CE3 Cart Installation
To install the cart:
Unzip the 'cart' directory from the downloaded zip, either within your pages setup, or at the top level of your site.
Add a directory cart_data at the same level as the cart directory. You should then have the following structure:
Grant write access to the cart_data
directory, by changing permissions to either 755 or 777, depending upon your host. For more information, see our guide Creating Writable Server-side Directories
. This step is not required on Bluehost
Visit the URL
of the cart, e.g. http://yoursite.com/cart/
. This should create the database and settings files and directories within cart_data, and report that the cart is empty. This indicates that your basic installation is complete.
Set the admin password to something strong in the file cart/config/config.php NOTE for editing config.php on Macs: TextEdit for Mac by default converts straight quotes to angled quotes, which breaks the Publisher. This can be solved by either using a different editor, or changing this behaviour in the TextEdit settings: 1) Click the TextEdit menu item, followed by Preferences, 2) Unselect the 'Smart Quotes' option towards the bottom of the window, 3) Restart TextEdit
Try browsing to http://yoursite.com/cart_data/cart.sq3
