The e-commerce.

entering server information


Recommended Posts

Good Morning,

I have a few questions regarding setup. I am very new to e-commerce development and osCommerce. I am reading through the manual and I see enter "webserver root directory" "HTTP Cookie Domain" and "HTTP Cookie Path". My online store name is www.greatideagiftstore.com. I am currently using Network Solutions to host. I know that my site is in a folder called "htdocs/store". That's all I am sure of at this point. Can someone please help me decipher this? I probably did not explain this very well, so please let me know if you have questions. Thanks in advance for all your help. :)
