  1. Need a little help with *cough*4.3.4*cough*

    Al, this must bring back fond memories - or nightmares... The amusing part of it is that the store itself works. It is just the admin functions that are broken. However the coding of the admin side is quite distinctly different from the customer-facing part. This is a good point that you make. SSL is enabled for the whole site for the production system, but not for the development system. Is there something SSL-ish in the database that I need to change to switch it off? R
  2. I suggest you put that cup of coffee down and swallow whatever is in your mouth before reading further. We don't want any nasty accidents. Safe to proceed? OK. I have an online store that runs CubeCart 4.3.4. I tricked it up so it does some nice things with shipping, made the invoices Australia compatible and fiddled with the tax handling to make it agree with the letter of the law for GST. Added some display stuff etc et etc. Installed some enhancements to get linearly numbered invoice numbers and stock levels for product options so it does pretty much what I want it too. Doing it all once was OK, but doing it again for version 5, then version 6 ... you know how it is - rather go to the beach, the races, the bar, the proctologist... Maybe for version 7. Anyhow, I have had to move my development environment to a new machine and it almost works. I use a subversion/Coda rig to keep it all in order. In the interests of general hygiene, I copied the production system installation back from the live server to make a test environment, rather than muck around the ancient setup from the original system. Oh, and it all runs on a Mac. Has done for years. However, the test environment is only partly functional. The store itself is good except that the images are not showing up. (probably need to rebuild the image database, whatever that does. That ain't the problem.) Problem is that the admin screen returns with this: Not Found The requested URL /~russ/shop/~russ/shop/admin.php was not found on this server. The url to the shop itself is http://localhost/~russ/shop and that works fine (except for the images.) Something is infecting the admin URL with an extra "rootRel" from global.inc.php. Any ole-timers got any thoughts about what this might be? Russ
  3. CC 4 - Update Settings gives 403 error

    Thank you! The hosting co has confirmed that I tripped not one but four mod_security rules. We are now working out how to deal with it until I can upgrade to something more modern.
  4. CC 4 - Update Settings gives 403 error

    OK, so I have found that the config is, in fact, stored in the database. My user is a super-user so I would expect it to pass any update checking done by CC itself. Does the config update change any files, by any chance?
  5. I say, chaps, I have a CC 4.3.4 installation that has been running an online store since 2010 or so. I am about to go on holiday and I need to take the store offline. When I try to save General Settings, I get a 403 error. My hosting service likes to monkey with file permissions in unexpected ways, because they know what's best... Please tell me what the name of the file is, and the appropriate permissions, so I can take the store offline and go on my holiday. (I will be glad when it's over so I can come home and relax...) Thanks for your help Russ OK, now I am more confused - I have found the code that saves the settings and it does indeed save into CubeCart_content with name = config. So - question - Why the 403 error? Thanks again for your help. Russ
