I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..
Thank you. I tried to follow the directions in the documentation. How do I fix it so that it works correctly?..
Do you have an index file in your root folder (either html or php)?..
Let's do this..
Copy/paste the text in the CODE box into Notepad..
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">.
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1">.
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0" height="100%">.
<font size="7">Shop Offline awaiting launch.</font></div>.
Save it as.
Upload it into the root (/) folder on your site..
I think you get the error because the root folder has no index file...
Thank you, I've done that. Everything still appears to look the same. What else am I doing wrong?..
If there is a .htaccess file in the root folder, rename it to text.htaccess.
If not, contact your host for support...
I only see a .htaccess file under /public/catalog/includes. Does this mean that I need to ask my host for help? Thank you...
OK, I deleted everything and then installed again a different way. It's working much better now. The only thing is that I can't get rid of the pink error message at the top even though I have set the right user permissions on the file. That will be my next thing to figure out...
FTP usually won't work at this..
You should login to your Web Host account and use the Control Panel, NOT OSCOMMERCE!.
Try file permissions in this order until the pink warning disappears:.
Be aware that permissions less than.
Make the file "read only" even to you and you'll need to change them to 644 before you can make any edits to the file in the future...
Thank you, I am still trying to work through this. Even setting the permissions to 400 from the File Manager in my Web Host account does not make the pink warning go away! Gasp...
If you are absolutely certain the permissions are correct, and you still get the warning, you can turn the warning off this way:.
At the bottom of.

Alter it to:.
