Post subject:  What to install on the server (UPDATED)...

When you install the OSCPMWin setup program (or unpack the zip file) you'll find some files in the "serverside" directory. Here is explained what to do with those files.

What is the oscpm1_upload.php file?
The OSCPMWin application doesn't handle directly the product images and it doesn't connect directly to the MySQL database server (previous versions connected directly, but newer don't). Deletions, uploads and other checkings are done by this PHP script, as well as all SQL queries to the database. You have to install it in the root directory of your osCommerce store (by default is the "catalog" directory).

The reason to have a server-side PHP script is to avoid the need of FTP access or MySQL connections. FTP and MySQL connections are more difficult to pass thru firewalls. Also, most hosting companies don't allow for direct MySQL connections. Those problems are solved by using this server-side script. And, if you download the SSL extra package, you can encrypt also this http connection.

What is the sleepshell_0.0.1.tar.gz file?
This file is not longer included with the OSCPMWin packages, but it was provided in previous version. The SleepShell code is the source code (in C language) of a small utility to be used with SSH-tunnel connections. It was optional and now is no longer used. If you have it, just ignore it.

If you have any question about the server side installation of these components, post it to the forums or send me an email.

Yes. We understand and know how.
BUT you have to list step by steps.

HTTP option:
username? Password?
This is ftp password? worng... What do you mean username of database?
If you have a domain, and your database name usually base on login: abcdefgh_osc123
How do you connect the database without enter the domain? if yes how?

WRONG also!!!!!!!!

We all run osc on the server which outside from our home!.
