Web Development

As I start testing out OpenCart, I ran into one issue. When a customer puts in a request for a return, no email is sent to alert the store admin or any one. So I started looking around for solutions and ran into couple of suggestions on OpenCart forum. Below are my variations which I am contributing to OpenCart community for free as this is not my original work.

Objective: Email alert sent on request for return

Step 1: Look for file


I have started playing with various open source e-commerce shopping cart systems available out there. I thought it would be good to document my experience as I go along. After Googling around, I ran into a page at Wikipedia which lists quite a few of them (both open source and paid). I will start working with some popular free ones in random order and compare them. It seems like osCommerce is used by a fairly large group. So I will get started with that and see how it goes.

One of my hobbies is to develop websites and I have ended up developing quite a few of them. Time has come when it is necessary to regularly back up the websites lest I run into issues should something goes wrong with the web host. Cron jobs help back up websites (including databases) fairly easily. But I ran into AJAX error issue when I went to set up cron through cPanel.

When someone wants to run Drupal from a "subfolder" instead of the root (public_html), it's easy to set it up using cPanel for "Add-on" domains. But people face issues running the primary domain from a subfolder. First issue is how to set it up so that the site is pointed at the correct subfolder. Second issue it how to make sure that the "clean URL" functions normally.
