The e-commerce.

Few General Questions regarding install


Recommended Posts

Greetz to all.


begin story ~ I am here because I have a website, and I am using the cart osCommerce 2.2-MS2. Some of the details are as follows.

HTTP Server: Apache/2.0.40 (Red Hat Linux)

Server OS: Linux 2.4.20-20.9

PHP Version: 4.2.2 (Zend: 1.2.0)

Database: MySQL 3.23.58

I am fairly new to *nix in general. Sorry folks grew up on dos and windows. I do however understand networking and alot of the ins and outs of web serving/hosting. I know html, java, and some basic programming languages.



One of my questions has been answered here


I did read the whole faq above.


There are a few things I did not find however.

So here are my questions, listed in no particular order since they will have to be congiured prior to opening the store for all.


1:\>On the open page by default there is a box named "manufacturers"

Can I remove this completly? If so how?

2:\>Same as above except it is labeled "reviews"

3:\>See above, except the Language box?

4:\>What is the best way to deal with the error message " Warning: Installation directory exists at: /var/www/dopey/shop/catalog/install. Please remove this directory for security reasons" Can I simply rename the dir?

5:\>What is the best method to secure the admin dir. Using .htaccess perhaps?


Thank you all in advance. Your help is greatly appreciated.
