Hi. I'm starting my own web-store, and i'm trying to use osCommerce, for this. I'm new in this, so first, I want to make just a test page, to see how it works. I'm trying to find a free web host, but most of them do not support MySQL and PHP. Does FriHost suport osCommerce? Will it work on this server?
Is there anything I need to know before I start?
there are oscommerce, zencart, and other shopping utilities for commerce control
I'd suggest you use a customised version of osCommerce, such as Zen Cart, CRELoaded or osCommerce LoadedAU. These versions are based on osCommerce, but have all of the most popular MODS ('modifications') built in.
P.S Why do you want to set up an online store on a free host? Wouldn't that be classified as taking advantage of a free service?
Does FH sell secure CERTs? If not FH is not the host for a serious store.. unless you want to look amateurish and use offsite credit processing
