The e-commerce.

Is PHP needed for this?


Recommended Posts



I was just wondering if after the installation and configuration of osCommerce i needed to download and upgrade to PHP5? I am just wondering because I am trying to find out how to change the theme/template/desing of the website I know that with php you can just upload a pre created theme and the whole theme changes. If not can some one please give me some tips on how to get started after the installation of osCommerce.

BTS is a real bugger - will make updating your shop difficult. STS isn't so bad (Simple Template System) and also does the job.


To answer your first query - osCom is based on PHP4 and the style/content are NOT separated, so it's not that easy as just uploading a new skin, it actually means code changes etc. All can be done but Firefox it ain't.
