Problem resolved.

 

I downloaded a template version 2.1 and it worked. There was a conflict with the php and MySQL settings on my server with the 2.2 template.

Hi, I'm totaly new at this, but I usualy can find what I am looking for just by reading throught the forum...

 

Now I cant find any answer to my problem so Im asking it here:

 

In Step 1: Database Server

 

When I try to connect to the database server I get this error :

 

Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)

 

I've been searching for hours now and I cant find nothing.

 

What's the problem, and how I can resolve it ??

 

Thanks

That usually means that MySQL is not running at all.

Where can I see if MySQL is running or not ??

And how can I make it running ??

I'm sorry but this thread is only about installing osCommerce. It assumes that your web server is actually up and running.

Having a web page online, if it's an HTML page or a PHP page with no database queries, doesn't mean you have MySQL running.

 

Try accessing phpMyAdmin. If you can't access phpMyAdmin then MySQL is not running.

Yes I was able to access phpMyAdmin but now it not a problem anymore... I just cancel my account with IPOWER which seems to be not to friendly with oscommerce and I will try with a new host and see if I will end up with the same problem again...

 

Do you have a good web server to suggest me to run oscommerce??

 

Thank you very much for your help...

 

See you soon with probably other question and problems (not so soon I wish)

This is the Quick Install Guide, which deals with the basic installation of osCommerce and nothing more.

I am currently having the exact same errors as ZZ Johan, above and also getting:

"Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: /misc/29/000/202/174/3/user/web/maridollshop.com/catalog/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file."

 

Now, I'm quite new to this system and have no idea what to do with this. I have found answers to people asking the same question but the answers are telling you to do something that I have no idea how to do! I have no idea how I'm supposed to "Reset the permissions on catalog/includes/configure.php to 644" for example. I appreciate being told what I need to do but how do I actually do it? I have tried going into the configuration file, but where are these things to reset? I created a tmp folder but what do I do with it? If someone can please help me, and actually just give me a quick explination of how to do what will actually solve the problem I would greatly appreciate it! I run a forum and have used databases before, but it was never as confusing as I find this is... help!

For some reason, it won't let me edit my previous post. Just needed to add that all of the installation instructions, including what was included when I downloaded everything, didn't match what I was seeing on my screen. I didn't have the same options at all. Unsure why this is..

Hi Guys

 

Sorry if this is the wrong forum. A bit desperate. I have a site almost complete using OS commerce - stock photos uploaded etc etc. I recently purchased an SSL certificate for www.apotypomata.com (my domain, store is /catalog) However...

 

I can't find a way of pointing OS commerce at the SSL certificate when it needs it (through the admin login). If I enter https://www.apotypomata.com/catalog I get a message on my browser saying there are certificate errors.

 

To further complicate matters, oscommerce defaults to http://apotypomata.com/catalog which means that the SSL Certificate does not correspond (since it has the www prefix- probably my bad, there).

 

What I want to be able to do is tell oscommerce where the certificate is and get it to use the appropriate area of my host when processing data from customers.

 

All suggestions gratefully appreciated!

I hope you are able to help me with this issue.

 

I am able to login to the admin side of OS Commerce.

 

But when I create a new user on the catalog side I am unable to login as that user. I have checked the database and the user is created.

 

When I try to login in I do not get an error stating the name and password do not match, it passes as though the login took. But the next page displayed is Welcome ,Guest!

 

I am using php v.4.3.4 and it is install on a Windows 2000 IIS server for a local intranet

 

Below is a copy of my configure.php

 

<?php

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://gp-intranet');

define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'http://gp-intranet');

define('ENABLE_SSL', false);

...a Windows 2000 IIS server for a local intranet...

 

few people would attempt to install osc in such an enviroment. your 'DIR_FS_CATALOG' is different from what shows in the error.

It means that your Admin / includes / configure.php was not written to

You will need to go and do this manually or try the install again

okay here's a tip for the newbees using preinstalled OSC. There are 2 places in catalog folder to be updated yes believe it 2 x configure.php

 

One is in

 

../catalog/includes/

 

and the other is in

 

../catalog/includes/local/

 

Typically only one has the database paswords etc. setup and this needs to be enabled i.e. set to 1 or true

 

Check the application_top file and find the SLL ? NONSLL if query and make sure the query matches the one you define in the config file(s).

 

It should work if not chmod the config files to 755 (xxx, x--, xxx)
