Its about a open cart issue.

My drop down list to define my order statusses are empty.
This in the system>settings>option Tab (Order Status and Complete Order Status) as in my Paypal (Standard) Settings and probabliy on other places to.

Have been googling for a long time and i find many people with same problem but no solutions.
I gues it has something to do with the order_status database table being empty...

I could do reinstal( iguess ?), but that means a loss of many many hours.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have done some searching and I have found some individuals who have also had this issue, unfortunately, I could not locate a resolution for the issue. OpenCart does, however, have an error log that can be looked through to get some more information on the issue. To get to it, go to System > Error Logs. Try taking a look there for any more information as to what could be causing the issue. Let us know if you have any questions about what may be in the error logs.

In the mean time i have solved the issue, but i don't have a clue on what the reason my be!

What i have done.
Its seemed to be an empty table in de oc database (oc_order_status). Why it was empty i don't know.
I have installed a new opencart on an other webspace and exported the db to .sql file.
That way i can import any table population as from scratch!
After the import my statusses were back in the drop down list!
Problem solved.

Anyway tx for the reaction!
Guess this might be a great tip for other people.
If anyone should know the reason for the empty table i would be glad to hear it.

Hello Contra,

Thanks for letting us know you solved this issue. I'm not sure what would have caused a blank entry in the oc_order_status table, possibly a temporary database connection problem or something of that nature.

Please let us know if you have any further questions at all.
