The e-commerce.

Choices; what version of OS to go with...


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I starting up a shopping system, and have decided to go OS Commerce. I am having problems though, on deciding which version to install?


2.1 release; stable, but old


2.2 Snapshot; up to date, but potentially unstable


2.2 Milestone 1; up to date, most likely stable


At the moment, I am thinking of the 2.2 MS 1. It is up to date with the new features including I believe a much easier web-based installer which would be easier for me. The only drawbacks is that since it has been out for a shorter period of time, there may be bugs etc. but I don't think it will be that much of a problem.


I would like to have a few other opinions on the subject; go with the most stable? Take the stable new release? Or, go with the newest possible and take the risk?


I do want to make sure my site stays accessible and smooth though, and of course need stability.


Thank you ahead of time for the advice.


Chris :lol:

I have just put my companies site live at http://www.ferno.com.au and it works well. I had no prior php experience (html only) and with the help of others from this forum (+ mainly Linda McGraths contributions) and my site host, Steve (snowman) at http://www.alpinehosting.net have had minimal heartaches! I can't speak highly enough of OScommerce or the people connected with it! I only have to work out a couple of minor details and I can relax and actually spend some time learning about what I've just created! :?

The latest version you can get your hands on! I've got the milestone but I only use it for providing quotes so the latest additions are not needed! I'll upgrade when any new features determine the need! :wink:
