Pinksquid Posted November 22, 2009 Share Posted November 22, 2009 Hi There I have just realised that there are 2 forums, so please forgive me for posting in both because I am very confused Hope I am in the correct place and haven't repeated a question (within this forum) but I am hoping someone can advise please as this is all 'gobbledegook' to me! Today I have installed and published the Cubecart files. I followed all the instructions, but I don't know if I read them wrong as far as what directory to install into was concerned, but my first attempt caused a problem. I created a new folder (shop/store) in my hosts equivalent of the public_html folder and published all the files to that shop/store sub folder? All seemed ok, and I had no problem logging into the admin and looking around etc. However, if I typed the store url into the browser I just got the plesk control panel page. My host says I should just have published the files straight into the public folder (or equivalent of) without creating a store/shop directory. I deleted everything and reinstalled as they instructed and all seems ok. However, before purchasing my full license key and installing one of Estelles modules, I wonder if anyone can tell me if the directory the files are installed in makes any difference to the functionality or security of the cart - as I don't want to think 'yippee' I did it, only to find further down the line something is wrong. Does that make sense? 2) Whilst I am here, may I also ask if I should/can protect the admin login page at all? As I haven't now created a sub directory for the files, it wouldn't take a genius to find the admin.php page and try logging in to the admin area. Any advice on these two issues (plus the confusion over the forums) would be much appreciated please. Thanks very much in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
