!!!HOT ALERT!!! Is iPage.com Stealing Names from its OWN Customers?

First off, !!!HOT ALERT!!! Is iPage.com Stealing Names from it's OWN Customers? Thanks in advance for any answer. Another question... Hi again everybody,.

Second problem I've discovered, as I attempt to migrate an osCommerce installation from one machine to another....

I noticed that many of the icons in the user interface were not visible. I tried a direct URL access to one of the images:.

Http://<server>/includes/languages/english/images/buttons/button_quick_find.gif.

This resulted in an "Internal Server Error" error. Same thing if I try to access *any* file within includes/ (e.g. one of the .php files). Apparently apache is choking on the .htaccess file in this directory. (If I remove the .htaccess file, everything's fine.).

Any ideas how to resolve this?.

Thanks again in advance..

Matt..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..

Hello again Matt,.

Try checking your permission settings maybe make the languages/english/images/ directory sub directories and files chmod 777 all rights to all things or alter the .htaccess file.

And as John says recheck the configure.php files paths.

JOHN.

He is moving from a local mac machine to linux server.

Ok, by moving from a local to a linux server, you may need to recreate your htaccess files, especially if the path is different. open your .htaccess file and see where it is pointing to, user name, and where the password was created..

You probably have different settings, is why when you delete the file it works fine...

Comment #3

I'm guessing this isn't related to anything regarding the osCommerce application configuration (since the iPage site and admin are functionally working). The problem, I believe, is that the .htaccess file isn't working. I get the following errors in the apache log:.

.htaccess: order not allowed here.

The contents of the .htaccess file here are:.

<Files *.php>.

Order deny,allow.

Allow from all.

</Files>.

If I comment out the two directives "order" and "allow", I can then access .php files under the include/ directory (as I should). If I then uncomment *either* of the two directives, and try to direct access files under include/, then I once again get the internall server errors..

Hmmm. :-(..

Comment #4

Correction: that should have read:.

<Files *.php>.

Order deny,allow.

Deny from all.

</Files>.

(deny, instead of allow, from all)..

Comment #5

If you read your statement, you are denying access from everyone. what folder are you trying to protect?.

Htaccess for directory control, to allow/prevent others in via password looks like this:.

AuthUserFile /etc/.htpasswd.

AuthGroupFile /dev/null.

AuthName "Bill's Restaurant".

AuthType Basic.

<Limit GET>.

Require user William.

</Limit>.

This is just an example, dont use it, as it needs to be set based upon your server configuration...

Comment #6

Ok so we are all heading for the .htaccess file being the issue..

JOHN.

Can he not also create.

<Files *.gif>.

Order Deny,Allow.

Allow from all.

</Files>.

The standard includes .htaccess has.

<Files *.php>.

Order Deny,Allow.

Deny from all.

</Files>..

Comment #7

(Problem Solved).

John,.

This is one of the .htaccess files that is delivered with a default installation of osCommerce:.

[root]/includes/.htaccess.

As I was about to paste the contents of this file into this forum reply, I noticed the following:.

#<Directory "/usr/local/apache/htdocs">.

# AllowOverride Limit.

#</Directory>.

That was the problem. I didn't have that Directory directive included in my VirtualHost definition. Arg. (And for some reason, this worked on my OS X box.).

Thanks again...

Sounds like you have a few things kind of messed up. did you modify your configure.php files to reflect the move? is this done on localhost or what / where are you moving from and what / where to?..
