First of all How shall I transfer my domain name from Wordpress to iPage? Thanks in advance for any answer or 2. Another quick question... I am "shopping" around for a new Shopping Cart package to install on my VPS for client use. I visited the oscommerce Web iPage site and had a few questions. Is osCommerce truly free? What are the requirements/limits to be able to install and use the software (or where can I find this information)? Thanks you for your assistance..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could help you..

What are the requirements/limits to be able to install and use the software (or where can I find this information)?..

Comment #2

From the wiki documention....

"With no restrictions or special requirements, osCommerce can be installed on any PHP3 or PHP4 enabled web server, on any environment that PHP and MySQL supports, which includes Linux, Solaris, BSD, and Microsoft Windows environments.".

Http://wiki.oscommerce.com/docsInstall.

HTH.

Does it work in a VPS environment with multiple Domains? How does the cart keep one domain's storefront out of another domain's storefront?..

Comment #4

No problem, each iPage domain in your VPS (Virtual Private Server) can have it's own webcart and can be individually configured and supported by your client base. In this scenario there would be no sharing of files etc. Sessions would be stored in the mysql tables, and a shared SSL environment would work nicely..

There are contributions on this iPage site that provide for multiple stores within a single version of oscommerce. I'll leave this search for you to have fun with on the forum and in the Contribution section of osc..

Thx OceanRanch. My VPS allows multiple SSL's so can the Cart support them too? What about different merchant accounts for credit card checkout? I will also check out the forum for other successes...

I would really like to conclude my evaluation and selection of a Shopping Cart today. Is there anyone out there that would be willing to talk with me on the phone about setup & configuration? I am not looking to spend more than 15 minutes with you. I am a PHP coder and know MySQL very well, so I am not looking to have a technical discussion. My discussion would be cosmetic & functional around (1) what does osCommerce look like out-of-the-box to my technology illiterate customer. Can s/he begin setting up their store front straight away or do I need to get involved with Web page setups, etc. And (2) my more pressing question is can I use osCommerce on 1 server with multiple/independent domains that each have their own unique store front and product list without any risk that 1 store front gets into another store front's site? If you are willing to talk for a few mins.

I am just outside of Buffalo, NY (keep your jokes to yourself), and can call you anytime day/night. Thanks a million.

Most VPS servers do not allow you to install a separate certificate for each domain, I know you can install a single certificate on a single ip address, is that what you are meaning?.

As far as talking with someone about installation, everything you need to know, if you are a php and sql person, is in the documentation. they are laid out fairly well, so read through there, install the application, play, play some more then when ready, do a fresh install and go..

I would suggest doing a 'localhost' installation for development (makes it quicker) then upload to the server for final testing...

Comment #8

Actually, I can install multiple SSL Certs as I am alotted many IPs for my VPS but that wasn't really the question. The real question pertained to mutiple carts on the same box and keeping one cart out of another cart's "underwear" to coin an expression. But I got a positive answer to that question offline from Chris..

Now my next question is does anyone know of an osCommerce Admin Panel I can take a peek at so I can see what my customer would have to use to manage their cart. This is the last step in my evaluation. Thanks for keeping this thread going with me..

Comment #9

Sessions keep the carts apart from one another. for the admin panel, there are many different ones, from the basic osCommerce installed to highly modified versions. How well versed is the customer in doing things? I can send you to one of mine, but then again, things are different...

Comment #10

Thank you Mibble and others who contrinuted to this thread. Your comments plus the excellent assistnce from a "Chris", enabled me to conclude that osCommerce will definitely work for me...
