  1. this is a grassroots installation as recommended by Al. 1> created a new data base and subdomain. 2. downloaded c4.4.5 which is what I have been using for years. ( a fresh down load from the cubecart site) 3. uploaded it to my subdomain and installed it andshop.eurekafarm.net/setup 4. went through the installation steps and at step 4 it bombed out. Tried many times with different combos but can't ge tit to work. error message: Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user 'fred'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /home/eurekafa/public_html/andshop/classes/db/db.php on line 37 Access denied for user 'fred'@'localhost' (using password: YES) obviously won't let me into my mysql set up. I have tried many ways including the full id eurekafa_fred and eurekafa_cc2 but this doesn't help. Others have said the same thing in the forum and some manage to get it sorted out but as I understand it not sure why. can anyone help. the program I love but installation is always difficult. after I get the c4.4.5 working I would overlayit with cubecart 6.2.8 after removing images and includes I think that's what Al says. But can't do anymore until this works.
  2. downloaded cubecart 4.4.5 which has been working very well on another domain. (downloaded as a zip file). Uploaded it to the new subdomain. Created a mysql file and reloaded the sql download from the old file. reset the global.inc parameters. took php back to 5.4 for this database. then tested . Store front opened ok but if any category was pressed it redirected to the old domain which was still active. Fixed up .htaccess but nothing changed. Decided problem was probably in the admin side but could not open it. the following error message occurs: Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function set_magic_quotes_runtime() in /home/eurekafa/public_html/shopping/ini.inc.php:120 Stack trace: #0 /home/eurekafa/public_html/shopping/admin/index.php(20): include() #1 {main} thrown in /home/eurekafa/public_html/shopping/ini.inc.php on line 120 magic quotes seems not to operate in this version of cubecart although it work perfectly fine on old domain at any php. I really don't know why it is a trouble. Glad I didn't upgrade directly as all would have been lost. when I get cubecart 4.4.5 working on this domain then I will upgrade to 6.2.8
  3. thanks Degsey. I am using xp and not vista. Can't i just use my file properties box to do the same thing as Filezilla does or cubecart equivalent to change attributes or do you somehow need to generate the filepermission numbers as well.
  4. I am trying to install cc3 on my personal computer in order to smooth out some of the setup that i want to do. I also had the same problems installing cubecart on my host website as i am having with installation on local host on my pc. Only by using fantastico did I get it up and runningon my host site. Now fantastico is not readlily available for a home installation and to be honest I would like to know what I am doing wrong. Assume I have a database named cart, a data base user name root is the following correct. ( i am referring to step 4 of the manual installation) Database Settings Database Hostname: localhost Database Name: root_cart Database Username: root_cart Database Password: Database Prefix: 1 I have checked global.inc <?php $glob['dbdatabase'] = 'root_cart'; $glob['dbhost'] = 'localhost'; $glob['dbpassword'] = ''; $glob['dbprefix'] = ''; $glob['dbusername'] = 'root_cart'; $glob['installed'] = '1'; $glob['rootDir'] = 'C:\\\\wamp\\\\www\\\\cubecart; $glob['rootRel'] = '/cc17/'; $glob['storeURL'] = 'http://localhost/cubecart'; ?> I am using wamp but have also tried xampp . both have similar features and both produced the same error properties. I have used phpMyAdmin to check data files on both systems and they do correspond. But they do appear to be different to guidelines provide with the installation one other thing does the database need to be created before installation begins. I have tried many combos on database username and its associated database. I am sure that this naming of users,databases and joining could be the problem. So please give me a simple explanation of just what to do here. Looking at the forums so many people seem to have this same difficulty ie #1045 error, access denied for user 'root'@'localhost I am sure lots of people are coming unstuck in the nomenclature used on this page. Anyone out there who can help the poor innocent that i am would be greatly appreciated.
