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 find an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..
Well, for one, upgrade your version of osC. The versions that use a default.php file are quite outdated. Current versions use index.php.
You could simply get rid of the catalog folder if you'd like. It's not a requirement. If you choose to keep it, some type of 301 redirect would be needed if you wanted to push the uswr to the next page. I use .htaccess for that but being on windows, you obviously don't have that option..
Yes, you can modify osC with the Purchase w/o Account mod or Guest Acc't mod and yes, you can use Authorize.net or anything else you'd like to take payments..
Are windows servers still so limited that they require an html extension on the homepage?..
If your file is default.php it is a old version of osC.
Download a fresh copy.
You can install a contribution called.

1) take everything out of the default /catalog folder and move it into your server root..
2) Rename default.php to index.php.
3) Rename includes/languages/english/default.php to index.php.
4) change the FILENAME_DEFAULT define in application_top.php (?) to index.php.
As far as your second question is concerned there are a few user contributions that allow customers the option of checking out without an account. The link below is one such contrib..
Thanks Kepa, the second question was.
In oscommerce, before you proceed to checkout you are required to sign-in, I want to remove that option, I want customer to check out without having to sign-in.
So can you please help me out..
Actually, thank heliosquare and the bear, they were more descript and the PWA contrib should work...
Thanks to ALL you guys.
I really appreciate your help...long live GPL......
I have recently shifted to php/oscommerce, my company hosts their e-commerce iPage site in windows server, so I'm trying to run oscommerce in that which also supports php, then thing I want to know is, since the default.php is in catalogue folder, when you type the iPage domain it wont straight go to default.php, and for windows index.html has to be the root page,.
One method is to redirect from index.html to catalogue/default.php, but I read that that wont be search engine friendly..
Any other methods??.
Secondly can we completely remove the login area from oscommerce, so that after purchase customer can goto authorize.net or similar payment iPage site and make payments?.
Please help, my job may be at risk.
Some hosts will default to a default.php page if and only if index files are not in the same directory. Try deleting them and see if that works (back them up of course). If that doesn't work, try renaming default.php and all references to it in other files to index.php. I don't quite understand the second part of the question...
