osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.3.4

26th September 2013 by Harald Ponce de Leon

osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.3.4 is a general maintenance release focusing on improving core features and the Database Tables "Convert to UTF-8" action introduced in the previous release.

This release is in preparation of and building up to v2.3.4.


  • MySQL Error Functions (Harald)
    Don't pass a null parameter to the MySQL error functions otherwise PHP will display a warning message.
  • UTF-8 Conversion (Harald)
    Also manually convert existing data records to UTF-8 and detect encodings to prevent double encodings. Allow a dry-run to show which queries would be performed.
  • LC_NUMERIC Locale (Harald)
    As LC_ALL is now being used to set the locale, some languages other than English were using commas in float/decimal values which conflicted with MySQL. LC_NUMERIC is now set and forced to the system locale after the main language file has loaded.
