Installing OS with Front Page 200


Guest

Recommended Posts

This will be my first shopping cart and I am clueless. I've been doing my client's webs with FP 2000 and some manual coding.

Do I have to use FTP to upload OSCom? If I FTP I'll corrupt the Front Page extensions on the existing site.

Otherwise I wouldn't know how to put the OS files INTO front page and get them to the proper directory.

I hope I am making sense here. Recap: How do I install and run OS with Front Page 2000.

I'd REALLY be grateful for help here. Thanks in advance.

osCommerce is written in PHP. FrontPage is used to edit HTML. To use FrontPage with osCommerce you would need to install STS (simple template system) and create a html template with FrontPage.

I looked up STS (simple template system) and I'm sorry, I don't know how to utilize it.

I know you all are much more advanced and that's where I am trying to go.

I'm needing a bit of a walk through. Can anyone assist?

My server offers no technical support in this area.

I need to set up OS to sell vitamins for a client and also to use his DVD commercial as a site intro.

Thanks.

It seems like you could upload the catalog directory with frontpage.

Thank you for answering but can someone tell me where to physically put the OS files into Front Page 2000 so that I can correctly upload them to the server. I'm sure once I can do that properly , I can figure out the rest. I really need help here. Thanks

I'm not sure? Can you navigate around your computer with frontpage and find the OSC catalog folder? Wouldn't the same as uploading any other file?

You can put it where you want. You can place all of the files from the catalog directory into the root of you website or you can upload the catalog folder to the root of your website. Then go to www.example.com or www.example.com/catalog to start the install.
