The Shopping Cart Script allows you to upload a text database file
to your server, then make it available as a shopping cart. You
can easily configure it to work with any payment system.
Report any bugs to jasonsilver@crookedbush.com.

Overview:
--------

How It Works:

Instead of saving shopping cart data on the users computer in the
form of a cookie, this script saves the data on your server, using
their IP address as a file name.

After items have been selected and the user pushes 'check out' they
are taken to your confirmation page, and you are sent an email. You
can configure the confirmation page to work with most payment systems
like Kagi, PayPal, etc.

_______________________________________
Installation Overview:
-----------------------

1. Setting some options at the beginning of the database.pl file
2. Setting some options at the beginning of the shopping_cart.pl file
2. Setting some options at the beginning of the number_in_cart.pl file
3. Using FTP to upload the files
4. Setting permissions on the files
6. Administrating the script

_______________________________________
Here's How!
-----------

1. Using a text editor like textpad, or notepad, open all the perl scripts

The first thing to do is to change the path to perl so that it's
configured for your server.
It's usually:
#!/usr/local/bin/perl
or
#!/usr/bin/perl

2. At the top of each script are a number of variables.
Make changes to these to suit your server.

3. Look at the "magazines.txt" file and modify it for your own products. This
is the "database" and contains the product, the prices, the descriptions, etc.
You may rename it to anything you wish. As much as possible, use the SAME
HEADINGS as this will make the script work better. If you change a heading,
then you should look through the script to see what effect it will have on the
HTML and make changes there too.

id|item|coverphoto|magazine|date|price|category|comment|amount|photo|active

The bare minimum you need to make the script work are id, item, price,
category, and amount. Cover photo is a description of the photo.

3. Use an FTP program like WS_FTP or CuteFTP (just some examples I'm aware of) and
upload the three files to your server's cgi-bin.

4. Set permissions (CHMOD) on the three .pl files so they are executable. (755).
The owner should be able read, write, and execute.
The group should be able to read, and execute.
Also, other should be able to read, and execute.

5. Create a directory on your server for shopping cart data, like "shoppingcart_data"
or whatever you've specified in the script. CHMOD this directory 777.
The owner should be able read, write, and execute.
The group should be able to read, write, and execute.
Also, other should be able to read, write, and execute.

6. Upload the database file (magazines.txt) to your data directory (shoppingcart_data)
and CHMOD this file to 777.
The owner should be able read, write, and execute.
The group should be able to read, write, and execute.
Also, other should be able to read, write, and execute.

7. Customise your header.txt file and footer.txt file and upload them to the
same directory as the script.

8. Customise the database_confirmation.htm file and upload it to the same direcotry
as the script.

9. Use the number_in_cart.pl to print messages on your pages that say
"There are 3 items in your cart." Use a server side include to get it to display.
Here's the format for a server side include:
<!--#exec cgi="/cgi-bin/number_in_cart.pl"-->

You might need to rename your pages which have this include as shtml instead of
html. Consult your server administrator for details.

10. The $show_add_button = 1 variable in the database script shows a button for adding
new records. You can set this to zero (0) to remove the button.


Again, please let me know if you have ANY problems because this
script is still in development. Please register to enable me to offer updates
and new features.

Yours,
Jason Silver
