My first question is What is the best iPage web host server for my own forum? Many thanks for any response. Another question on my mind: On three of my orders osCommerce has somehow grabbed a different customer's information and inserted it as the new customer's main info..

So the confirmation email ends up going to the wrong person (goes to old customer), and it appears that the old customer has ordered again, when it is really the new customer ordering for the first time..

Help!..

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

I've done that. Here's what I have:.

// * DIR_FS_* = Filesystem directories (local/physical).

// * DIR_WS_* = Webserver directories (virtual/URL).

Define('HTTP_SERVER', '***'); // eg,.

Http://localhost.

- should not be empty for productive servers.

Define('HTTPS_SERVER', '***'); // eg,.

Https://localhost.

- should not be empty for productive servers.

Define('ENABLE_SSL', true); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?.

Define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', '***');.

Define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', '***');.

Define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', 'catalog/');.

Define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', 'catalog/');.

Define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', 'catalog/');.

Define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '');.

Define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/');.

Define('DIR_WS_ICONS', DIR_WS_IMAGES'icons/');.

Define('DIR_WS_INCLUDES', 'includes/');.

Define('DIR_WS_BOXES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES'boxes/');.

Define('DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS', DIR_WS_INCLUDES'functions/');.

Define('DIR_WS_CLASSES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES'classes/');.

Define('DIR_WS_MODULES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES'modules/');.

Define('DIR_WS_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES'languages/');.

Define('DIR_WS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', 'pub/');.

Define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', dirname($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SCRIPT_FILENAME']));.

Define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD', DIR_FS_CATALOG'download/');.

Define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', DIR_FS_CATALOG'pub/');.

// define our database connection.

Define('DB_SERVER', '***'); // eg, localhost - should not be empty for productive servers.

Define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', '***');.

Define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', '***');.

Define('DB_DATABASE', '***');.

Define('USE_PCONNECT', 'true'); // use persistent connections?.

Define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql'); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'..

Comment #2

To clarify.. I had already set it to store sessions in mysql and it didn't solve the problem..

Any other ideas?..

Comment #3

Define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false');.

Http_server should be.

Http://www.yourdomain.com.

Http_cookie_path should be /catalog/.

Http_cookie_domain should be www.yourdomain.com.

Vger..

Comment #4

That is how I started out, with 'use_pconnect', 'false'. I just changed that to 'true' today to see if that would help..

The other stuff I have had set, I just put in *** in my post for privacy because the iPage site is not password protected yet..

Anything else up your sleeve hopefully?..

Comment #5

The strange thing is it doesn't happen to every costomers.. we have 61 orders and it has happened 3 times. Seems intermitant...

Comment #6

Got the same problem here. Intermittent, no pattern that I can see. Settings appear to be right, sessions stored in mysql, etc. Driving me bonkers, to tell you the truth. It happens only now and then...

Comment #7

I've seen this happen before, and what it seems to be is a corruption of the address book table..

See.

Comment #9

Sounds like you are recording sessions in a 'tmp' folder. You should be using mysql to store them in the database (this way you shouldn't get this sort of corss-over on a shared server). In your configure.php files, last line should read as.

Define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql'); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'.

Vger..
