I am attempting to set up my first shopping cart system for my first web site using 1shoppingcart.com. Unfortunately, I just found out my web hosting company does not support asp. However, they do support php. Is this a normal occurence of web hosting companies?
1shoppingcart.com gives the following asp script with the following directions so that their url does not show up in my customers browser, but my url will. I was told by my web hosting company that the same results can be obtained with php. So basically I just need a php script that will accomplish the same result as this asp script. I'm not a programmer, so please keep your explanations on how I use your script simple.
(Is 1shoppingcart.com a reputable company and/or do you have any other suggestions for a shopping cart system?)
The following is the 1shoppingcart.com asp script:
'// Command Script generated and powered by
'// 1ShoppingCart.com(c) 2003
if request("productid")<>"" then
if cmd="checkout" then
elseif cmd<>"" then
select case cmd
case "update" 'change
case else 'home
if request("af")<>"" then 'aftrack
elseif request("ad")<>"" then 'adtrack
elseif request("email1")<>"" then 'contact
if request.querystring<>"" then dest=dest & "&" & request.querystring
if request.form<>"" then dest=dest & "&" & request.form
Directions of 1shoppingcart.com for the use of their script above:
With 1ShoppingCart.com and our simple Command Script, your links, ads, and affiliate traffic will all be pointed to your domain, rather than to http://www.1shoppingcart.com
. Just follow the easy instructions in this setup wizard!
If you would prefer not to use the Command Script, just click the Skip button at bottom to start creating shopping cart products immediately.
First, choose a script platform, then copy-paste all of the code from the text box into a simple text editor (Notepad or Textpad, etc).
Next, save the code as cmd.asp (ASP) to your local hard drive.
After you have saved the file, upload it to your website. ASP users, just save the file to any folder on your site - we recommend you put it in the root ("home") folder.
Now, enter the URL for your Command Script file here.
Press Save and Continue
I sincerely appreciate your help.
