Leonard,

If your linux distro supports PHP, then you should have no problem
running any PHP based application, not just a shopping cart
application. AFAIK, PHP can be compiled from source, or is available is
some pre-packaged form, for most Llnux distros.

I read on this list that www.oscommerce.com has an excellent shopping
cart application. Visit them, see what requirements they mention (web
server, php version, database, etc) to install and use the app.

As long you can install PHP on your linux box (and the other
requirements as demanded by the web app) you should be okay.

If this was not what you intended to ask, please let us know.

Thanks,

PS: Of course, Google is your friend and look for keywords such as "PHP
Shopping Cart".

Does oscommerce run on Windows? Not that I'll run my production box on
Windows, but I need it for development. Thanks

It should....they have a windows package on their download site.

Quote from their opening page:
"osCommerce combines open source solutions to provide a free and open
e-commerce platform, which includes the powerful PHP web scripting
language, the stable Apache web server, and the fast MySQL database
server.

With no restrictions or special requirements, osCommerce is able to run
on any PHP enabled web server, on any environment that PHP and MySQL
supports, which includes Linux, Solaris, BSD, Mac OS X, and Microsoft
Windows environments."
