adding a contribution

Hi all,

 

Can anyone help me please?

 

I have found a contribution that I would like to add to my oscommerce cart. The contribution is the article manager. I have downloaded the files and noticed that there was a folder called admin and extra, along with some files.

 

I would be grateful if someone could clarify if there is an option within the admin of oscommerce to import these files and folders or do I need to do so through ftp.

 

Best Regards. Barry

You have to use FTP. There is an install file in there as well. Read over everything first. Ignore the extras folder untill you have a sucessfull base install. You may also have to download the files for use with SQL5. Find out what SQL you are using first, look in your admin under tools/server config . You will have to use phpMyadmin to insert some SQL code for this contribution.

BAck up everything and expect to crash things first. But dont worry as long as you back up. You wont learn how to install anything if you dont crash a few times first. Google anything you have questions about first.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the prompt reply. I have just read the install file and although it explains how to do things like phpadmin etc I do not see any mention of where the actual file and folders should be ftp'ed.

 

Do you have any ideas?

If the files are in the admin folder put them up on your site in the admin folder.

 

Say there is a file in the admin/includes folder put it up on your site in the admin/includes folder.
