1) Change the register_global setting to ON in your php.ini file.

2) Follow the osCommerce installation instructions from osCommerce.

I don't know for sure, but I've seen a few comments that suggest
that osCommerce makes hard to modify sites (eg, if you want the
shop to look significantly different than the one(s) osCommerce
gives you "in the box" so to speak.

Setting up xampp and Oscommerce

I'm interested in migrating a store from Miva Merchant (host A) , using Linkpoint, to Oscommerce. (host B) . I have a few sites
running on host B but none handle ecommerce.

I did a linkpoint search on oscommerce forums and someone mentioned Xampp, and the linkpoint api module requires ssl, and here I am.

I downloaded the one click installer and the oscommerce file. I'm using xp pro corp, I could recycle a box for 2000 or freebsd but the xp is more convenient for me at this point.

So far I've changed the register_globals = ON


I've copied the oscommerce zip files to http://localhost/xampp/htdocs/ folder

stopped and restarted apache and mysql from the admin console

when i point my browser to http://localhost/catalog/install/ i get this error:

FATAL ERROR: register_globals is disabled in php.ini, please enable it!

I did a search and i find several php.ini:

php.ini, php-dist, php-recommened (C:\Program Files\xampp\php)
php.ini (C:\Program Files\xampp\apache\bin)
php.ini, php-dist, php-recommened (C:\Program Files\xampp\php\php4)

Which of these should I edit?

Set up a file in the web directory that includes the following:

echo phpinfo();

somewhere in it. That will display all current PHP settings, including the location of the php.ini in use.

Also, make certain you restart Apache after changing anything.

You have allready this file:

The answer for this question you can also find on the "XAMPP for Windows" homepage... (or inside the demopages --> menue: php-switch)
