I had a well functioning OsCommerce store set up in 2003. Over the recent years, some functions have ceased although nothing critical. Now it does not do what it is supposed to do, ie, provide the ability to download mp3s. Error messages keep popping up at various stages.
Some of my customers seem to have no problem and some can't do a thing. As income has fallen off, I suspect the number of people having significant troubles is fairly high.
Also, there has always been an error when people order roughly 10 or more downloads at a time. Shipping charges are charged. This is a minor problem. I know where to set shipping charges and don't know why this would happen.
There also is an error for some people when they try to download. The software says the download is called "download.php" and not the name of the file. I have always suspected this to be a bug in the program and hence my request for an upgrade to the most recent stable OsCommerce.
I would like the problem fixed and OsCommerce upgraded. For all I know, an upgrade might be part of the solution but I'll leave that to the determination of the freelancer.
I am lucky enough to have gotten it fully functioning the first time around in 2003.
Another factor that may be part of the problem is that I have to back up my web site myself because it is so huge, 50 gigs. I have used WS_FTP's synchronization method and not backup and that may be a real mistake. Not sure why but it is when I switched to the new server where the people refused to back up my site that the problems began.
I am not exactly sure how this Freelancer works but I am guessing I let you know the web site after we strike some kind of agreement. If I am wrong, I'll send the URL and the exact problem will become obvious.
I don't know if this is a difficult problem to solve and I hope my pricing as appropriate. Bottom line, I must get it running.
Thanks in advance.
