Good question... I dunno what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an useful answer. You should email the people at iContact as they probably know..
Yeah, when I changed that it says, "Unable to connect to the database". Yeah, I know I'm doing something completely wrong when setting up the database. I'm doing it through Yahoo, which sucks, but it's what I have to do..
Anyways, if you think that there is anything more that you can help me with, that would be great. Either way, thank you for the response...
You have to set up a blank database first, before you start the install. You'll also need to know from Yahoo what the database server address is with their hosting..
Commisserations on choosing Yahoo by the way!.
Hahaha, yeah. Yahoo! definitely was not my choice. lol. I've worked with them in the past and had nothing but difficulties with them. But whatever, it's what I have to work with right now..
Awesome, I'll just have to create a new database and then see what I can do from there. Thank you VERY much for all of your help...
I have seen this question posted before, with answers, and have asked about it myself as well. I tried setting up a local host and could never get around the "register globals" issue, so I finally gave up and had osC installed on my hosting site. It gave me the same issue there, but a service request got it fixed right away. Now I'm back to wanting to install on a local host so I can start over if I need to - and I CANNOT find the correct php.ini to change. I found several php.ini files on my computer, opened them up and made the change one by one and it had absolutely no effect. I'm using EasyPHP and I restarted it, even tried restarting my computer, and no luck.
The error message I get says: "Server Requirement Error: register_globals is disabled in your PHP configuration. This can be enabled in your php.ini configuration file or in the .htaccess file in your catalog directory." Am I looking for the php.ini file in EasyPHP or in the uninstalled osC files, which I extracted into the www file in EasyPHP? I feel like a total dunce, but I've tried everything I can think of to change it so I can get osC installed and it never works. If you could tell me the exact name of the file, or which php.ini I'm looking for it would help. I hope..
Thanks in advance,.
The Register Globals Patch Files (link below my name) are complete and include the necessary changes to the 'install' folder..
Have you gotten any further with this problem? I've got the same setup and have encountered the same problem. I'''ve done that was suggested in the previous posts but nothing is working so far. I just don'''t have enough linux/php/apache knowhow to solve this..
The post you referred to was a problem with permissions. There are thousands of posts on this forum to do with permissions. To search the forum better use the search function in the Google Toolbar and select 'Current Site' for your search..
I need major help.
I uploaded everthing to the root directory and changed permissions to 777 still when I goto.
Im reciving a "page not found error".
I have 2 domains and installing this on a web server not a local copy..
According to the web hosting they are using php 4..
My past experience tells me that although you believe you uploaded everything to the 'root' directory that you have in fact uploaded it somewhere else..
Please check with your hosts as to what is your 'root' directory, and then FTP to your root and make sure the files/folders are located there..
Found out that turning on php takes longer than I was told becasue this morning I did nothing and it worked fine. Now to get that cust log-in working..
Thanks for your time on posting all this information..
I am totaly new to OS Comm and have followed the steps you have stated, and I get this message "You are not authorized to view this page".
Could you please help me have have installed os commerce to my iContact site www.cyclone.me.uk.
Please please help ..
Thanks in Advance.
Hi, I can't even locate your domain on the internet, and I've tried all permutations:.
Please make sure that (in your 123-Reg account) your domain is pointed to the correct name servers for your hosting account. Currently your domain is pointed to:.
If that is the correct address, then fine, but make sure that you did not add any ip addresses after the dns addresses..
I'm new to OS Commerce and I seem to be having a strange problem.
I uploaded the files and ran the install. I walked through all the steps and the installer said that it could connect to my database. When I checked the database file it was in fact populated with the sample info..
Once the install finishes, and I go to my url to view the shop, it goes back to the installation menu. If I try going to mysite.com/admin, I get an error "Cannot connect to the database"..
One of the steps is to delete the install folder once the install is complete..
Sounds like the install wrote to the includes/configure.php file, but not to the admin/includes/configure.php file..
Is the admin configure.php file fairly easy to modify by hand or should I delete everything and reinstall?..
Most, if not all, of the information you need to be able to add the info to the admin/includes/configure.php file you'll find in the includes/configure.php file..
Thanks for your time in helping me with this big problem, I have now cancelled my hosting with hosting365 and have gone with a cheaper hosting company, who install os commerce onto my hosting space fro free within the price of the hosting, and as you cany see at.
It works great..
But I am very greatful to all who helped me, and I am sorry if I was rude to any1 but it was very hard for some1 to install straight from scrach..
But I would like some help, how do I put my own shop logo at the top of the screen, where the os commerce logo is?.

You've obviously figured out the answer to that one as your logo is now on your site..
