My 1st question is: Which should I choose iPage or host gator for webhosting? Many thanks for any comment. My other question... I'm experiencing some big problems. My oscommerce, every time I log in and click on my account or check out, it asks me to login again. It does this over and over again. Any ideas?..

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

Basically, if your http and https paths for your iPage domain have a trailing slash at the end, then the cookie paths in the file mentioned above should look like this.

Define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '');.

Define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '');.

If your iPage domain name doesn't have a trailing slash at the end, then the cookie path should look like this.

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

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

Hope this helps - Vger..

HTTP_SERVER and HTTPS_SERVER paths in the osCommerce should not have trailing slashes.

Whyever not? Especially as they work fine with them, provided that other pathways 'slashes' match. I have sites with http and https with trailing slashes, and sites without them, all work okay. I note that you're a 'Team Member' so if there's a sound reason as to why what I am doing is wrong then I'd like to know. Many Thanks Vger..

Comment #5

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

Try.

Define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '');.

Hope this helps - Vger..

Comment #9

Yea, I'm running the newest oscommerce, what file am I missing?..

Comment #10

Just for the heck of it in configure.php change this line:.

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

To:.

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

Comment #11

Take a look at this.

Define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', ' /home/tycscf8/public_html/cart/catalog/ ');.

Try something like.

Define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/var/www/html/cart/catalog/');.

Really depends on the setup your host provides - ask them for the file pathway, or go to their support section and see if they quote it there..

Comment #13

Most likely your cookie settings in catalog/includes/configure.php are incorrect..
