We recommend installing osCommerce automatically from our control panel. Follow the guide here.
This guide shows how to proceed to install osCommerce manually on our web hosting account.
When you ordered you received an email with information about the web hosting account you created with us. In the window below we have submitted relevant information for the web hosting account we are using in this case, as well as other relevant information:
Step 1 - Download osCommerce:
Go to osCommerce's website at https://www.oscommerce.com and download the latest version.
Step 2 - Unpack the archive:
The file you downloaded is an archive containing all of osCommerce. Unpack this locally on the computer you are using.
Step 3 - Upload osComerce on your web hosting account:
osCommerce can be uploaded in several ways. This guide details the simplest way - via FTP. If you are unsure about how to set up an FTP client, you should click on our guide for this in the guide section on our website.
In our example we will install osCommerce on the address http://dittdomene.net/oscommerce. Files that are put in the folder public_html/oscommerce will be accessible on the address http://dittdomene.net/oscommerc. If you cannot find the folder public_html you have most likely specified in your FTP client that it should start in that folder.
Upload the contents from the folder "/catalog" which is located on your local computer (from the folder you unpacked in) to the web hosting account. Be aware that this might take some time, since there are many files to upload.
Step 4 - Create database:
To use osCommerce you must have a database. Follow the guide Create MySQL database in cPanel to create a database with associated database user. During the creation we specify "osCommerce" as database name and "osCbruk" as database user in this guide. It gives database name and database username as shown at the top of this guide (all database names and database usernames will have the web hosting account's username as prefix).
Step 5 - Browser installation:
Go to the address http://dittdomene.net/oscommerce/ in your browser. You will automatically receive the installation guide for osCommerce.
Connect via FTP and delete the folder "/install".
We have now been through how to install osCommerce on your web hosting account.
