Can I install a PHP shopping cart?





apple
I have been trying to find a free shopping cart for my website and I think I found one, a php cart.

I'd like to know if I can install the cart on the server itself?

I do hope I am asking the correct questions.

I am asked for the ftp info which I have and the files can be installed, but when I am about to complete it...

I am asked for the url of the installation file on the server.

This is where I am confused.

Can someone tell me if using this software is permitted and maybe tell me what I am missing?

Thanks for reading this.

You are allowed to host shopping carts that are free..
If the shopping cart is at yoursite.frih.net/cart then the installation file may be somewhere like yoursite.frih.net/cart/install.php etc

sure you can install a free cart system... but you should not sell things such as alcohol, weapons, illegal things and porn

Hi again,

when I click submit order, I get this message

Just a quick note - DON'T accept credit cards in your shop, as FriHost does not offer encryption to protect the highly sensitive date. If you can, get your customers to pay using PayPal instead Smile

So I think I'm safe.

I need some help with this please.

I have used the NOP cart..which is a free shopping cart.

It works with a .pl file which I have to place in the cgi bin together with a CSV file.

When I go thru the process of the cart system I get to the final stage and when I hit submit order I get the following message, which I have quoted below.

Can someone please advise me as what I should and should not do?

I'm not sure about the cart you've installed but it might be worth taking a look at ZenCart.

It's another free PHP one. I use it for my site. It's very flexible and has a shedload of support from a very active user/developer community.

In addition it integrates with PayPal (using their secure http) so you can take credit/debit card payments without risk - and without needing an agreement with a payment processor.

If you want to take a closer look here's their web site: http://www.zen-cart.com/ and here's the forum: http://www.zen-cart.com/forum/

GSIS....thanks, for the suggestion...I'll check it out now Smile
