Records being deleted in Order Details table

Records being deleted in Order Details table

hi there, i thought my syste, was woking properly until i started looking at a order history page. What it is doing now is that the "orders" table in mysql is populating normally however the Orderdetails table is only recording the most recent order. It is actually deleting the previous order. Another big thing is that the OrderID column in the Orders table is supposed to match the DetailOrderID in the orderdetails table but they do not match. It is now actually writing them as "0" (number zero). I know this worked for a while.

Any ideas as to why it would stop recording to the orderdetails table?

I guess the orderdetails table is supposd to copy this number over or should i be creating a proper invoice number somehow?

I have attached my cart files to have a look but I have no idea why it would stop working.

Hi there, you dont seem to have attached any files to your thread?

I may know why its only populating the most recent orders. (providing you are using the ecart "store cart details in database) this is actually in essence an update behaviour - so if the sessions on that particular order are still live then if you place another order they will be overwriting the previous test this, do an order, then close ALL occurances of your browser (this will kill the sessions) then go back to website, place a second order...if you now see a second order being saved then you know its to do with the to solve that issue all you would need to do is on your "order success page" just after the HTML tag just kill all sessions.

for your other issue would need to see your files.

Database not populating

Hi Chris,

Funny I did go through the upload process. I have attached all the base caart files now.

To address what you have said, the order system has been shut down several times and started up and is still overwriting. I went as far this time as to shut down my computer, reboot and place a new order. It simply over wrote what was there.

A little while back however using the forum i was having an issue that the cart was killing not only the store's session but also the login session as well. So somewhere with teh help of one of your programmers I was able to build some kill session and restore session code in the checkout success page.

// Initialize the session.
// If you are using session_name("something"), don't forget it now!

//store the user session
$MM_Username = $_SESSION['MM_Username'];
$pass_word = $_SESSION['pass_word'];
$user_name = $_SESSION['user_name'];

// Unset all of the session variables.
$_SESSION = array();

// If it's desired to kill the session, also delete the session cookie.
// Note: This will destroy the session, and not just the session data!
if (ini_get("session.use_cookies")) {
$params = session_get_cookie_params();
@setcookie(session_name(), '', time() - 42000,
$params["path"], $params["domain"],
$params["secure"], $params["httponly"]

// Finally, destroy the session.

//reset user session
$_SESSION['MM_Username'] = $MM_Username;
$_SESSION['pass_word'] = $pass_word;
$_SESSION['user_name'] = $user_name;

But I am sure this wouldn't the issue. I have also uploaded the structure of the mysql database if that helps look at that end.

Items being deleted in table

Hi Jason,

As I await your call I have been doing some reviewing and here is where I am at now. I cleared the tables and and reviewed the cart. What is happening now is that the orders are being populated (See Orders_tanle.JPG) and assigned an order ID number. however it looks like the OrderID is simply not being posted to the orderDetails table in the DetailOrderID column (see orderdetails_Table.JPG. Hope this helps get closer to an answer.

on the confirm page, look for the following line:

$_SESSION[$WA_sessionName] = mysql_insert_id();

and change it to:

$_SESSION[$WA_sessionName] = mysql_insert_id($WA_connection);

it may be in a couple of places.
