Hybrid Ecommerce
August 16, 2022
osCommerce brings a new type of Ecommerce platform to the market - a so called Hybrid Ecommerce. So what is Hybrid Ecommerce? We see it to be the best of both worlds - an open source (and free) Ecommerce solution that is also hosted as if it was SaaS (or EaaS - Ecommerce as a Service). This means users (businesses and developers) do not need to worry about hosting requirements and at the same time have full access to the source code and can change or implement any custom features, integrations, etc. Of course, it is always possible to host osCommerce on your own server! It is just so much easier (and quite likely more cost effective!) to use osCommerce's own hosting solutions.  Hybrid Ecommerce from osCommerce Users can choose to have osCommerce installed for free on one of our servers to try osCommerce before use.  Once satisfied with its features, speed, robustness - they can choose to move to a paid osCommerce hosting account or to download and use osCommerce site on their own server. Move to an osCommerce-managed server is done automatically. Server environment is optimised for osCommerce, allowing it to give the best performance. It is also managed and upgraded with the latest server software. Most importantly, osCommerce installation can be automatically updated to the latest version of osCommerce (and Applications) as well. Any customisations, done right, will stay but all the standard modules and the core of osCommerce will be regularly updated, bringing fixes, changes, new features. Full FTP and mySQL access are offered to businesses and developers should they require such.   ...

osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 2

We proudly present the immediate availability of the second milestone release of osCommerce 2.2, which is on demonstration at the LinuxTag 2003 event in Karlsruhe, Germany.

The Milestone 2 release contains numerous updates to strengthen the security on both client and server side of operations.

The "Security and Privacy Proposal" was realized to strengthen security on the client side, whos main purpose is to protect the clients session ID. This includes a 'force cookie usage' feature which prevents the session ID from appearing on the url, a feature to prevent search engine spiders from generating session IDs which were stored as part of their index, and client IP address, browser (user agent), and secure session ID (for SSL servers) verification.

The "Strip and Parse Proposal" and security audit updates were realized to strengthen the security on the server side, which includes parsing all user input for storage and display purposes, and having removed most PHP notice messages when error reporting has been set to 'E_ALL'.

Numerous layout changes have also been made throughout the Catalog to improve the user interface and experience for the customer, and the Installation and Update module has been updated with a new theme layout for a more simplified procedure for store administrators.

Shared SSL servers are now properly supported, with the possibility to fine tune session and cookie related parameters for both normal HTTP server and secure HTTPS servers.

We'd like to thank the community for the continuing support, with each Milestone release more exciting than the last release, we look forward to bringing you the remaining Milestone releases that will lead to a finalized and rock solid 2.2 release.

A complete feature guide for osCommerce 2.2 will be presented when osCommerce 2.2 is finalized and released to the public.
