XAO::Commerce - eCommerce Suite
See sample site templates, images and usage examples.
XAO::Commerce is a part of XAO open source web services suite. It allows to build eCommerce sites using XAO::Web (see XAO::Web for details).
XAO::Commerce consists of a number of templates and the following objects:
The easiest way to install XAO Commerce is to use CPAN. Usually you would need to something like this:
sudo perl -MCPAN -e'install XAO::DO::Commerce'
If you downloaded archive and want to install it manually then usual four commands will do:
perl Makefile.PL make make test sudo make install
Once installed the XAO Commerce is ready to be used and its templates are located in the XAO installation path (usually /usr/local/xao/projects) under templates/.
Here are the steps you need to follow to get a simple working sample eCommerce site that uses XAO Commerce:
The distribution comes with a sample site in the directory sample/. This directory contains a set of templates, configurations, objects and tools for putting together a functioning sample eCommerce website. To set up this sample website:
Install the required packages, XAO::FS, XAO::Web and XAO::Catalog, along with their requirements.
% mysqladmin create commerce
% xao-fs --dsn=OS:MySQL_DBI:commerce init
cd /usr/local/xao/projects/commerce perl ./configure.pl
Enter OS:MySQL_DBI:commerce as the database DSN and username/password of a user that has full access to that database.
./bin/add-admin LOGNAME PASSWORD EMAIL REAL_NAME

NOTE: see README in `sample' for details.

Here you replace SOME_HOST_NAME with a something that you have in your DNS or at least in /etc/hosts file and SITENAME with the name you give your site. It is assumed in this example that the xao installation path used is /usr/local/xao/ -- you need to change it if you used a different path.
