How to configure oscommerce site

Hi friends,In my previous post i have explained what is oscommerce and how to install it in localhost. Today I want to discuss how to configure the oscommerce if we are files at subfolder and  run at localhost or site . You need to do some modification in localhost while migrate it to server. I have explained in detail with code.

http://localhost/root-site/shop/

We may get errors at this point, suppose we are run oscommerce shop in a sub folder then we  have to think that how to configure this file to run the site success . Follow below points to configure file to run the shop at your localhost or site.

<?php

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http:// [ SERVER ] ');

define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'http:// [ SERVER] ');

define('ENABLE_SSL', false);

define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'http://[ SERVER ] ');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'http://[SERVER]');

define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/[YOUR PATH]');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '[ YOUR PATH]');

define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/[ YOUR PATH ]');

define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/[ YOUR PATH]');

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', '/[ CATALOG ]');

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

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

define('DB_SERVER', [DATABASE SERVER]);

define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', '[DATABASE USER]');

define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', '[PASSWORD]');

define('DB_DATABASE', '[DATABASE NAME]');

define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false');

define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql');

?>

®Note :

SERVER :

localhost / your site name ( eg: anillabs.com )

YOUR PATH :

where the oscommerce files are stored those path

(eg: if files are at shop folder then give like “/shop”)

CATALOG :

Once run this file at your oscommerce folder :

 $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']

If it is a windows + using apache server it will give :

C:/appserv/www/

After this we have to add your oscommerce folder. Suppose your files at “shop” folder. Then

CATALOG = c:/apserv/www/oscommerce/shop/

Once complete these steps , just change the file permission to avoid the warning message at home page of  oscommerce shop site.

Hope that it will be useful .
