    Default How to fix admin

    Hello,

    I'm pretty new to zencart. I've been adding products to my store and today I tried to install the stock by attribute module. When I installed it I didn't think to change the admin folder name to the name that I'd changed my admin folder to, so I went back after the fact and moved the files from the new "admin" folder into my actual admin folder which is now under a different name. In doing this I overwrote some includes files and the order.php file and when I went to my admin panel it showed a fatal error. I reuploaded the original admin includes and orders.php folder and file, and now all I get is this screen

    "Hello. Thank you for loading Zen Cart™.
    You are seeing this page for one or more reasons:

    1. 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, you will need to upload the "zc_install" folder using your FTP program, and then run zc_install/index.php via your browser (or reload this page to see a link to it).

    2. 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 ...

    1. The Installation Documentation can be read by clicking here: Documentation
    2. You will need to upload the "zc_install" folder using your FTP program, and then run zc_install/index.php via your browser (or reload this page to see a link to it).
    3. The Online FAQ and Tutorials area on the Zen Cart™ website will also be of value if you run into difficulties."

    I used godaddy to install zencart the first time so I am really at a loss now. Any help is appreciated. The front end of the store still looks fine and I don't want to lose all the work I've done so far.

    Thanks in advance

    Because the admin of your site has no override folder you need to be very careful which files you add to it, and as with every mod or change you make you should do a backup first
    As it says on 5the page you have prob over written your admin config file, so you could try downloading the adminconfig file and check the settings contained in it, Although they are NOT the the same, the config file in your includes folder will have some of the same settings for ref ( remember to back up before you change anything! )
    regards
