The Cart Is Empy



I'm having the same problem as Steven did with the shopping cart not updating when I run it on my test server. I applied the same instruction that you gave him. But unfortunately it's not work in my case.

I've tried it with both pc's that I'm building & testing the eCart site on. WinXP Prof. & VISTA.

Do you have any other ideas that my help me to fix this problem so that I can move forward?

Thank you,

The Cart Is Empy

I found a solution to one of the causes why the shopping cart would indicate being empty during local server testing at oreilly[dot]com PHP knowledge database.

In my case I follow upon a key word posted earlier by Jason Byrner relating to Session Management.

Ensure that the sesson_start() setting in the PHP.ini file are correct

The path should be: session.save_path = "C:\php\temp"

The sesson_start() should be: session.use_cookies = 1
* make sure the semicolon at the beginning of the line has been removed to enable session_start.

Ensure the 'temp' directory exist in your PHP directory.

OK, Glad to hear you found the solution. I am attaching a php script that can be used to test session management on your server. since the cart contents are stored in session variables, it is vital that session management be working correctly on your server.
