I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..

Comment #1

Can I use this with any server? I use Omnis.com... hopefully it works.....

Comment #2

OsCommerce will run on any webserver so long as PHP and MySQL are installed..

Just be sure to download the Windows version for a Windows server or the Linux version for a Linux server...

Comment #3

I have made web sites before but I guess I don't know a lot because I am not quite sure what PHP and MySQL are and how I know if I have that. I can do basic coding and I don't use stupid iPage site template free web things but I guess I ahve a lot to learn! I hope I can figure this out, I need a good store for my art!..

Comment #4

PHP.

Is a scripting language and.

MySQL.

Is a database..

Contact your host's support department and they can let you know what type of server you have (windows or linux) and whether php and mysql are installed...

Unzip the downloaded file, upload it to your server's document root folder or a sub-folder, and run the installation program by requesting.
