Some Help With Setting Up Multi Vendor Cs-Cart


I have a friend who wants to set up an online store using the CS-Cart Multi-Vendor software.

I have been involved in an IT course the last 18 months so my knowledge on these topics is okay but in no means great.

I have read through the installation process and it all looks very straight forward and I have just a few questions that I am hoping to get answered here.

  • First of all I am thinking of just running the server on a personal computer running on Windows as I am unfamiliar with OS like Linux, should I take the time to get to know Red-Hat Linux or will a Windows Server OS suffice?

  • I have had no prior experience with Structured Query Language, how important is this to the installation and maintenance of the software? The installation guide does not say a whole lot about SQL but does mention some jargon I don't fully understand.

  • Lastly, what other things must I be able to do to set up and maintain this software? Any personal experiences, resources, or tips you got for me?

Thanks for any responses, also which other subreddits could help me out with CS-Cart?

Good Morning!

I've used both a local server and then hosting and hosting is by far superior. I run into a bunch of notification mail problems using on a local server. To be honest, the costs of hosting are so small now that it's definitely worth the expenditure.

I wouldn't say that you need any experience with SQL in order to install. There are easy step by step guides to installing on a server that can be followed easily.

In terms of operating the software itself, one of the key benefits is that you don't need coding experience in order to get it operational. A lot of it is great out of the box. If you want a deep level of customization then perhaps contacting a developer is necessary, but this won't be the case for a lot of things that you can do.,mode.%20%20...%20Enter%20your%20license...%20More%20
