I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..
Haha I'm not that stupid. The only one like that is the index.php from osCommerce. I figured out why it's like this. It's because it's not setting up the config file properly when I do the install. I did give the folders write permissions, but it's still not working. Could you tell me how to configure my config file properly through a text editor?..
Honesty, in my experience, I have never seen a misconfigured configure.php file create something like that....
That's usually what you see if you have a PHP error but it fails to output an error message to the browser...
Ahh haa.. so like my USUALLY advice that I give to everyone with a blank page.. go to your host and make sure that you have error reporting turned on.. if you dont know how to do it, call your host..
In osC you turn it on in.
Find this line:.
Error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE);.
Change it to:.
Error_reporting (E_ALL & ~E_WARNING);..
Ok I changed it to error_reporting(E_ALL); but I'm still getting just a blank page. What am I going to do? I can't figure this thing out...
Try the other error level setting, too..
If that don't work - I haven't a clue.....
When I go to the admin page it says, "Unable to connect to database server!".
I downloaded both config files (from /include and /admin/include) after I did the installation, and neither of them had any of the information filled in. I'm guessing this is the problem? The installation isn't writing to the files. Why not? I enabled writing on the folders...
Then go in and write the config. files youself. those are the EASIEST files to do.. there is a thread in this forum called Guide to Configure.php read that and it will set you all up...
Ok I did that too. Still no change. This is really weird. I have set up osCommerce before and it worked fine. I'm not sure why it isn't working now. This is what I put in my config file..

Wait I figured it out! I do feel stupid now. I'm setting up osCommerce for a friend and he had his GoDaddy account setup with a Windows server. Needs Linux for PHP. I thought they would've put Apache on the Windows server anyway, but I guess not...
I go to the directory where the catalog is and I get just a blank page. Why is this? View Source gives me this:.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">.
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"></HEAD>.
That is the ONLY thing in your source then you have a SERIOUS issue... Did you make a blank page called index.html and put it in your category directorty?..
