I am so new to this and have looked till I can not see anylonger. But would someone please help me to get a shopping cart on my page. I have signed up for paypal so I did get that much done. Now how do I get the shopping cart installed? Isn't OS Commerce supplied with my hosting package?

Please rescue me LOL

I followed your instructions and went to fantistico and downloaded the osCommerse. Now I am even more confused. I have unzipped the files that downloaded but how do I get the shopping cart onto my page and working?

When downloaded it is all in bits and pieces, does that mean I have to put it all together? Now I am lost, and if that is the process I will need lots of help.

You do not need to install Oscommerce from scratch, it is already preloaded in fantastico.

I can not seem to find it. Am I think or what? When I go into cPanel and click on fantastico it take me to a page with a list to the right and then when I click on osCommerce it takes me to their page, where I downloaded the program I told you about. I do not see anything that automatically installes it onto my page. What am I doing wrong?

Bingo I found it. Now I will have a look around and see what I have to do. Thanks for the help and I am sure you will be hearing from me again. But I do have to say this is a great experience putting a web page together. I do have most of it published now so will be working on the shopping cart now. I think that is going to be the most challenging part so far.

Ok I have installed it and now can not find it. Where would it be? How do I get it onto my page?

Told you I was thick. LOL

I will now have to add insult to injury. I have changed computers and that has caused me a whole new set of problems.

1. My images and text has changed on the web page published. So I will have to fix that problem.

2. I had the usernames and passwords saved in my other computer so have forgotten them. How do I go about getting them replaced? I am unable to publish, get into my cpanel or anything else that takes a unsername and password. Need some serious help here.

Please open a support ticket.

I can not open a support ticket as it will not let me in without my cpanel password and my username and password. Since I have changed computers I have lost this information.

What do I need to do to get in.

I don't use OSCommerce, but did an install just to get an idea what you're dealing with. Have you found your admin area? If not, you can locate it by adding the word admin to the end of your store's url (www.yoursite.com/store/admin (http://www.yoursite.com/store/admin)). From there, you'll be able to access the tools area which will allow you to edit the files referenced on the first page you see when you visit. This can be tricky stuff, though, so make sure you take the time to visit these links:

VodaHost and Racefan:

Hello guys.... Glad to see your still looking out for us no brainer types....

Which comes to my question......

I have installed osCommerce onto the Martech-Inc.biz domain.... Nav link is not located on the page just yet...... but my question is inregards to the following page links....

When a client wishes to login on their own or create an account in the shopping cart area I get the following (2) pages.... Where do I go to turn on the page that will assist the customer in creating and account or have the final check out page ... appear?

The links below are to the respective pages......

My Account Page is here.......
https://martech-inc.biz/teddys/account.php

Check out / shipping is here........
https://martech-inc.biz/teddys/checkout_shipping.php

Do I need to create pages that should represent the above (2) pages or how do I make the pages accesible to the customer?

I additionally have created a page which will be published where each page will be linked to the shopping cart respectfully.

Apparel / Accessories when clicked from the page will open up onto the shopping cart page that has apparel / accessories.... as soon as I grab the actual page to add to the navigation link.......

Neither of those links worked, Robert, so it's difficult to provide any answers.

Ram,

How to edit the attributes in OSC is covered on the tutorials, maunual, and their forum. Im not running it currently, as I found better solutions for myself, Id like to hold your hand, I dont have time. I tell most the same in SOHO launch as well. READ READ READ! Thats how i learned to do it!

Racefan:

The following link is the one that I should have referenced.
http://martech-inc.biz/teddys/

At the top of the above link page you are given the option as stated below... Only when the links are clicked it opens a page that is not working.......

Then when one clicks on log yourself in ? Sends you to the following non working page. https://martech-inc.biz/teddys/login.php

Or would you prefer to create an account ? Sends you to this non working page.https://martech-inc.biz/teddys/create_account.php

I can not find where I should go to create the pages which will permit login or account creation........

I have looked in the http://martech-inc.biz/teddys/admin for the information but still unable to find where the page is that should be turned on or accessed from the login or create an account?

Thank you

Do you have the SSL installed? If you dont, thats why you are getting errors linking to secure pages.
