Error while installing?

Well Ive checked all the permissions, and they are exactly what they say in the instructions, everything else should be fine.

what does this mean?


Username and/or password are incorrect.

now getting this error [URL=“”][/URL]

open, config.local.php

find this

// Developer configuration file

if (file_exists(DIR_ROOT . ‘/local_conf.php’)) {

include(DIR_ROOT . ‘/local_conf.php’);


and underneath put this

define(‘TABLE_PREFIX’, ‘cscart_’);



this is info from this thread



did this but still getting same error :-?

Warning: parse_ini_file(D:/Hosting/6894085/html/Shop/skins/basic/manifest.ini) [function.parse-ini-file]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in D:\Hosting\6894085\html\Shop\core\fn.common.php on line 3000

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in D:\Hosting\6894085\html\Shop\core\fn.common.php on line 3020

anyone? :frowning:

Hi, you need to tell us how your PHP is set to run on your server.

I think this error is because you have the wrong file permissions set.

Ask your hosting provided if your PHP is running as CGI, phpSuExec, SuPHP, or FCGI or as DSO.

If your PHP is run as CGI, phpSuExec, SuPHP, or FCGI or as DSO then you need to ensure you have folders as 755 and files as 644

If it’s DSO then you should have your permissions set as per [url][/url]

Hope this helps.


thanks for your post, I’ve just switched to HostGator so transferring all my files and starting again with the CS Cart install, will check all my file permissions again, and hopefully it works :slight_smile:

If you haven’t already, check with them how they run PHP. If it’s shared hosting tou are on then you will probably have to ignore the file recommendations that CS Cart provide as they will probably break your install.

If you ask Hostgator they should be able to tell you. Come back on here and we can confirm what permissions you should set on your files.

hostgator fixed everything! :slight_smile:
