  1. In have been seeing issues with Firefox, had to reset a few times, or use private browsing. I switched over to Chrome at those exact moments and no issues with Chrome.. I am suspicious. Will
  2. RESOLVED: The issue is only apparent in the windows "Offline" environment. Time to install linux and do this correctly!--- a whole new learning curve. After I uploaded my DB and files to my host - no issue, clean as a whistle. Thank you very much Bsmither; I really do appreciate your efforts. Will H.
  3. Thanks to this post from Bsmither : Posted November 10, 2014 I see 'localhost' as the database host, and 'g8f9x9j5_sitemovetest' as the database name. I also see 'cubecart_config' as the table name. I am going to ask that you give some thought to what kind of operating system your account is being hosted on. Please be aware that with some operating systems. lettercase does not matter, meaning that similarly spelled names (or the database, table, column, filename, whatever) that differ only with uppercase and lowercase letters are treated the same. Most every other operating system is very much lettercase-aware. So, I see you pulled up the table name cubecart_config, yet CubeCart is asking for CubeCart_config. You may need to rename all the tables so that CubeCart has the capitol 'C' letters. Or, if you still have the SQL file you used to restore the database, load it into a programmer's text editor and find all the 'cubecart' sequences and replace them with 'CubeCart' sequences. I can understand how this could have happened. Dumping the database to a SQL file from Windows would most likely have generated all-lowercase names. " I was able to get my localhost created website/content uploaded and re-linked to my SQL hosted database successfully; after hours of mucking about and several different errors. NOTE: If you are exporting/backing up from a local Windows host, it will export tables in all lowercase, and upon re-uploading to my server (I manually extracted cubecart and installed it) the cubecart install is looking for CubeCart (not cubecart). Thanks for this old, yet excellent post Bsmither.
  4. I did not specify any special font, and I don't see the special character while navigating admin at all. The character appears in different spots dependent on the skin used. Foundation eliminates the character from the shipping module lines, but they return when I change the ski to say Mauris, Mican, E-sharp ... This is peculiar indeed. I was seeing these in my " welcome " and "terms and conditions " but was able to filter them out. In my database, should every entry be utf-8? some are listed as INNODB and have different formatting. Very curious indeed. I was playing with languages earlier trying to add English - Can and French - Can (mostly by duplicating US) and editing. Perhaps something noteworthy: When I manually download and re-add US back in, it imports the language (directly from markeplace download zip) but doesn't place the flag correctly. When i use a token to install, it does. Neither of my English/French Can attempts ever displayed the flag (i followed you instructions in the forums to edit the srites_flag and add the flag 16x11px to the bottom, and edit cubecart.css to span to the correct location (110) and nothing working. Not sure if this information is related; I don't think so as I was seeing these characters in my documents, prior. Where in Admin do I specify the font? It makes sense skins may differn font, and results are changing, so.. this may help? Bsmither: is this what you are referring to? Will
  5. So the solution is to crawl through the registry using phpMyAdmin, and investigate the module? What if I just changed the font? I didn't have a specific preference... Thanks Bsmither!
  6. I have been making great progress and generally I am good to go! I seem to have acquired some funny characters showing up in my (copied/edited) web documents and now I see in my shipping module (AIOS). I have my setting to utf_8. for example: " � Estimated value " <-- the funny question mark I have been able to remove them manually (seems to be "TAB" spacing in documents by loading in to Notepad ++ and then copying back to description of product. I then have to g back and edit formatting/colors etc. Any ideas? .. I don't mind editing the products, but I have no idea what to do in extensions/modules. Is this a database issue? Will
  7. Thank you. My struggles were resolved with 2 steps. 1. I switched from EasyPHP Devserver 17 to WAMP (current version). ( i added my own phpMyAdmin version and seemingly corrupted it and any subsequent SQL database / user entry) 2. I stopped using the wrong prefix of cc_cubecart_ = which was incorrect, the prefix is supposed to be cc_ for my data tables. (I believe this is the default setting, at least when the cPanel installed it for me) Will
  8. I am happy to announce I have my Windows environment going with WAMP and a fresh cubecart 622 installed and FINALLY reconnected to my DB!. What was wrong? 1. Random issue with EasyPhp Dev Server 17 (my own doing I am sure) <-- phpMyAdmin and a bad database/user accounts after multiple imports/users a.) EasyPHP is awesome, but the current version fell short of cubecart's needs. (by default) It had PHP 7.1.3, and no curl support. I found out must later after installing PHP 7.2.11 and 7.3RC4. (I got curl working, but it took some doing as I was learning!) b.) Apache 2.4.25 was the current version, so I installed 2.4.35 x86 and x64 (never got x64 fully working) that there was some issue with phpMYadmin 4.8.3 (I installed) so my database imports/user accounts never seemed to line up with correct permissions. I abandoned EasyPhp and thought I would give Wamp a go -round. (I am sure EasyPHP will work well, I just got diverted on many upgrades before I could start testing my CC.) c.) During installation I was specifying the PREFIX incorrectly. I saw the records as cc_cubecart_blahblah_table I had incorrectly identified the prefix as cc_cubecart_. The correct prefix for these database entries was cc_ . <--- this is why my successful connections previously didn't 2. Wamp installed right up, did my database import in less than 5 minutes. User was finally showing the correct permissions. a.) Installed a fresh copy of CC622 in subfolder, it connected to DB instantly, and when finished I logged in Admin and saw my orders/customers/products etc.. A few more steps and I was up and running! 1. Manually copy " images " folder and overwrite all factory files inside. - Product images showed up as expected 2. Manually copy " modules " folder and overwrite all factory files - Extensions all showed up. So far so good. TODAY IS A GOOD DAY! Edit: I have noticed a few funny characters, in some of the descriptions - I am looking in to this.
