Hi, everyone newbie here!!!

I have this two years free hosting, so the thing that I have access to is the Cpanel and admin on my www.mysite/admin oscommerce 2005, I tried to update it with the current osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2 Release Candidate 2a, using SmartFTP, I though that if I drag and drop the folder with the matching folder, for example image to image ect..I did that from catalog in my computer to the public_html, after that I couldn't access my admin site, i can put the username and password, but right after that it give me this Error.
and by the way the website does work , just admin problems, thanks

did you update the database?
if you just copied over everything it's possible you copied something you should have copied over

i mean the config files

you copies over your configure.php files from he original install - Ether "install" the new one and overwrite the existing DB or create a new one in the cpanel and use that.

Or upload both of your old configure.php files back to the new install....
Then install the new database in cpanel/phpmyadmin with the oscommerce.sql file...
