I am having trouble getting easy populate to install correctly.

As I don't absolutely know what the end result should be, excuse me if I am not clear.

I download EP csv. That I get right

I upload all the files to their correct places. And create a tempEP directory.

So, far so good. In tools I can see an easy populate box so I click on it. I get a message saying that the filelist.php file can not be found.

I wonder if I need to do the sql patch so try that which results in a large which results in an error ( I'll paste that at the bottom)


Well when I look at EP the following becomes evident.

The tempEP directory is not recognised. Files EP creates are stored in the root of the shop (ie mydomain/shop/) So, I think AAAAHHHHAAAA and try and put the filelist.php at that level rather than the tempEP folder.

Well, that makes EP a bit more functional. I can save files to that location and load files from that location. But the EP interface is still messed up.

Also, having read around the forum I think that I should have a menu entry in the configure menu. Is this cor rect?

Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks
