Hey everyone,

Well, I'm pretty new to cart-systems, as I've never had to build one for a client until now.  I enjoy the interface (front and backend) of OpenCart, and would like to use it as my clients online shopping cart.

My main problem is with installation.  My client uses GoDaddy as a host and, from what I've read on multiple forums regarding PHP and Database use, GoDaddy seems like it can be a potential nightmare for things like this.

My current error is (when trying to view my store-specific URL):
Error: PHP 5.0 or above is required.
Error: file_uploads must be enabled.
Error: MySQL extension must be loaded.
Error: GD extension must be loaded
.


Now I know that I'm using PHP 5.0 server-side, so I'm uncertain as to why this error is showing.  As for the other 3 errors, I'm uncertain at this point.  I've looked in my control-panel and such for ways to enable file_uploads, load MySQL extensions, and load GD extensions, but to no avail.

If anyone would be kind enough to try and assist me it would be greatly appreciated!
Again, I'm fairly new to this (online shopping carts and databases), so please bare with me.

***Note: FYI I've set up an empty database on my server that's all ready to go in PHP 5.0, and uploaded all the necessary files via FTP into a directory on my server named "store".  Also, I don't believe my client is interested in changing hosts...so I might have to make-due with what GoDaddy offers.

Thanks in advance for any help,
astornfleshlay

I've personally set one person up on a godaddy host and the basics should be working. The only major downfall was for things like Paypal IPN Callback not working with godaddy, but the PDT transfer will still work on the client side.

Can you create a file called phpinfo.php in your root path with the contents of:

Code: Select all

<?php phpinfo();?>
and give us the link so we can see some extra details

Thanks for the quick reply!

Okay, I've put the phpinfo.php into the root directory with the code specified.

Here's the link:

Let me know what you think would be best for this particular situation

Thanks,

Yea, be sure godaddy is setup for 5.x. Sometimes hosts will support it but it needs to be added to the htaccess to turn it on

google "php5 htaccess" for the command to do it

Hey,

Sorry I haven't got back sooner about my current problems.  My boss had me doing other things last week, so I couldn't get to these issues.

At this point in time, I'm still not up and running in PHP 5.x
I've added a line of code at the bottom of my .htaccess document, and it reads:
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php

I've placed this document in the root folder of the store (and, to be safe, in the root folder of my web hosting).
I still get the same errors.

The URL is:
http://www.pickersalley.com/store

I've searched a few things via Google, but haven't really come up with anything that helps.
Let me know if you have any other ideas for resolving this issue.

Thanks,
astornfleshlay

I think your best bet is to contact godaddy support with the errors and see if they can help enable them for you. Or find a new host that doesn't suck as bad as Godaddy
