First question I got is Which is better for a personal website iPage or startlogic? Looking forward for any comment. My other question... Hi osCommerce pips! wiredbox here...just landed..

I'm a multimedia designer, i'm about to venture to database thing, which I don't have any idea, only because my friend wants to start a medium scale on-line store..

Though confusing as hell to me, I feel that I might learn something new here..

So, anybody can extend a hand...a coding hand...

Good question... I dunno what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..

I started with osCommerce, but quickly realised that building/rebuilding/redesigning an osCommerce iPage site online is a time consuming thing. Far better to install a server on your own computer, install osCommerce to that, make your changes (much quicker) and then upload when ready to go. You'll need the following:-.

1. PHP installed on your computer..

2. PHPMyAdmin installed..

3. MySQL installed.

4. A web server installed. My recommendation, especially as you're new to this is not to install Apache but to install Xitami, by imatix.com, (works the same but is a much smaller download and easier to install)..

You then download and unzip oscommerce to c:\xitami\htdocs\yourfolderhere, and access it via.

Http://localhost/yourfoldername.

Have fun. I did. Vger..
