Hacked by someone in Eastern Europe

22 August 2007 - 08:34 PM

My cart config.php file was hacked and it caused the viewer to be redirected to a message board in Eastern Europe.

Even though I deleted that config.php file and uploaded the one on my computer, I still get either redirected again, or I get error messages about connecting with the database.

I am looking over the security questions discussed on this forum, and frankly, they are not very helpful. One answer says read the security section of the forum....which is where the questioner was when asking the question in the first place!

I have spent 6 months getting this cart ready for the client to use, if it is now going to be subject to a hacker - I have wasted my time, and the client is losing money.

I think the cs-cart developers need to be a lot more helpful (as one contributor wrote) on how we can protect our carts. Security attacks seem to be more and more common lately, and we need to know how to stop them.


Smarty error

31 July 2007 - 05:41 PM

I'm getting the following error:

Warning: Smarty error: unable to read resource: "auth_pages/login.tpl" in /home/httpd/**/**/httpdocs/cart/classes/templater/Smarty.class.php on line 1096

An earlier post siad that the user probably changed the name of something. Not true in this case. At least not that I recall. They also said to change skins and see if that made it work. How do you change skins if you can't login to the admin area?


can't unpack file

01 March 2007 - 07:12 PM

I don't usually have issues like this, but when I try to unpack the tgz file I just bought this is what I get:

If I do it on my computer it tells me:
"Unable to unarchive "cscart_v1.3.4-sp2.tgz" into "CS-Cart" (error 2 - No such file or directory).

It is sitting in the CS-Cart directory when I do this.

When I upload the tgz file to the server and put it in the cart folder I want it to work in - and then do the tar command on the server. When I do that I get this error:

tar -xzvf cscart_v1.3.4-sp2.tgz
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

So, needless to say, I am not getting very far with this installation.

I am on a Mac by the way...so don't give me Windows based responses (like using WinZip). I tried Stuffit to unpack the file on my computer, which has always been successful in the past with .tgz files.
