That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..
Thanks for your answer. The zipped file contains a folder called "includes" in there are the php files..
Do you suggest I FTP the includes folder into my includes folder at the web iPage site file manager??..
Well, I would suggest that yownload and install filezilla for your ftp needs..
Ftp the contents of the contribution includes directory into your includes directory...
Yes, so just the contents, not the whole folder, that's what I meant, will do that now, thanks..
(I use Ipswitch FTP Client at the moment.)..
Anything except the osc file manager and internet explorer...
Sorry, one more question..
Inside the includes folder are 2 folders again.
1) languages (with 3 lang.folders inside) and.
2) modules ( with folders inside..
Can I just FTP this all "wrapped up" in these folders..
'cause then subfolders will surely appear, is this not a problem ?
That is the normal structure, just ftp as discussed. It will not cause a problem...
I uploaded the files....nothing has changed in the shipping module in admin ??? I must have done something wrong ??.
(and I am also in the wrong Forum dept. I saw there is a seperate one for contributions...)..
If you don't know how to do these things, it is better that you either;.
Install a new oscommerce shop and use it as a testing playground.
Pay someone to do contribution installs for you.
It is very easy to destroy a site, too easy in fact - so if you have a playground where you can make test changes without fear of breaking anything that is a good way forward. You can even make a copy of your iPage site and run it on your home computer. Once happy with any changes you made, upload the changed files to your live website...
Thanks for the comments ??.
I do have a copy and a back up, so I won't destroy the site..
And I am trying out before actual posting, but I like to learn how to do things myself, that's why I look for tips here..
So far with a little bit of help I have managed a lot and learned heaps..
So I will keep trying..
