    Default Config Files for Admin

    I am upgrading from 1.3.9h to 1.5.1 and have got the db uploaded and changed the configure.php files. I can browse to the web site but I cannot browse to the Admin log on I just get the message:

    WARNING: An Error occurred, please refresh the page and try again.

    I have double checked the db configures and they are the same as the db configure.php for the web site. So I think I may have a directory problem.

    If my Admin directory is www.website.com/zencart/admin123 then I am a bit confused as to what should go in the following:

    define('DIR_WS_ADMIN', preg_replace('#^' . str_replace('-', '\-', $p1) . '#', '', dirname($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'])) . '/');

    define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/zencart/');

    define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_ADMIN', preg_replace('#^' . str_replace('-', '\-', $p2) . '#', '', dirname($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'])) . '/');

    define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/zencart/');

    and

    define('DIR_FS_ADMIN', realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/../') . '/');

    define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/website/public_html/zencart/');

    I have tried adding 'admin123' in the 3 places following 'zencart' above but then I just get a blank screen when pointing to the Admin Login page.

    Can anyone please help with this?

    then I am a bit confused as to what should go in the following:
    Code:
    define('DIR_WS_ADMIN', preg_replace('#^' . str_replace('-', '\-', $p1) . '#', '', dirname($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'])) . '/');
    This is code that automatically gets the name of your secret_admin folder.
    And doesn't need any changing.

    Thanks for your help.

    OK I have checked the log files and it appears the problem is with a table called 'dbprefix'_admin_pages not existing.

    I have checked my db with PHPMyAdmin and it certainly isn't there, but my db is a restore of a 1.3.9h version and that table doesn't exist there either.

    So please what do I do next?

    That table does exist in a stock Zencart installation (1.5.1). My guess is that it's part of the Admin Profiles function that was added to 1.5 and it sounds like you restored a 1.3.9 DB, but the 1.5 files are still looking for that table. You may nave to upgrade your DB to 1.5.

    Yes you are correct so then the question is how do I upgrade the db tables when I can't get access to the Admin function?

    OK but when it says "run zc_install" I don't understand where I run it from. I thought these scripts were run from within the Admin function but if I can't get into the Admin function then where do I run the script from?

    You run zc_install by navigating to that folder URL in your browser.
    www.yoursite.com/zc_install/
    assuming you have Zen Cart residing in the domain root.
    Or if it is in a subfolder
    www.yoursite.com/your_zencart_folder/zc_install/

    This requires that you (still) have the zc_install folder on your site. It needs to be deleted after installation/upgrading is completed.

    OK thanks now I understand, I appreciate your help.

    However I have installed 1.5.1 from my hosting company and it does not contain the folder zc_install. Therefore I have downloaded 1.5.1 from the ZenCart site and ftp'd the folder across.

    When I run it I get a warning that the file /admin/includes/configure.php does not exist - it will not because my installation does not have a folder called 'admin' but an admin folder named with a long list of letters and numbers automatically created by my hosting company installation of 1.5.1

    Therefore do I need to change this folder name back to 'admin' to run zc_install and then change it back afterwards? Are there any other implications of doing this, or should I be doing it another way?
