osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Almost Done For Me?

Hello.

 

My Hosting service at Hostica has in my control panel a collection of what they call EasyApps. One of these is osCommmerce. I simply clicked install and I got this: Installed Applications. And sure enough, it looks like it's all there in my WS_FTP Pro. I'm reading the pdf documentation, and so far I haven't had to do a thing.

 

I always make things harder than they are. I hope not to do so in this case.

 

I'm most interested in a thread at Auction Module as I'm interested in selling some 50 of my artworks to make room on the walls in our little house for my new works. This Auction Module is going to take some work. But is it true that I'm pretty much set up?

 

And I like to see things. It says that my osCommerce is located at My osCommerce. I'd like to see what it looks like at the moment. I'll surely want to change the buttons etc. to integrate with my site. But when I enter that osCommerce URL in my browser it takes me here: osCommerce.

 

All this looks incredibly difficult. Yet so much is already installed. Am I making things more difficult than it is? I'm dying to see what it looks like so far. Can I do that yet?

 

Thanks much for looking at my post, and answers will be much appreciated.

 

Robert :thumbsup:

Hiya,

When you installed it from your Cpanel where you not given the choice of what to call it?

the Link to your site is here

http://tracyfineart.com/oscommerce2/catalog/index.php

for some reason yours is http:/// which is why you cannot see it.

This is as easy of as hard as you want it to be!!

Its fun tho

Regards

Nic

Many, if not most, hosts have the option to install oscommerce from the control panel. Unfortunately, it is almost always an outdated version and should be replaced.

 

If the shop is installed, you should be able to view it now. If your domain name is pointing to it, it is probably alredy ready for taking orders. You might want to verify that.

I'm sure the basic store is ready to go, but you will still need to setup the store configuration, shipping/returns, privacy notice, conditions of use, shipping, taxes, payment, products etc. through the admin. Don't forget to password protect the admin section.

 

Take your time, read all the documentation and when you have a question search the forum, more than likely it's already been asked and answered.

I have found something strange. It says in the documentation "Upload the catalog folder which includes the admin folder to your document root

(public_html, www, htdocs) using FTP."

 

I cannot find a public_html at all let alone a public_html, www, htdocs.

 

Can I simply make such a directory? And where would I create it? Is my root at tracyfineart.com? Or does this mean that I should have a public_html, www, htdocs in /tracyfineart.com/oscommerce2? If the latter, the same question applies. Should I create a public_html, www, htdocs there?

No, these are alternative names in the file system your host may be using. In ither words what you see on the internet as http:// or http:// in the file system looks like public.html or www, or htdocs
