How do I install and configure my shopping cart application?
Every client of TMDHosting has Softaculous aouto-installer tool configured within the hosting account. Softaculous is an automatic installer tool that you can find in your cPanel. It has over 30 e-commerce scripts to choose from for your website. These scripts cover most of the uses a customer could ever have. You can find in the catalog a wide variety of categories where you can look for the most suitable shopping cart application to power your website in the E-Commerce category.
After you pick the application that suits your needs, you can go to the installation tab and enter the requested information needed by the tool to adjust properly your new script.
The most important fields that you need to look at are:
• In Directory – here you have to enter the desired subfolder where you want your script to be installed into. If you want the script to be accessible directly via the domain name, you must clear this field and leave it empty!
• Choose Domain – here you can chose under which one of your domains you want the script to be installed
• Choose Protocol – from the drop-down menu you have to select if you will be using https protocol to load the application’s page
• Do not forget to replace the Admin Username, Password and Email with an appropriate ones
After you enter all adjustments for the installation, just click on the Install button on the bottom of the page and the automatic installation process will start. Allow some time for the process to complete and in the end Softaculous will give you the links to access your administrative area of the freshly installed application.
