    Default switching config.php files

    trying to move my dist-configure.php files to to configure.php files on ubuntu using putty. I'm not sure if I have the right way to do that. This is my command;
    /var/www/html/zencart# mv dist-configure.php target conf.php
    mv: target 'conf.php' is not a directory

    I have no idea what the correct command is, but my question is why are you wanting to do this. The dist-configures are only examples. The real configure files are created on the fly during installation.

    Those are only meant to be guides as to what the config files might look like after they are auto-created by the installation program.
    Much easier to let the ZC_install folder do its thing.

    I didn't rename the file when I installed zc and my config.php file is empty

    If you correctly installed ZC, you should have two configure.php files that are the ones required for ZC to work properly.

    includes/configure.php
    YOUR_ADMIN/includes/configure.php

    Some systems do not like 777. Your config files are probably at 444 or 644. 644 is fine for editing. 444 keeps out the script kiddies.
