How Do I Install OsCommerce?


You can choose to install osCommerce from inside the cPanel and it will install it with one click but we recommend that you do an install yourself so that you get the latest version of the software.

Note: Using older versions of software may contain security risks and bugs that have been fixed in more current versions.

Once having downloaded the archive from the downloads page, follow these steps to get the online shop running:

  1. Extract the files from within the package unzip
  2. This creates a directory called 'oscommerce-2.2ms2'.
  3. Enter this directory and copy the 'catalog' directory to the public_html path of your webserver using an FTP program.
  4. Using your favourite browser, go to the following address: http://[your site]/catalog/install and follow the instructions on the screen.
  5. View the file catalog/includes/configure.php and make necessary changes. Now you can use your browser to view the pages which should be located at 'http://localhost/catalog/' (substitute localhost for your domain name).
