The e-commerce.



Recommended Posts

Ive just started to install Oscommerce. I have got so far, but am unable to find certain file now.


I have since cleared it all off and started again. I now am unable to install any files into the correct location.


Would anyone be able to help me with a location map.




Catalog - Public Folder

Install - Install

Admin - Admin.


I am using a Free Host for this. Do i need to create a special directory for these to go into or can i just use the root??

As you are using a free service I recommend that you install into the root of your website (where your website files go). Upload the CONTENTS of the 'catalog' folder, but not the folder wrapper itself. On full domain hosting your website would be located at http://www.yourdomain.com and not at http://www.yourdomain.com/catalog (which it would be if you upload the catalog folder wrapper itself).


Inside the 'catalog' folder are other folders, including 'admin' and 'install'. So to install your store you'd type in http://pathtoyoursite.com/install


'admin' would be located at http://pathtoyoursite.com/admin


Don't forget that you have to create a blank database first.
