Software requirements: PHP 5.0 or later version.

A new installation of ApPHP Shopping Cart is a very straight forward process:

Step 1. Uncompressing downloaded file.
-------------------------------------
   Uncompress the ApPHP Shopping Cart version 2.x.x script archive. The archive will create
   a directory called "php_shopping_cart_2xx"


Step 2. Uploading files.
-------------------------------------
   Upload content of this folder (all files and directories it includes) to your 
   document root (public_html, www, httpdocs etc.) or your shopping cart directory using FTP.
   Pay attention to DON'T use the capital letters in the name of the folder (for Linux users).

   public_html/
   or
   public_html/{shopping-cart directory}/
   
   Rename default.htaccess into .htaccess if you need to add PHP5 handler.


Step 3. Creating database.
-------------------------------------
   Using your hosting Control Panel, phpMyAdmin or another tool, create your database
   and user, and assign that user to the database. Write down the name of the
   database, username, and password for the site installation procedure.


Step 4. Running install.php file.
-------------------------------------
   Now you can run install.php file. To do this, open a browser and type in Address Bar

   http://{www.mydomain.com}/install.php
   or
   http://{www.mydomain.com}/{shopping-cart directory}/install.php

   Follow instructions on the screen. You will be asked to enter: database host,
   database name, username and password. Also you need to enter admin username and
   admin password, that will be used to get access to administration area of the
   site.


Step 5. Setting up access permissions.
-------------------------------------
   Check access permissions to images/uploads/. You need to have 755 permissions 
   to this folder.


Step 6. Deleting install.php file.
-------------------------------------
   After successful installation you will get an appropriate message and warning to
   remove install.php file. For security reasons, please delete install file
   immediately.


Congratulations, you now have ApPHP Shopping Cart v.2.x.x. Installed!
