connecting to database issues

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I have just asked my hosting company to set up a dev site that they have cloned my existing website and databases onto...

when I go to the oscommerce section of the website - the site is being populated from the database, but when i try to log in as a customer it simply reloads the home page without logging me in or giving me an error.

I created a new customer - which is now on the database - but after I created it it gave me the 'congratulations' page but the customer was still not logged in...

I have checked through the config files and I think these are all in order, is there something else I might be missing to get this working?

the admin side is not loading either - after filling in the login info (on the popup not on the login page) if gives me a 500 Internal Server Error.

any help would be appreciated.

ok the admin issue was due to .htaccess not being updated ... and I can access the customers from there but the front of house is still having the same issues

Is your configure.php file pointing to the old database or the new database?  Are you using MySQL or file sessions?  Are your cookie settings for the dev location? 


Always back up before making changes.
