The e-commerce.

Newbie needs basic pointer...


Recommended Posts

osCommerce is the shopping cart of choice for my host (Globat.com) who have installed it for me. Sadly that was kinda it and I'm left trying to figure out what to do next...


It seems like they have installed the store in my general httpdocs folder and also again in my httpsdocs folder (SSL) Do I need to amend files in both folders? i.e.) uploading images, do I need to upload them to both folders? seems long winded to me but maybe someone can enlighten me :D


many thanks in advance

Sorry to be a pain, can someone tell me where to find where the settings are for configuring email? I send email out but nothing is received so I wonder if my ISP has actually configured it properly.


TIA :)

Installation in both folders is fine. This is useful if you have SSL certificates. When you use the secure mode the images and files

are taken from /httpdocs . I do not believe there is extra configuration

required beyond those in Admin | My Store . You can look at the

email function and compare it with sendmail in phpinfo()

  define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.royalscottishcorporation.org.uk'); // ****** eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

  define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.royalscottishcorporation.org.uk'); // ****** eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

  define('ENABLE_SSL', true); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?

  define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/store/'); // ****** absolute path required

  define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/');

  define('DIR_WS_ICONS', DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'icons/');



This is what i have in the configure.php in my https folder. What do I have to put in to tell it to look in the http folder for images?


Thanks :)
