General Discussion / Code of Conduct Proposal
« on: March 27, 2017, 01:57:11 PM »
Please check out this proposal for a "Code of Conduct" for these forums. Suggestions and alterations of course are welcome.
Code of Conduct

As Bill and Ted reminded us, “Be excellent to each other!”

Be respectful of all members at all times. This means please use etiquette and politeness. Treat people with kindness and gentleness. If you do this the rest of the code of conduct won't need more than a cursory mention.

By registering and participating in ABANTECART Forum discussions you agree to this Code of Conduct. If you are unable to agree you have the right not to participate in forum discussions at any time.

This is your community. Most people have a common sense feel for what is and what is not appropriate in a forum and you folks generally do a great job of policing yourselves. We do, however, need to have a few set policies for everyone to refer to when the need arises.

While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible where acceptable, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or web-master (except for posts by these people) and they will not be held liable.

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated material or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing any of these may lead to you being temporarily or permanently banned from these forums (and your service provider may also be informed). Your IP address is collected, as is your method of connection, including operating system and browser.

No warranty is expressed nor implied regarding this service. It is open sourced community responding to each other. Please join us to help us make this the best place you can for discussing ABANTECART.

General Discussion / Forum NOTIFY
« on: March 17, 2017, 06:15:05 AM »
Dear Moderators / Forum Admin
can we please have NOTIFY on by default? I mean, if we are starting a discussion, then we want to know when someone else is talking, and so it should be default instead of remembering to click Notify for each thread.

More discussion about this for SMF (this forum engine) here:

Installation and Configuration / NGINX configuration
« on: March 17, 2017, 05:47:14 AM »
This is not a question, but rather a helper for anyone else out there that may prefer to develop on NGINX in their localhost;
My AC version is 1.2.9, laptop running Mintlinux 18.1 with Nginx 1.10 and PHP-FPM 7 and Mariadb.
Note , because it is in localhost, and I need speed, there is no SSL configuration. Ask if you need help with that.
Also, I have nginx running as me , so it is capable of writing log files to where it easiest for me to get them!

So, my /etc/nginx/sites-available/default has this added to it:

Code: [Select]
server {

        listen 80;

        access_log /home/onyx/logs/abantecart.log;
        error_log /home/onyx/logs/abantecart_error.log ;

        # root is AbanteCart's public_html directory
        root /home/onyx/htdocs/abantecart;
        index index.php index.html index.htm;

        # Prevent directory listing
        autoindex off;

        # rules applied in root of our config
        location / {

                # include AbanteCart rules
                try_files $uri $uri/ $uri.php @abantecart_rules;

                # php settings (may differ on your server)
                location ~ \.php$ {
                        #fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
#change this to suit your setup for fastcgi!!
                        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
                        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_NAME     $fastcgi_script_name;


                        include fastcgi_params;


        # rewrites our query strings properly for AbanteCart
        location @abantecart_rules {
                rewrite ^(.*)\?*$ /index.php?_route_=$1 last;

        # No direct access allowed for .tpl files
        location ~ \.tpl {
                deny all;


Then in /etc/hosts you will need
Code: [Select]
Don't forget you need to edit these as Superuser, and then restart the nginx server with
Code: [Select]
sudo service nginx restart
Questions and comments welcome

General Discussion / Forum Smileys

Dear Moderators,
I want to offer the very helpful folk that run this forum a little light relief in the form of new Smileys that can be used by anyone on the forum...

They are free, there is no advertising, I don't get anything from you using them, so go ahead, copy into the forum engine, or just leave a sticky link.

Installation and Configuration / DB_DRIVER
« on: March 12, 2017, 03:41:24 PM »
I am having trouble installing latest version on localhost, where I do all my dev work;
LinuxMint18.1 with Nginx and PHP7-FPM with MariaDB.
I get to /install/index.php?rt=install&runlevel=1 after submitting the config form, and it starts the progress scroller, then this:

Following error has occurred during installation:
Name   Info
10000::database error
Error: Could not load database file DB_DRIVER! in /home/onyx/htdocs/AbanteCart/public_html/core/lib/db.php on line 46

Config.php is writeable.
I have tried by Mysqli and PDO options for database, but it is still just using the POST field name DB_DRIVER to search for the database driver...wot the?
