9) You are almost done.
The application is now installed in the client computer, but now you need to install the PHP script in the web server. Read the section titled Server-side installation in this page. (In previous versions the server-side script was optional, now is required).

Using the zip compressed package:

0) osCommerce working.
You must have osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 2 installed, configured and working.

1) Get the files.
Get the application from http://www.mariovaldez.net/software/oscpmwin/ (get the zip compressed package).
Zip package image... 180x138, 1 k

2) Unpack the files.
Open and extract the files from the zip package using a Zip decompressor to the desired directory. We recommend 7-ZIP (free, open-source), but you can use WinZip, WinRAR or any other ZIP software. Check that the directory structure is kept (there should be a directory named oscpmwin with several directories inside (locale, modules, reports, serverside).
Zip package image... 496x409, 32 k

3) Review the license.
One of the files you unpacked is named license.txt. Open it with a text editor (like Windows Notepad). Basically you are free to use, copy, distribute and modify the software. Please note that you should agree with this license before using the software.
Zip package image... 633x657, 28 k

4) Check the permissions.
If you are installing in Windows NT, 2000 or XP (and using a NTFS disk), check the permissions of the directory where you unpacked the files. All users who will use the application need writing permissions to that directory. (In Windows XP Home there is not a Security tab to set the permissions. Just check that the directory is no marked as Read-only).
Zip package image... 374x487, 23 k

5) You are almost done.
The application is now installed in the client computer, but now you need to install the PHP script in the web server. Read the section titled Server-side installation in this page. (In previous versions the server-side script was optional, now is required).

Server-side installation:

No matter if you installed the application using the executable installer or the compressed package, you still need to install a single server-side PHP script in your osCommerce store. (In previous versions the this script was optional, now is required).

0) Install OSCPMWin.
First install the OSCPMWin application.

1) Locate the serverside directory.
When you installed or unpacked the application, a directory named serverside was created. Inside that directory there is a PHP file named oscpm1_upload.php.

2) Upload the PHP script file.
Copy that script file to your web server, to the directory of your osCommerce store (usually in the catalog directory). If your server is remote you usually do this step using a FTP or SCP client. (We recommend Filezilla for FTP and WinSCP for SSH/SCP but you can use whatever program you already have).
Zip package image... 853x599, 56 k

3) Test the PHP script.
Direct your web browser to the URL of the oscpm1_upload.php script. The page should display a message like the following:
Zip package image... 694x827, 39 k

4) You are done.
Now start the OSCPMWin application and configure it. Visit the page Configuration options for a summary of the configuration options.
