That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..
Thanks for the reply,.
About the images, the buttons and default images are not displaying. I set all of the permissions from the install guide. Below are some pictures..all of the info buttons has X's...images dont work anywhere..
Are the values for those product images proper in data base..
Are the image names having spaces or special characters..
Is permission to each image proper..
Are images not corrupt..
Get answer to these and Yur should have images all over..
These are all the original images which oscommerce provides...shouldn't they appear after install? I noticed the image folder permissions had to be changed but do all of the sub-files need their permissions changed as well? also in my admin panel, some buttons don't apprea like the info button in my above picture..
The images in the picture at the first link show the classic symptoms of images FTP'd to the server in.
Re-FTP the images to the server but be sure the FTP program is using.
That might fix the admin problem as well...
Thanks I used this advice to help clear up some images where I had a red x as well but uploading to:.
None of the images are shown despite us binary to upload them.
Any ideas anyone?..
Look in your.
FOLDER for a .htaccess file..
If it's there, rename it to text.htaccess.
That may help...
When I have just logged back in it is working the only thing that doesn't appear to work is the drop down list for the times zones - this is just blank.
Thnaks for your help Jim..
Hi - what do you mean by "are the values for those product images proper in the data base?".
Also "Is permission to each image proper?".
These are newly created images which are not corrupted. One of my images has no spaces whilst the other does and is all in caps. So both cannot be not working! I don't understand what this is all about..
Can you be more precise please. Thanks..
They could be corrupted by uploading in the wrong format..
Tis best to use no spaces in the name. The one you pointed out in the other thread did have spaces..
Another point is what extension is on the other files that do not display?..
Well when You applied an image to the product might Yuor admin code was faulty so not proper values got into the db or Your image names had some special characters..
Two different *.jpg files - one had spaces and was in caps. These have been used before, and indeed other images in my data base have also been uploaded correctly since my last clean install (the one you see on my website!) All this just happened suddenly..
The only difference now is that my server was playing ducks and drakes with my relocating from the root directory to the shop directory. This relocation is only temporary, as I will be putting another iPage site before this so that my customers can then click on a link to the shop after the introduction to the other services I will have availalble..
I am at a complete loss as to think what this is..
Thanks for your help, I will keep slogging away and try different solutions...
Well, this is great! Please read the reply I gave Coopco. My images worked before, not now. I don't understand this. I have checked my permissions. I presume they should be atleast 755 or 777! Well, I have done this and still, it is not working. Is there something that I'm missing? Perhaps something in my admin? I don't know.
If it were corrupted I would not be able to get it seen anywhere! N'est pas?.
What should the admin code be that you refer to please?.
Thanks for your help..
Still think it is the spaces and capitals. Eg, some are looking for.
Instead of (I assume).
There is no ReiKi.jpg in the location given...
My sincere and grateful thanks to all those who gave me heaps of useful information for this matter. It has taken over a week to try to sort it and now it is as simple as the morons at my server copying my complete catalog folder into another folder without telling me and redirecting my web iPage site to it. So I have been uploading all my images to another folder whilst fully believing that I am uploading to the correct one!.
I jumped from the fryng pan and into the fire it seems with servers. No worries, I will get my pound of flesh yet (even if it has to be in the here-after.....
So now all is well. Just have to add new images from my File Zilla!.
As far as edumacating my partner to not include spaces in his image names, this will be a gradual learning curve. Thanks for the helpful advice. It is really appreciated!..
That fixed it..i'm surprised that's not in the instructions..or maybe I just missed it. Thanks a lot...
I have File Zilla which has "autodetect". I have found ths program to be completely reliable and quick. My pictures came through very well with this program...
Ok I am having this same problem... I use filezilla and I used binary and still pics dont display. I checked the path and they seem to not be pulling correctly..
This is what they are.....
Shouldn't they be this.....
I have a couple of questions. I followed all of the permissions in the install guide but none of the images work on any page. Most images are showing like maybe 10% of the image horizontal, just showing a thin layer of the image. Any ideas?.
Also, I want to install this on my homepage. I don't want it installed at www.domainname.com/catalog. How can I set it up this way?.

To do away with /catalog:.
When you upload oscommerce to your webserver, do not simply upload the catalog file and all it's contents..
Open catalog, and upload all the files within straight to your root directory.
In most ftp clients, this is done by highlighting everything within catalog and dragging it across to the upload window..
Images: Do you mean the stocvk oscommerce images, or do you mean products images you have added?.
If it's product images, then the chances are you have uploaded images that are far too big in file size..
Optimize all your product images in a graphics or photo editor to reduce the image and file size, (re-size image tool usually)...
