but I do not understand how to use the database changes, where should I input these functions? Thanks again and I apologize if these questions are repeats. - Gian
