Thread: missing buttons

  1. #1

    Default missing buttons


    OSCMax installed fine and I've been slowly learning it.

    But I have two problems. 1) the buttons (/english/images/buttons/) aren't appearing - just broken links.

    and 2) even though categories have been setup I don't see anything in the categories box

    Based on a search of the 1st problem, in configure.php I have
    define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://localhost');
    define('DIR_WS_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'languages/');

    And I have the permissions set to allow anyone to read the files in the directory english/images/buttons

    I'm running as localhost on a Mac OSX 10.3

    As for issue 1.
    In the function tep_image_button() found in html_output.php I'm trying to decipher
    $language (see /classes/language.php). Is it possible the $language is not set correctly? Or hopefully it's something trivial.

    I'm not sure about problem 2.

    Anyway, any suggestions would be most appreciated.

    Most likely just an issue with your configure.php file.

    Get your cookie domains correct and make sure all your paths are correct. That should fix it. If not, check your php/mysql versions. If using php 5.x or mySQL 4.1x that will cause your issues. You will need to change some php.ini settings to get things working. There is a post here that discusses it:

    I discovered the issue. It was with my setting of Apache (2.0.4.

    In httpd.conf I had changed 'AllowOverride None'
    to 'AllowOverride AuthConfig'

    I had done this in order to try out the user authentication.

    In catalog/includes, .htaccess consists of the following

    <Files *.php>
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all

    The combination of the two prevented the loading of the images. Either setting http.conf back to 'AllowOverride None' or commenting out the 4 lines in .htaccess allowed everything to be displayed. I have to learn more about Apache to understand it.

    The moral to the story is a little knowledge = big danger.
