I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..
Does anyone else knows about this flush? If not, I can I remove that message?..
Do a search in the forums or try looking in the contributions section of www.oscommerce.com..
The first thing you need to do is download the current version of osCommerce and install it..
Your host (most likely powerweb) has an ancient version of osc, more than 2 years out of date..
Don't waste your time working with that version, you'll get zero support here and none of the contributions will work with it...
AlanR - I have uploaded the "catalog" through ftp, but I don't know how to install it.
Would you be able to help me with that? Thanks!.
Lots of people here can coach you through that but have a look at the Knowledge Base, there's a link at the top of this page..
Specifically, look at:.
Oh my good lord, now I got the installation screen, but now it's giving me all these error mesages about access denied..
Where did you put the catalog folder? It's not at.
OK, so what's the problem?.
You do have to know your database name, password, and database server. It's also good to know the file system path. You could find those from looking at the install of the old version but I can't remember where you'd have to look..
There's been about a zillion posts here by ipowerweb users (not all of them nice). I've never used them myself. This poster put together an ipowerweb guide..
AlanR - you r my saving hero!! that post will sure help, i'll be back once I finish reading it and do some trial and error... thanks again!!..
Yay I got pass teh second step from that post... stupid ipowerweb guyz don't even know what they are doing.... they told me the database server name is: host215.ipowerweb.com when it's just "localhost"... any how I really appreciate all your help from everybody =D thanks!..
Yup, just as the title says, i'm a newbie and my server have installed oscommerce for me:.
Now my question is, how do I get rid of this "demo shop" I want to get pay and ship my items out. Can anyone help me out.
There's a contribution I believe that can quick flush the demo stuff out..
Otherwise you'll have to do it like everybody else and manually remove/modify it!..
