Welcome to SurfShop. Our goal is to provide a web store program that can be used ON ANY UNIX-BASED SHARED HOSTING ENVIRONMENT and is COMPLETELY PORTABLE so if you change ISPs, you can take your store with you. We hope you find this script to be the most versatile web store system available today.
IF YOU ARE NEW TO CGI OR HAVE NEVER INSTALLED A CGI ON A WEBSITE:
Please read the section entitled Web Essentials and come back here when you are finished.
SurfShop can use MySQL, DBM or ASCII databases. This means that if you don't have Berkeley DB or NDBM on your server, it's okay. If you don't have access to a MySQL database, thats OK. If you only have two products and don't need a full-blown relational database, THAT'S OK! Click here to view the Minimum Requirements.
Once SurfShop is installed, you can do everything necessary to manage your web store using your web browser. You can change the way the site looks, update pricing, tax and shipping calculations, add products and images, and many other things.
