Problems with installation
« on: May 09, 2020, 02:48:54 AM »
Hi,

This is on my office PC with XAMPP running.

When I extract the "abantecart-src-master.zip" downloaded directly from the AbanteCart site and extract it, there is no "static_pages" folder created inside the "install" folder.  I have tried extracting on three different PCs and they are all the same.

When I try to run the install using "localhost/AbanteCart" (which is the dir I copies the contents of the public_html folder in the .zip file to) I get a 404 error for this URL: "localhost/AbanteCart/install/static_pages/index.php?mode=admin"  There is no "static_pages" folder created inside the "install" folder, hence the error.

Anyone any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks,

Rob

Hello Rob,

The reason you get this error is because of some system error that caused redirect to "static_pages" but your static page is missing.
I suspect you did not copy entire code structure or copied in a wrong place.

To get started with AbanteCart much faster, I would suggest using docker instead.
https://hub.docker.com/r/abantecart/abantecart

If you intend to develop with AbanteCart, you can map the code to your local drive.

Hi, abantecart,

Sorry for the late reply - I hadn't set notifications in my profile!

I downloaded the latest version and all works well now, thanks.

Rob.
