NO MORE BABBLING, HANDS ON (PART 2)

Opencart has been installed on your Cloud Server as depicted in the following image, in the previous post (part 1).

(Now you just need to click “Continue”)

(You’ve already met most of its prerequisites in Part 1. Just click “Continue” and you’re done)

NOTE:

1) Having a red check mark in the “Status” column indicates that a missing package has been installed.

You need to go back to Part 1 and do it all over again

2) The following directory will hold all of the website’s data:

/var/www/html/opencart


(You can check directly on Cloud Server as shown above)

 

The next page will require you to fill in the database details. Enter the details you defined in the MySQL database and click ‘Continue’.

NOTE: At this step, we need to pay attention to the following: 

  • (1) + (2) + (3) + (4): The value to be filled in will be taken from Part 1

(If you don’t recall these information, please refer back to Part 1 to double-check.)

  • (5) + (6) + (7): This is the information you’ll need to access your Opencart’s management page (the GUI interface).
 
 
When you click “Continue” (8), you will be sent to the web page displayed below. This implies you’ve installed and configured Opencart on your website successfully.
