    Hello. Thank you for loading Zen Cart™.
    You are seeing this page for one or more reasons:
    This is your first time using Zen Cart™ and you haven't yet completed the normal Installation procedure.
    If this is the case for you, Click here to begin installation.


    Your /includes/configure.php and/or /admin/includes/configure.php file contains invalid path information and/or invalid database-connection information.
    If you recently edited your configure.php files for any reason, or maybe moved your site to a different folder or different server, then you'll need to review and update all your settings to the correct values for your server.
    See the Online FAQ and Tutorials area on the Zen Cart™ website for assistance.


    To begin installation ...
    The Installation Documentation can be read by clicking here: Documentation
    Run zc_install/index.php via your browser.
    The Online FAQ and Tutorials area on the Zen Cart™ website will also be of value if you run into difficulties.

    The msg. tells you that things are not setup right. Best to start over but you don't have to upload all the files again.

    Also, seems this file is missing or file permissions are wrong:

    includes/configure.php
    The learning is in the doing.

    hi sorry to be a pain but i just reinstalled it all again and i get the same problem.
    now the instructions tell you to make a configure.php file and put them in /admin/includes and /incluses/ is this right? then it tells you to rename the /includes/dist-configure.php to configure.php and /admin/includes/dist-configure.php so this means there will be 2 configure.php files in each of these catagories yes? i am so confused i set all the cmods to 777 and i get nothing. i followed the instructions to the best of my ability im stuck.

    includes/dist-configure.php
    admin/includes/dist-configure.php

    For the above two files, I do believe there are instructions somewhere that mention you have to "rename them" after you upload them; remove the 'dist-' part.

    Ignore the instructions to create configure.php files. Just rename the dist-configure.php files in their respective folders to configure.php and change the permissions, then start the install.

    You wouldn't be allowed to have two files in the same directory with the same file name, anyway.

    As far as I can go, without overwriting your database, it looks OK.

    I think that the problems you're having are resulting from corrupted files, or files which aren't uploading.

    Do you have CPanel or some other control panel with a File Manager included?
