Ye, although you might want to make sure and wait for another person to confirm my answer as I am not very confident. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the iPage guys because they can give you help better...
I think I know what your saying but I'm confused about what goes where, tell me if I'm correct:.
Vhost=my iPage site name?.
Username= the username I log onto the iPage site with(cpanel login name).
I know this is probably easy stuff but I'm just not sure.
Go to the admin/tools/server info link and then search for document_root (will be quite a ways down), then post that here. we can figure it out from there...
Ok, this is what I got + the basic server info..and thanks.
Server Host: escape.websitewelcome.com (188.8.131.52).
Database Host: localhost (127.0.0.1).
Server OS: Linux 2.4.26-grsecvx.
Database: MySQL 4.0.20-standard.
Server Date: 09/18/2004 17:02:56.
Datebase Date: 09/18/2004 17:02:56..
Create a tmp directory at /home/newyork.
Thus it will read /home/newyork/tmp and make it 777, then in the admin/configuration/logging and sessions put that path there..
Below is what I see when I log into cpanel, is / the same as /home?.
/ (Current Folder).
Create New Folder.
Create New File.
.contactemail 0 k 600.
.contactsavetime 0 k 644.
.lastlogin 0 k 600.
.mailboxlist 0 k 644.
.spamkey 0 k 600.
Backup-9.17.2004_02-08-12_newyork.tar.gz 13830 k 600..
Change the properties on tmp to 777 and then add the path I gave you into the admin section of the store..
Ok, I changed the pointer to /home/newyork/temp and I changed the permissions to 777 and it still does the same thing...
If you read above, I stated tmp you have no temp in /home/newyork..
Decide whether you are using "temp" or "tmp" and make sure you have the same name stipulated in your configure file as what the directory is named on your server..
Also clear your browser cache, then see what you get...
It was tmp I just put temp in the post. It looks like after I went to admin/maunf and updated it it cleared itself out..
Thank you very much, that freaked me out..
Hmmm...maybe a dedicated server is in my future?..
No need for a dedicated aerver. But if you enable the "Use Cache" feature, you have to make sure that the cache directory is not shared, which is what Mibble was trying to help you do. The other solution is to just set Use Cache to "false"...
Somehow, someone has managed to fill my manufactuers list with their information, even if I look in the admin it only shows my manufactuers..
Has anybody seen this before?.
Most likely you are hosted on a server which has another oscommerce store or more being hosted..
In your admin/configuration/logging and /sessions you will find a pointer to a directory named /tmp.
What you need to do is place that inside your document root area, ie if your iPage site is at /home/vhost/username/public_html then place the tmp at /home/vhost/username/tmp.
Make the properties 777..
