Moved PowerStore to subfolder and Admin pages wont load everything else works.

Moved PowerStore to subfolder and Admin pages wont load everything else works.

I uploaded Powerstore to a subfolder one level down called shop.
I had to tweak the links from

<?php require_once( "../WA_Globals/WA_Globals.php" ); ?>
<?php require_once( "WA_Globals/WA_Globals.php" ); ?>

<a href="../careers.php">
<a href="careers.php">

(just an example)

so the entire site works except:

Admin Area, i get this error:

Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'WA_ValidationToolkit/WAVT_Scripts_PHP.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /homepages/43/d237219477/htdocs/komsec/shop/Admin/index.php on line 1

and the user login / logout page
when i log in or log out it refreshes to a blank page no source at all no error either.

$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "http://www.******.com/shop/" ;
$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "/shop/";
$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/shop/";

Ive fried my brain tinkering with code trying to get it going.
any ideas would help

The 'require_once' paths at the top of the pages that are in the Admin folder will all begin with:


<?php require_once("../WA_
<?php require_once('../Connections
<?php require_once( "../WA_


If they're in the Admin folder, they have to be looking outside of it for the required files.

So assuming that all of the files and folders that came out of your downloaded PowerStore folder are placed in the same folder on your remote server called 'Shop', then you shouldn't need to change the paths in any of them (I think?). I believe they have their own internal integrity, i.e. are all relative to each other inside the same folder.

The only link(s) you will need to make will be from your (non-store)'s home page to the Shop index.php page (or have your site-root index page redirecting to the Shop/index.php page).

Your WA_Globals looks fine to me . . .

Dreamweaver killed the clickity mouse

im hoping a moderator can just delete this thread.
im not sure how but when i was working on the site locally and created the shop subfolder moved everything there and let dreamweaver auto update the links and i inserted a some code in main.dwt template and updated the files. i believe thats when all link hell broke loose
im finding Template/index.php links
and ../../../ links arrggg.

im pretty much going line by line checking the 6000 files :o

Not to worry, Andre.

Paths issues are one of the major causes of headaches around here.

Have you done much style tweaking to your PowerStore pages? Sometimes it makes sense - even for your own peace of mind - just to start with a fresh copy. Now that you know you can quickly redo the WA_Globals.php file and the localhost.php file in the Connections folder, (or use the old ones - as long as they go in the same place) it would put your mind at rest if you just uploaded fresh, all of it to the Shop folder. Make sure you have the most recent version of the download - I think its 1.0.2.

Not sure if you feel this may be an option for you, - either way, please post back with any queries.
