i was able to see the website the first time i loaded it but when i clicked on something it all went downhill from there. seems to me like it has forgot which language i am using, something wrong with session variables ?

This problem is in the session handling, nothing to do with $language not being set.

It is fixed in version 2.3.3 of oscommerce

application_top.php find:

// set the language
if (!tep_session_is_registered(‘language’) || isset($HTTP_GET_VARS[‘language’])) {

replace with:
// set the language
if (!tep_session_is_registered(‘language’) || isset($HTTP_GET_VARS[‘language’]) || empty($language)) {

If you get other errors after that , it means the store needs a major upgrade of the store. you can use the contact us form to get it touch with us.

We have upgraded more than 100 plus stores for php 5.4 and other upgrade issues.
