When I was looking to change a Joomla-based ecommerce site over to OpenCart, I found a world of support and answers from the OpenCart community but what I really needed was some step-by-step instructions to take me through the basic setup and configuration of my site.
I found bits and pieces here, and answers to my questions there, but I couldn’t find a single resource to take me through the process step by step. Realising that my installation would have been much easier if such a resource existed, I thought it might benefit other new OpenCart users if I recorded my experience of installing and configuring my OpenCart store.
I’ve produced a series of guides or tutorials based on my experiences that are designed to help a new OpenCart user to quickly setup up their ecommerce store.
If you find points that you feel could be better explained then please let me know by leaving a comment on the particular tutorial. I’ll then edit it accordingly to improve the overall site for the next user.
Thanks and good luck.
