The e-commerce.

Ultra newbie


Recommended Posts

I am brand new to OSCommerce. The program is available on my server via Fantastico. That is all I know about the program. Could you please point me to documentation for a beginner? I don't need installation information, just operational info. That is, after I tell my server to install OSCommerce, what's next? I do not have root access to the server, which is controlled by my ISP.


Is http://wiki.oscommerce.com up? I got a server timeout error.

I just looked through the admin and worked it out from there. www.yourdomain.com/catalog/admin


start with configuration and look at all the values and what you need to change ie your store, your email address etc


If you click on catalog, you will find where to add your products


It was trial and error on my part but i got used to it


You will see the sample data and how that is set up, if you leave it there for now to help you put you categories and products in and delet the sample data later.


Hope this helps

The servers have been a bit slow lately - Although I doubt you'll find the Wiki documentation too helpful, as it's more for end users rather than the person implementing the store.


Best thing to do is install a template system if you're new (from the contributions section) - I found the BTS (basic template system) very useful, and you get some pointers on how to easily customise your shop.


Other than that it's really a case of looking through this board, or searching the net for tutorials, good luck!
