I used OsCommerce for my website back around 2003 and I had it all installed with add ons and it worked fine. It no longer exists now.

I'm now trying to set up a new website on Ionos hosting, but I can't get to the install page.

I've uploaded the files using ftp, changed permissions for the configure files and set up a database.

When I type my domain in, I'm just getting a landing page from Ionos saying the domain has been registered, but no install page.

Is this landing page stopping my install? Or is there something else I need to do?


I originally tried using their set up, but it was the old (current) version of Oscommerce and threw up loads of errors that said deprecate in them.

I deleted everything and did it myself using the Phoenix version.

There is probably an extra index.html file there with the landing page in it.

For a new install or if your store isn't mobile-friendly, get the community-supported responsive osCommerce (Phoenix).

If the landing page is stopping the install, you could work around it by adding either /index.php or /install/install.php to the URL.  If you are going to https://www.example.com/ -- try https://www.example.com/index.php or https://www.example.com/install/install.php instead. 

If you have a catalog folder inside your web root, try /catalog/, /catalog/index.php, etc. 

Always back up before making changes.

I've tried those, but nothing.

I even just tried uploading a simple html page to the root directory and pointing straight to them. Still the landing page.

I feel like I'm missing something really basic here, but I can't find the page to delete it.
