Hi,

Being a complete novice ( 5 days) i have made some progress as you can see with my site but need some info to how to install a cart and how to use the database needed, i have downloaded osCommerce (although i'm not bothered which product to use as i don't know which is the best/easiest/user friendl) and have the files on my file manager but don't know what to do next. Is this something that with my knowledge will be able to do?

sorry to be a pain

cheers deano

after installing os commerce my home page ".index.html" won't load
after looking in cpanel my home page has a load of numbers after it i.e.
".index.html.111928****" (didn't know if these numbers are sensitive so left some blank)

is this normal or the cause of it?
