I would recommend deleting it and installing a later version, at least 2.3.1 and preferably 2.3.3 which has htaccess integrated to the admin sign in.

 

Failing that read and implement this.

@@geoffreywalton thanks i might just change the folder name for a start. the other problem i`m encountering is with the email server. Everytime I register a new customer what I get is this

 

Warning: mail() [function.mail]: Failed to connect to mailserver at "localhost" port 25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini or use ini_set() inC:\AppServ\www\catalog\includes\classes\email.php on line 520

 

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at C:\AppServ\www\catalog\includes\classes\email.php:520) inC:\AppServ\www\catalog\includes\functions\general.php on line 33

 

I have changed the setting in PHP.INI and put the mail server to

 

smtp.orangehome.co.uk [my isp is orange]

 

& send mail from my orange email address. which is surname@surnamefirstname2.orangehome.co.uk

on admin panel my options are

 

E-Mail Transport Method smtp icon_arrow_right.gif E-Mail Linefeeds LF icon_info.gif Use MIME HTML When Sending Emails false icon_info.gif Verify E-Mail Addresses Through DNS false icon_info.gif Send E-Mails true

 

Whenever I register someone it gives me the error i have pasted above but it registers the user. any ideas what I could do ?

Your hast probably has anti-spam measures in place that will prevent you from sending email through their server from outside their data center. Ask them if there is a way to make this work.

 

As @@geoffreywalton said, you are playing with a very old, obsolete version of osCommerce. Why are you doing this? This old version is much more difficult to work with, and you won't find as much support here as you will for current versions. If your purpose is to build a working store, delete that old code and download the current version from this site.

 

Regards

Jim
