That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..
No, I made backups of the 'includes/configure.php' and 'admin/includes/configure.php' because that is what I was working on. On the iPage site itself I just removed some countries and changed the main display text according to one of the articles here..
IOW, no I didn't, didn't think the minor changes were that big of a change...although I'm sure they are the famous last words of a noob..
Can I run a fix with phpmyadmin or something?..
I now how to run REPAIR TABLE on phpmyadmin, had to do it for my PHPBB forum once before too. However, I don't know what (or if) table to fix...
In the admin area, can you get in to the languages section under Localizations?.
This information is in the languages table...
It is due to register_globals Off in your php.ini file..
Set it to register_globals On...
Thanks for the tips, I looked through all the files in my catalog and php.ini is not there. So....this means it evidently is part of the database somehow? Can you lead a bit further as to how to get to it? I have phpmyadmin...I cannot log onto any page of my catalog or the admin tool..
Have you tried changing 'includes/application_top.php on line 285' :.
Assuming your /includes/languages/english.php is still intact.
Just tried changing that, it simply moves the error to a different line (33)...
To my knowledge, I didn't edit english.php at all. The only thing I edited were the configure.php files in the catalog and admin section with my iPage website and database information. When I started editing the catalog, I simply replaced the osCommerce picture with my own and editing some of the wording on the front according to the directions on the generic catalog index page..
Everything was fine after all my editing, I even showed the progress of the shop to my girlfriend. I cruised around the catalog a bit thinking of ideas, and then turned the computer off and went to bed. When I went to check the catalog during free time at work...the fatal error was up. I figure something happened with a table between that time period. I have had a similar error before on a PHPBB forum I run, but with that the table with the error showed up on phpmyadmin. I find no such tables as in the different wording of this particular error.
At some point, if I reach a dead end, can I simply reinstall over this...or ask my host to purge the recent osCommerce database submission and start over?..
FWIW, by creating a phpinfo.php file and uploading it I have been able to view my settings. register_globals is already set to "On"...
Nevermind, started again from scratch. Thanks for the effort and suggestions...who knows what exactly the database problem was...
I dont blame ya there...but your original post, looked to be a basic problem with php.exe (not a script problem on your part...
Indeed, must have been something like that. Things all around are running much smoother with the new install. (famous last words...)..
O.k., was working late on things last night, everything was fine when I turned off my browser and went to bed..
Trying to view the shop today, and I get this:.
I fixed a problem on my own last night, but this one I do not even understand where to start experimenting (following backing everything up.
Any help? Link to see exactly is.
Did you backup your database last night prior to gooing to bed? if so, try restoring it via phpmyadmin or mysql connector..
