The e-commerce.

Would you recommend this book for a newbie?


Recommended Posts

It's called "osCommerce Users Manual V. 2.0: A Guide for Store Owners and Website Developers" and it's written by Kerry Watson. I'm trying to find the right book before I start my online business. I'm not very familiar with web development beyond a little html and css that I learned when I started blogging. Anyway is the book worth it?

I haven't bought this book but looking at its description on amazon I think it's one I'd like to buy.


The ones I have were published at the time version MS2.2 was around but can still be useful in many aspects:

-The Programmers' Guide to osCommerce: The nuts and bolts of osCommerce customization by Myles O'Reilly

-Building Online Stores with osCommerce: Beginner Edition: A step by step introduction to osCommerce by David Mercer

-Building Online Stores with osCommerce: Professional Edition: Learn how to design, build, and profit from a sophisticated online business by David Mercer


As for books on PHP, I find these to be very helpful also for complete beginners:

-PHP 5 / MySQL Programming for the Absolute Beginner by Andy Harris

-PHP/MySQL Programming for the Absolute Beginner by Andy Harris

I find it hard to use google on my laptop when I'm taking a bath, I much prefer a david mercer book :D


I do not use the responsive bootstrap version since i coded my responsive version earlier, but i have bought every 28d of code package to support burts effort and keep this forum alive (albeit more like on life support).

So if you are still here ? What are you waiting for ?!


Find the most frequent unique errors to fix:

grep "PHP" php_error_log.txt | sed "s/^.* PHP/PHP/g" |grep "line" |sort | uniq -c | sort -r > counterrors.txt
