Installed, now what...?

Recommended Posts

Freshly installed and, as best as I can tell but I have a few questions:

1) Was there some kind of detailed install instructions I just could not find? I mean, the process walks you through the basics, and that's cool, but I know there is stuff I should be doing, security wise.

2) Admin tools are telling me I need to change the permissions on configure.php, but it's not telling me what I need to change them to.

3) Are there directions that show me how to get HTTPS up and running.

I'll do my best to refrain from stupid question bombardment but, sometime, asking the search feature the right question can be problematic.

Thank you in advance.

Ok, brand new, fresh install, I have touched pretty much nothing.

On my index page I have this error:

Notice: Undefined index: customer in /homepages/25/d238487425/htdocs/includes/modules/navbar/nb_account.php on line 22

When I go to Admin > Modules > Navbar > Install Modules I get a huge list of errors like this:

Notice: Trying to access array offset on value of type null in /homepages/25/d238487425/htdocs/admin/modules.php on line 202

Notice: Trying to access array offset on value of type null in /homepages/25/d238487425/htdocs/admin/modules.php on line 203

 

Help?

The most likely to work setting is 444 (read only).  But 644, 640, or 400 might work.  This depends on how your host is set up.

This is almost all outside osCommerce.  Ask your host how to enable SSL.  Again, that depends on how your host is set up.  This may be as simple as flipping a switch or it may be complicated. 

With SSL enabled, CE Phoenix will automatically configure your store if you run the install procedure from the https URL.  I.e. if your store is https://www.example.com/ then going to https://www.example.com/install/install.php should handle the configuration for you.  Note that this will clear out any changes you already made to the database.  It's also possible to enable SSL by manually editing the two configure.php files to replace http: with https: if you don't want to reset your store.  In either case, you need to have the SSL working on the domain before you try to configure CE Phoenix. 

Those notices will be gone in the next version.  If they are really bothering you, in the configure.php files change the error_reporting(E_ALL) to

error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE);

Or simply set display_errors to false.  Your host should offer a way for you to do this.  It's PHP configuration.  Again, the exact method is going to be different from host to host. 


Always back up before making changes.
