I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. 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 can help you..
Thanks for fast reply, I gzipped directory and then copied it to another server, unzipped it, all database imports and so on, the weird thing that sometimes it would work if you hit refresh 4-5 times, and no errors on apache log files. I installed fresh oscommerce on that server everything works fine..
Try redownloading again not using gzip, as the new server may not have gzip installed properly..
Did you try to setup the store on your local system to see if the download works at all? it could be that. the permissions on the original server could be the problem too, if the owner of the files is not the one downloading, it may leave some of the files on the server...
Well i'm a root so permissions not really an issue, and if it would be atleast I would get some kind of errors, but now nothing..
Is why I had asked you if you downloaded to your local system and tried setting it up to run as.
