I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at Verisign as they probably can help you..
I edited it in oscommerce. maybe I will try again with word pad. that worked to change my logo..
I got it now. I was editing the wrong index.php. there are a ton of them..
Whick index.php did you change to make it work? I am still trying to change my text..
I am going through catalog/includes/language/english/index.php - and nothing is changing. Am I in the wrong index??..
This is where I am when I make changes.
I hope that helps..
No wonder it is not working for me. A lot of people have been talking about the public_html folder and I don't have it! How do I get that? Where does it come from? Why don't I have it????.
Where do I go from here?.
How did you come to have public_html? Did it come with oscommerce or your web host. Sorry for the questions... I kind of having very little idea about this stuff..
The public_html folder (directory) is the one where you will ftp your files to..
It is commonly called the 'root' folder..
It is set up when your host sets up your hard drive server space..
You will see it if you ftp to your Verisign site so you can see all your files..
It does NOT come with osc. It is there already. If it is not there look in every directory you have and if there is one where you see index.php and maybe index.html also another folder called 'images' as well many others, that will be your version of the public_html folder..
Remember it's name..
My root folder is httpdocs where my Host told me to upload my Verisign website and where I uploaded catalog. So it looks like this:.
(this is where I have been making my store front page changes). But.
When I go into File Manager under oscom none of my changes are there and needless to say they arent appearing on my store page..
Ive been following the info in the How Do I .? Pages under Installation & configuration attempting to change the front page text, colours, banner etc..
With NO luck (except a massive banner at the bottom of my page).
By all accounts, from instructions given in the forums this should be working for me but it's not.
Yes, do not use the osc file manager. Use an ftp program, or your webhosts control panel file manager...
Why do you say this? I have been using osc file manager for almost all of my work to the Verisign site and it has been great. the only time I use an ftp is to upload folders or large amounts of files.
Jolicatellas, I wish I could be of more help, but I installed osc through my Cpanel and I really dont know a lot about what I am doing. lots of reading along with trial and error have gotten me this far..
My biggest problem seems to be that nothing I do changes my store or the data in osCommerce File Manager..
I do all my work via ftp uploads... (luckily... I have never been able to edit osCom File Manager...) but the changes I make/upload don't appear in the File Manager data in osCommerce and more to the point... my store isn't changing..
Your problem may be that you have an error in your configure.php file if you see webspace/httpdocs//catalog/includes/language/English/index.php.
There should not be a //.
Also, the English directory should be english..
Yeah, sorry... my English directory is english and I put the // there to imply root file, but their are not double lines..
Somebody mentioned ftp'ing to the wrong location. ??..
I have been searching the last couple of days for answers to my questions and most of the time I can find them. this time I am not so lucky. I am trying to edit the text in the index page. I went to.
I found the text I wanted to change and made some changes. then I saved it and nothing happened. it still has the default text. does it matter if I edit the file in my computer or in the file manager? I found the file in file manager, clicked the info button and clicked edit. I changed what I wanted and then clicked save. any ideas? I am pulling my hair out trying to get this going..
It shouldn't matter how you did it, as long as you did the correct thing to the correct file and saved it..
Are you doing 'in' oscommerce admin or via an ftp editor or dreamweaver etc?.
Maybe others can help better if they have more details...