  9. Certainly agree. Although, the price was right! (I'm a cheepo!). $2.49 USD / month, inluding Domain registration. $84. USD for 3 years, done, out the door. I'll hopefully grow out of them quickly; in the meantime I'm digging in! (And I have "opted out" permanently from their analytics. Will
  10. I am doing a localhost using EasyPHP Devserver 17.0 (Windows) and I think I went through this also.... 1. There is a line of code to edit in the sample httpd.conf file for Apache v2.4.x _. .../Apache/conf/http.conf <IfModule dir_module> DirectoryIndex index.html index.shtml index.wml index.pwml index.php index.php3 index.php4 index.php5 ; I had to add the bolded items to the statement. </IfModule> This maybe something that was needed for EasyPHP Devserver install only, I don't have enough experience to know. 2. I wonder if the .htacess file in root is the problem? Those are my immediate guesses. I spent the last 2 days "upgrading" EasyPHP Devserver v17.0 (Apache 2.2.5 x86, PhP v7.1.3, PhPmyadmin v4.7.0) --> Apache v2.3.5 (x86 and x64), PhP v 7.2.1.1 (x86), 7.3.0 RC4 (x86, x64), and PhPmyadmin v4.8.3) 3 Days ago I never dreamed I could host my site at home, for Dev purposes. Edit: Also, make sure ServerRoot "C:/webserver/eds-binaries/httpserver/apache2435vc15x86" ; is defined using "forward" slashes (line:37 in my conf) (Line 225:) ServerName 127.0.0.1:80 and for me... (Line:249) DocumentRoot "C:/webserver/eds-www" (Line:250) <Directory "C:/webserver/eds-www"> These were critical for me the way my server runs -> the default of " ./HTDOCS " would be at the end of the default path, ( " C:/webserver/binaries/apache2435/htdocs ") although my " public web " folder is placed in the middle of my dir structures by default. I hope this helps! Will
  11. I guess I am confused because you confirmed you could see code injected even in my offline page? Will
  12. Hey Everyone; I have make backup after backup using cPanel backup feature and also CC backup feature, export catalogue feature, etc... I recently discovered GoDaddy is injecting code / has injected code in to my pages for analytics. I feel this may be the cause of my random crashes and such, which is killing me while trying to work on my site. I made the decision a few days ago to move (backup) my site to my own home server, for me to do all the work locally, with the gameplan I would upload the finished result, with products and such, ready for publishing live when I'm done. There are so many posts asking for help with backing up, restoring, rebuilding, that I have become quite confused - and just when I thought I was successful - I linked to my database with a fresh install of cubecart to find no products, categories, orders, product options, etc. This is where I need help because I have to do it now (to get started to work at home, offline, and then ultimately I will have to do it again to publish to my (new) host. I have NO code edits at this time. Here is where I need help. 1. Backup: a.) I have done this using cPanel, full site, along with separate Database, Homedir, and Email Filters backups have all been completed multiple times. b.) I have completed CC (v622) Backups for "files" and database multiple times. I have exported my (tiny) product catalog but I notices CC says this feature is not meant to "import existing" only new products (I am assuming this is because it doesn't carry product options/matrix/ complicated "database" style items. 2. I used PhPmyAdmin (on my localserver) to create the DB using the sql.create index and then imported my tables in to the database. I named the DB exactly as it was "online" with the same user name, prefix and password *took me a while to get that information all correct* I am able to see my database and it looks identical to online. I was also able to figure out how to use PhPmyAdmin to create my user account and password for the database. 3. using my local server at home, I did a fresh install of CC v622 (no GoDaddy code) in my pages. I used the correct username/database/password and it went as expected. 