    Default 7 Year old OscMAX store now only blank pages UPDATE

    UPDATE: Just completed a localhost virgin install on latest version xampp server and install went smoothly. Success page displayed and could go to new store. When I tried to go to the admin area all pages blank again. Catalog, admin....everything.



    Have a store using OscMAX for the last 7 years. Stopped working last week. Home page will display but all links create blank pages. Then when we try and return to homepage, it is blank too.

    Tried to create virgin install with latest version and stalled on "connection to database" on two different hosts we use. I noticed that the Mysql Extension had a red "minus" during system verification on install, but the message was that the server met the minimum requirements for installation.

    Any thoughts, suggestions or referrals to voodoo priests would be greatly appreciated.

    Most likely it is because you are using PHP 5.6 with osCmax 2.5.3. If you have the option, either upgrade to osCmax 2.5.4 or downgrade to php 5.3 or 5.4 to see if that fixes the issue.

    If that is not possible, turn on error reporting and printing the errors to the screen. See this page on how to do that:
    v2.5:faq – osCmax Documentation Wiki


    Then when you can see the errors printed to the screen, you should be able to track down and fix them.

    OK. Thanks. It's weird because of this:
    1) close all browser windows
    2) reopen new browser window
    3) call up website and main page displays correctly
    4) any and every link if clicked returns a blank page
    5) however, if i copy any link address to my clipboard, close browser and reopen and paste link, that page display perfectly.

    Weird. I am requesting a php downgrade to 5.2

    I will also try to upgrade to 2.5.4

    Thanks again

    I am actually using ver 2.5 RC1. I don't know where i got the other version from.

    Do I need to do each upgrade in order to bring my OLD version current?
    Which version would I start with? I don't see one for 2.5 RC1?

    Ouch! 2.5RC1 is long past its expiration date.

    RC1 was a release candidate, so there is no upgrade in the automated system for it. You would have to manually upgrade to 2.5.0 I think, then you could run the upgrade scripts. Hold off on that for now, as there may be a simpler, quicker solution.

    I would recommend enabling error output to the screen per the wiki instructions and seeing what the problem is first. Chances are it is a quick couple of file changes to get things working again, and not a full scale upgrade. When you have an error message for us, post back and I can tell you what needs to be done.

    This is CRAZY. I turned on error reporting like they said in the wiki and now all the pages display correctly along with this error message:

    Notice: Undefined offset: 8192 in /homepages/37/d272372839/htdocs/FS/includes/kiss_error_handler.php on line 178

    This is CRAZY. I turned on error reporting like they said in the wiki and now all the pages in the catalog display correctly along with this error message:

    The admin files, not so much:

    That is a pretty easy fix I think.

    Just need to edit 2 files: catalog/includes/application_top.php and /catalog/admin/includes/application_top.php

    You need to replace the language set code, as it doesn't work on PHP 5.6.

    Here is the code that needs to be replaced in both files:

    Code:
    // set the language 
     if (!tep_session_is_registered('language') || isset($_GET['language'])) {


    Replace it with this and your site may start working properly again:

    Code:
    // set the language
      if (!tep_session_is_registered('language') || isset($_GET['language']) || strlen(trim($_SESSION['language'])) <1 ) {

    That should fix the Fatal error.

    Fantastic...catalog works perfectly.

    Admin returns these errors:
