OsCommerce 2.3.1 hosting requirements


Recommended Posts

I have been running OsCommerce 2.3.1 in a testing environment (own virtualized server Debian+php5+mysql within my lan) and everything is fine.


Now I'm planning to deploy my configuration to a third party web hosting. And I have a doubt about web hosting requeriments:


OsCommerce Download page states these specs:


* PHP v4+ (PHP v5+ recommended)

* MySQL v3+ (MySQL v5+ recommended)


I know in terms of security, the best option would be a VPS type hosting. But my question is: Can OsCommerce v2.3.1 run in a "shared" web hosting configured through cPanel? If security issue are not prioritary -just using OsCommerce for "demo" purposes- shared hosting can be a technically valid option?


Thanks in advance,

V2.31 can be run on a shared hosting plan..(actually that is how a majority of osCommerce shops are run).
