Re: Adding a forum

it would be “forums.mystore.com” Use this. So commercial support would not be any use to me If you used cPanel I would explain how to do it in detail here, but as you use some free system, you'll need to either figure out how to do it yourself by searching Google, move to better hosting, or pay som...

Re: Adding a forum

Alright, so I decided to purchase a hosting plan with greengeeks. I managed to move some money around and their most basic plan is not only highly affordable but extremely flexible as far as bandwidth and diskspace is concerned. I will also have access to a cPanel. So I’ll be doing it like that onc...

Re: Adding a forum

Re: Adding a forum

Not sure how your server is set-up, do you have cpanel access? Are you allowed to create subdomains ? I would say that is the easiest and best way to keep the forum separate from your opencart store. So, you would end up with two separate root folders: your main opencart folder and your forum's fol...

Re: Install.txt

By default should work like is. In my practice, I have never had to change this permissions. Fair enough, it just was not exactly clear if it was referring to if required when using a linux or windows server, or a host server, or both. I guess just in case for whatever reason my host's server requi...

Re: Adding a forum

Example of WHAT? Just create it and upload, that's it. You're overcomplicating the very simple task. An example of where I am supposed to upload the subfolder to. Obviously it can't go into the opencart files, and i am sure two forms of software can't exist on the same root folder. Again, i have no...

Re: Adding a forum

Personally - I would keep your forum in a sub-domain far far away from your Ecommerce store. Trying to incorporate a shared forum login system with your Ecommerce store, that's horrible idea from a security standpoint IMO. Maybe something like an OAUTH setup would work, but shared credentials is a ...
