The e-commerce.

Two Part Question

Recommended Posts

I am knew to web development. I thought I would get that out of the way first. I am running xampp on windows xp.

 

My first question is a simple one. How do I set user permissions for the confuration.php file?

 

 

My second question is abit more complicated. I have rearranged much of oscommerce to a less bland format. I am running into a bit of trouble in lining up the left column. Here is a link to my site...>http://www.owpt.biz As you can see the left column is off quite a bit. That flash image's width is 770 and I need both the center and the left column to fit within that. I have messed around with this for some time now and have done nothing but completly mess it up. It has taken me along time to get this far. Any help would be great.

 

 

Thanks in advance.

In windows xp, right click the configure.php file and check the 'read only' box.

 

You can set your whole shop to 770 width (or any width you choose), to match your header with this

It's a quick and easy install.

For permissions, right click on the file with any ftp program and chose permissions or chmod. Or check your hosts control panel for a way to do it, usually through the file manager.

 

For the layout, the problem is most likley just that your logo is a set width while your page is not. Try installing one of the center shop contributi8ons and setting the width to around 780.

To your second question.

In the body section of the style sheet in the catalog directory add these 2 lines.

 

BODY {

background: #ffffff;

color: #000000;

margin-right: 50px;

margin-left: 50px;

}

 

 

Just adjust the sizes until the page lines up properly.
