Support » Fixing WordPress » new E-commerce 3.6.5 : installation problem

  • Hi! for my site I’d like to install e-commerce (the latest version). I downloded the extention and uploaded it in the plugin directory. When I Activated it, I got an error :

    Warning: mkdir(/homepages/35/d101559139/htdocs/creativesite-dev/wp-content/plugins/wp-shopping-cart/product_images/thumbnails/) [function.mkdir]: No such file or directory in /homepages/35/d101559139/htdocs/creativesite-dev/wp-content/plugins/wp-shopping-cart/install_and_update.php on line 1089

    Does anyone get the same error?
    Tanks for your help

  • Yes! I am having the exact same problem: Warning: mkdir(/home/lowglyce/public_html/members/wp-content/plugins/wp-shopping-cart/product_images/thumbnails/) [function.mkdir]: No such file or directory in /home/lowglyce/public_html/members/wp-content/plugins/wp-shopping-cart/install_and_update.php on line 1089
    This is on a site running WordPress 2.3.1. If you have found the answer, I would really like to know it!

    OK – The problem is fixed. It looks like there are two missing directories. Deactivate the plugin and put a directory called product_images in your wp-shopping-cart directory. Then, put another directory called thumbnails in the product_images directory. You should now be able to activate the plugin without any errors. Note: It might not be necessary to make the thumbnails directory, since it looks like this code is supposed to do that, but I decided not to take any chances. Good luck!

    Also the latest version 3.6.6 fixes this issue.

    Thanks to codecrazy for helping out!!!



    3.6.6 Works fine for me!!!
    Thanks !!!

    3.6.6 didn’t work for me trying to do a fresh install.

    I eventually narrowed it down to the lines that define the upload directories in wp-shopping-cart.php:

    $wpsc_category_dir = ABSPATH.”{$upload_path}/wpsc/category_images/”;

    For me atleast, the $upload_path already contains the ABSPATH, so it was creating a redundant directory structure. If I changed the lines

    $wpsc_category_dir = “{$upload_path}/wpsc/category_images/”;

    then it worked fine. Figured that out after hardcoding the $upload_path again to ‘wp-content/uploads’ worked as well.
