X-Cart Install

This is how to install X-Cart on your server.

Get the most recent demo of x-cart (unless you want to buy a real cart) at http://www.x-cart.com/download_shopping_cart.html.

Download the xcart-gold-demo-linux.zip. This assumes your webserver is running on a linux platform.

Make a directory that houses the X-Cart setup zip file. Upload that file to your server. To that directory.

make_a_dir_like_this

Go to the zip file and use the server command called extract. Extract it to the root because it has a recursed directory structure that will inflate all the files to a directory called “xcart” anyway.

Go to your cpanel or equivalent. Go to MySQL Databases:

3mysqldbs

Create a new database called “xc”. Your server will let you know the proper name of the db you have created in my case its “username_xc”.

Then you have to create a user for this DB. I name him “xcu”, I give him password and I create him.

Then you have to assign user to DB. Do that assign xcu, to username_xc db.

Now The Install Can Begin.

Go to your servername/xcart.

Click on Install.

Agree to the things.

Click next untill you get here:

4setup1

Make your screen look like the above. Note thate you should probably type your server login name_xcu in front of your user name (if you are doing this on your server).