4. I am able login to admin, or view my sample store "locally" I see NONE of my existing work. What have I done wrong not to see products, categories, orders, customers data. Is it a sequence issue? Do i import tables and such AFTER rebuilding CubeCart? I understand to "restore" my site I need to accomplish several tasks independently. a.) all image files have to be manually uploaded to the "images" folder exactly where they were before (I noticed the some of the images made it, some did not?) b.) should I expect the database link to show clients, orders, products, etc... upon successfully linking? (I suppose successful is the active word - and I think this is where I am stuck) c.) what additional steps should I expect to do now (and again) in the future to make this work? Thanks in advance for any/all help. Ultimately I know I can pay someone to do all that for me - but if I need to know this for my own sanity - and to help others I would imagine. Will H
  13. Yes I do agree. I am assuming the pages were injected upon 1st load, and therefor "currupted" from my point of view. I have not made any scripting changes so would beyond compare allow me to compare files and "weed out" the bad code? Secondly, I have started setting up my Web server environment on my Windows PC. I have decided to use a fresh copy of cubecart, create a new database and import my info and see where that takes me locally. then my plan is to upload my site, now that analytics are turned off, they won't be re-injected. Sounds good- we'll see. Thank you; Will
  14. Thank you for your reply. How do I get rid of it? And no - I did not OPT IN / Only upon crashing was I made aware, and chose to opt out. I'm willing to bet that's responsible for a lot of the weird situations I have been experiencing. I would assume all of my pages are affected. Will
  15. I have managed to break my store again. The Issue: Email templates generate this: Kind regards, The www.Xgeeks.ca Staff I carefully tried to edit my Default Emails Template, (Store Settings > Email Templates > Email Templates > HTML Source > "Source" button: )as I have noticed despite me picking US ENG, the default template of UK ENG shows. This is validated by seeing the closing wording " Kind Regards ", rather than the US string " Thank you ". I carefully manually changed the words only, not adding or deleting any spaces I tried performing a fresh install of CubeCart with the intention of C & P the HTML source code to resolve the issue. That didnt work. Then, without editing the "fresh copy" source at all, as soon as I hit SAVE - it also crashed and left this error message: HTML Content: Syntax error in template "'undefined'=== typeof _trfq || (window._trfq = []);'undefined'=== typeof _trfd && (window._trfd=[]),_trfd.push({'tccl.baseHost':'secureserver.net'}),_trfd.push({'ap':'cpsh'},{'server':'a2plcpnl0582'}) // Monitoring performance to make your website faster. If you want to opt-out, please contact web hosting support." - Unexpected ":", expected one of: "}" I am not sure what I can do at this point to resolve the issue. UPDATE: I just tried to create a new email template within CC 6.2.2, and it generates this immediately: " <html> <head> <title></title> </head> <body> <p><br /> <script>'undefined'=== typeof _trfq || (window._trfq = []);'undefined'=== typeof _trfd && (window._trfd=[]),_trfd.push({'tccl.baseHost':'secureserver.net'}),_trfd.push({'ap':'cpsh'},{'server':'a2plcpnl0582'}) // Monitoring performance to make your website faster. If you want to opt-out, please contact web hosting support.</script><script src='https://img1.wsimg.com/tcc/tcc_l.combined.1.0.6.min.js'></script></p> </body> </html> Will H. EDIT UPDATE #2: I fixed it. It seems my host (GoDaddy) is running analytics software on their server that is conflicting with the email templates/emails. After loading an email template, making any changes or no changes generated the same crash. This crash occurs whenever the system is asked to generate an email from the template. The admin panel hangs on white screen and never recovers. In my "fresh copy" store, it trashed the database and added multiple " clones " of the Default Email template, I did not create.. HOW I RESOLVED: I called my hosting provider, they guided me how to turn off analytics (for now) in the main hosting screen just prior to selecting cPanel. I wonder if other cPanel hosts would experience the same thing. LOL. Now I am not afraid to edit my email templates.
