How to run oscommerce on xampp?

Postby tzri » 31. March 2011 12:03

First I'm not sure whether this is about xampp or xampp settings or about the program I installed on xampp.
My xampp skills are close to none.

Goal: To run oscommerce on a windows 7 hp xampp installation.

This has succeeded: Installed xampp and it is running. Created admin pasword and a sql database.
Installed and running oscommerce.
Running localhost and phpadmin in oscommerce works.
About running oscommerce localhost, all graphics and pictures are shown properly.

Problem: If I from another computer call the oscommerce webshop created than from the localhostcomputer, graphics and
pictures are not shown, only text. Maybe that is what is called html mode. I don't know.
Watch screenpicture here:

Q:Is there a way to solve that, so pictures and graphics are shown correctly on other computers?
Note: I haven't a webdomainname for the oscommerce webshop, so when I call the oscommerce webshop
from another computer I write: http://"my ip address"/oscommerce/catalog/

Remark: I'm running xampp and oscommerce on a testing computer, but every piece of advice regarding security
is highly appreciated.

Thanks.

So you configured OSC to run from localhost not your IP - check your paths in the OSC configuration are not all set to localhost or 127.0.0.1.
