completely hopeless 

Hi Lorraine,

When I click on your link, I see a page of your main site. It means that the rules of YOUR website redirect all pages from shopBlank folder back to your website.

You can check it by this test:

1. Temporary rename .htaccess to .htaccess_temp in public_html directory (some functions of your main site may not work while you do this test)

2. Check access to https://qiessence.co.uk/shopBlank/

3. Rename back .htaccess_temp to .htaccess to restore original state.

Please note I have discussed this with the host they have suggested I create a new folder and then assign a domain to it. 
 

I have tried installing directly to the root with no changes etc. 

I have removed the shopBlank folder completely.

I was hoping someone with IONOS could shed light on why the installation doesn’t work. The old OSC worked perfectly every time. 
 

I don’t know what is wrong? I’ve never had this problem before, surely it should just install as before? 
 
I really don’t know what to do. There doesn’t seem to be any help I can use.

Looking at my configure file in admin it seems no data has been written in it’s still the default …

I really don’t know why this is happening? How do I move forward?

Could you share links to these new sites? Or send it to PM? Or attach a screenshot at least. It is hard to tell what happened if you do not provide problem details.

I have worked through multiple installations today either no installation is possible from the directory I choose or the exact same problems occur that I flagged in the previous link above (now deleted). I get no errors throughout… 

When I press Complete Installation it goes to the splash screen. Pressing Admin or going deeper on any splash screen just gives a not found page.

Looking at the admin/includes/configure file shows it hasn’t been written to just default settings not the details I entered. 
 

I have no idea why? I can’t resolve it or post any errors because there aren’t any.

 

I’ve never had this happen before, old OSC installs normally.

Complete failure

Lorraine, would you be willing to have a screen sharing session, during which we could try to resolve the issue? 

Happy to do Google meet or zoom this week.

This is what I had to follow to get OSCOMMERCE  to work on my UBUNTU Server 22.04 running a LAMP server!

On the Splpah window everything would show up and all work except for the ADMIN page.

Whenever I clicked on or even entered the ADMIN into the address bar it would always throw a 404 error.

Make sure that you Enable .htaccess on Apache 2 Linux Server

you can find the directions at the link shown below and now everything even ADMIN LOGIN appears to be working correctly!
