Recommended Posts

it is definately on my target list - i keep scratching my head trying to think what could possibly be causing this error...

 

which version to do you have installed now - i will install it locally and see if i can recreate the error on my end as all of the 'obvious' things don't seem to be the problem. :? :? :? 8)

unless you have a specific reason for using it I would recommend using the MS1 release since the CVS versions are works in progress and are prone to potential errors as things get worked out...

Hey Jeff, Based on the fact that you couldn't recreate the problem, I'm left to assume that this is an issue particular to my machine. The problems that I'm experiencing don't actually stop me from using the software... they're more of an inconvenience. The only screen that's not working at all is the "products attributes" screen... and since I don't have any reason to use this I'm not hurting enough to try yet another reinstallation.

 

One question that I've posed now a couple of times that hasn't been answered is... how do you install a new snapshot over an existing one without overwriting all the mods? Do you just copy the source files over-top of the ones in existence... or do you have to do a complete reinstallation?

if you are familiar with the unix diff command, that is generally the method used - you should subscribe to the cvs list and this way you will receive via email any updates to the cvs snapshot as they are made and committed to it

 

there should be something on wiki.oscommerce.com/top regarding updating cvs updates or you can go to sourceforge.net and get more info on doing it

Well, I STILL don't know what glitch is causing my problem, but I have been able to cheat my way around by modifying the /admin/includes/configure.php file as follows (and I know this isn't exactly the best way to handle this... but HEY... it worked).
