E-commerce

P: n/a
Does anyone know of a free or open-source e-commerce package written
in PHP that doesn't require register_globals? Everything I've
downloaded so far requires that, and I can't turn it on (security
issues).

I'm currently having to write one of these, if you could send me your
requirements, I will let you have the finished product!

Kind Regards,

Ok maybe I'm smoking something here, but I'm pretty sure the latest
incarnation of OSCommerce doesn't require register globals to be on
anymore.

In general, the usual, but if you want me to be a little specific,
here's a few requirements:

1. Multiple currencies
2. Categorising of products
3. Remote administration (by which I mean I don't have to modify
anything on the web server like the database)
4. Payment gateways (WorldPay, PayPal, NOCHEX, Escrow, E-gold, etc.,
etc.)
5. Accounting (purchase price, selling price, net and gross profit,
etc.) -- Not vital, but helpful.
6. Trolley (obviously)

Of course, these should be customisable, I mean in the first case, if
I setup British Pound and US Dollar only, I might need to add Canadian
Dollar, Euro, etc. in future.

I hope this helps. I have some more requirements, and can add these
later if needed.

http://www.x-cart.com/cart_system_requirements.html

Web server with support for PHP version 4.0.6 or better.

Your php.ini should match the following requirements:
a. track_vars is enabled.
b. magic_quotes_gpc is enabled.
c. safe_mode is disabled
Xcart is good commerce. :)

You mean 2.2 Milestone 2? That's the version I tested, and it
immediately said "register_globals is off, please turn it on in
php.ini" (which was fine on a local development machine, but not on a
live webserver).

I downloaded a copy of that and was floored by the fact that
once unzipped it contained OVER 1,000 FILES! Isn't that a wee
bit complex?

I'll take a look. If I'm going to pay $150, I'll need to check this
meets what I need.

Ian, are those requirements OK?

eep! Sorry, I heard that info through the grape vine. Since I don't
use the software myself, I just assumed that information to be
correct. I guess thats what I get for not checking my facts before I
post.
