Good question... I dunno what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..
I just had Melinda and Robert tell me the current snapshot runs without an issue on their 4.3.1.
Melinda even did a fresh install of the current snapshot without a code change and no problems..
Hopefully she can peek at this and perhaps see something that is different from her settings that might shed some light on it...
I'm glad you replied. Funny thing is the ONLY thing they can get at my store is $0.00 product using your way cool free shipping mod. ;-).
But I won't make much money like that..
I just downloaded the 4/17/03 CSV and will give it a go in the test area..
There may be 1 bug left in 04-17-2003 of any consequence ....
Set the Company Minimum to 0 if the create account or any of the address things appear to loop and the Company field is sitting there open and staring at you ... :shock:.
I have not tested if this was fixed yet. 8)..
The 4/17/03 installed with no issues....
It would then lead me to believe that the Loaded 5 or other MANY mods I added are the issue. Funny they work on PHP 4.2 but not 4.3..
Well, a pot of coffee and a beyond compare session are in order tonight...
The other issue is you may have tripped over a bug that recreating your whos_online table fixed due to a server upgrade issue..
I have found many on 4.3.1 had to do recreate the table where people on 4.2.x just needed to fix the errors the scripts did on the updates of the servers over the last 7 to 10 days...
That meant ... on your broken 4.3.1 shop kill your whos_online table in the database and create it fresh ... btw..
Thanks for your tips Linda, I had emptied that table as well as about a gazillion other things..
Here was the problem, I began with a fresh loaded 5 install, used with my database to work, with and began adding the mods and add ons one at a time..
All went well until I added the.
Mod. The file that you need to replace at catalog/includes/modules/shipping/usps.php is the culprit..
After hours to find that, the rest was easy. I simply replaced the original usps.php file from the Loaded 5 distribution in my original modded stores with and all was fine, albeit without the advantages of the USPS Methods mod...
I have emailed the authors of that mod and suspect they will look at it..
I hope that by concluding this thread it helps any others that face this issue. It's one thing to break your store by adding mods and stupidity, (been there, done that) but when the stuff like PHP, Apache, mySql and that kind of stuff gets changed and your store breaks it kind of freaks you out..
I owe an apology to the OSC team, while the issue is not with the core OSC as I might have sounded like, it is an issue for some of the mod writers. But hey, that's the thing with technology, you get it done, it's obsolete..
Thanks for the suggestions Linda, you are a huge benefit to the OSC community!..
I running without problems on PHP 4.3.1 but I see your build is pretty generic, for example zend is not enabled, trans-sid, or even openssl. I've got close to 2 dozen mods running on a MS1 site. I think you're going to need a build with more extensions to take all the mods...
Wel David, to teel the truth I don't know what a zend is or if I even need one! 8).
However, from the Server Information in OSC tools I see "PHP Version: 4.3.1 (Zend: 1.3.0)" So I suppose this means I have Send, whatever that is..
I am so clueless to PHP/Linux OS/mySql it is amazing I was able to put together a shop..
Then you should give a big thanks to all people involved here, the TEAM members & the DIE HARD Believers who reply to all post EVERY DAY for FREE..
They (the TEAM) still like donations.
And Harald would be VERY pleased too with positive threads about his project..
Thankful I am David. Both to the Core Team, those with the talents to code and the Believers that endlessly help others..
This if the best cart out there IMHO and the community is fantastic. I have made donations along the way and have more going out as we speak. 8).
I try to give back but my knowledge of the code is pathetic really, it is all like magic to me! I did post my first Tip that might be useful tonight, although everyone but me probably knew they could do that..
Have a grand Holiday...
Try disabling the USPS shipping module. I believe thats what is causing the error. It worked for me..
Edit: Sorry I just realized this is a very old topic. But I feel it might be helpful to others since I just came across this problem using CRE6..

I had my host move me to a new server/new plan..
My shops (currently MS1 loaded 5) have bee running great on a server with PHP 4.2 for a year. The new server is running PHP 4.3.1 and now I have problems..
The store shows products well but when it comes to checkout no joy..
The errors are;.
Warning: feof(): supplied resource is not a valid stream resource in /home/artesano/public_html/catalog/includes/classes/http_client.php on line 385.
Warning: fgets(): supplied resource is not a valid stream resource in /home/artesano/public_html/catalog/includes/classes/http_client.php on line 386.
Please feel free to see this at.
Using username: / password: testing.
The issue affects the admin side too with errors:.
Warning: fopen(temp.csv) [function.fopen]: failed to create stream: Permission denied in /home/puretex/public_html/admin/stats_monthly_sales.php on line 431.
Warning: fwrite(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/puretex/public_html/admin/stats_monthly_sales.php on line 432.
Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/puretex/public_html/admin/stats_monthly_sales.php on line 433.
What I know so far:.
Safe Mode is.
Register globals is turned.
4.3.1 (Zend: 1.3.0).
Phpinfo() Configure Area reads:.
Registered PHP Streams php, http, ftp, compress.zlib.
Any help would be great, I have spent the better part of the day on this while taking phone orders from clients that can't order..
And yes, I have followed the advice in my sig, searched all areas including my host and had my host recomplie PHP..
Well, after much searching, gnashing of teeth, trying this & that, and lost sales, I am going to have my accounts moved back to my old server with PHP 4.2..
I have tried the fixes in the following posts;.
Osc and PHP 4.3.1.
Osc and PHP 4.3.1.
PHP 4.3.0 and GV problems.
Provider graded up to PhP version 4.3.0].
Serious issues with PHP v4.3.0.
Upgraded to PHP 4.3.1 and osCommerce is having problems....
BTW, I dare you to find any of these Topics via the PHPBB search engine by the most common central words to this issue. They do not come up either due to the relevant words being in the title, too common by PHPbb standards or whatever..
I understand that Harald has no issue with PHP 4.3.X and OSC, good on him. But this REALLY should be addressed, added to Wiki, added to the FAQ, made a sticky, whatever. The fact that it took me well over seven hours just to find subjects that others did have issue with the PHP 4.3 upgrades is just wrong..
As ISP's add new servers, as they upgrade the OS & addons to existing servers, PHP 4.3.X will be more and more common and there is an issue for most of us with the current build of OSC..
Part of the issues after making the changes found in the above links were;.
Being logged out after each click, stuff disappearing in the cart, long page load times..
I am sure that the fact that this is a Ian's loaded 5 install with many other add-ons has helped to hinder the problem. Just to be sure, I tried a current CSV and MS1 install in a test directory. Neither would work correctly..
Mind you, my old sites can be accessed via the ip and work just dandy still..
I hope the core team knows that this will soon be a huge issue for them..
