CyberOffice eCommerce is a Web-based business solution platform built on top of Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). Thus it works only if your Web site is hosted under Windows NT/2k/2k3/XP and uses the IIS as the Web server. To run it on a desktop computer, you need to install Microsoft Personal Web Server (PWS), a cut-down version of the full IIS. Click here for how to install / enable PWS.
When you run the setup program, it automatically expands and puts the appropriate files on to the appropriate locations, including registration of DLLs and ODBCs. You might however still need to set the correct NT user permissions on certain files: For each NT/2k/2k3/XP computer, there is a special user account named IUSR_xxx (where "xxx" is the name of the computer). IUSR will need to have execute permission on CyberOffice DLLs (CyberShop.Dll, CyberClub.Dll, and CyberBuild.Dll). By default, they are either under c:\winnt\system32, c:\Windows\system32 or c:\inetpub\wwwroot\cgi-bin. You will also need to allow Write permission on the folder that contains the database(s). By default, it will be c:\inetpub\wwwroot\_private. Use Windows Explore to locate the files/folder and change the permission on the file properties.
If Norton Anti-virus is running on your desktop, you must disable the "Script Blocking" feature of the program.
The installation creates icons on the desktop that access the local Web server on your computer, e.g. http://localhost/shopping_cart. The icon will work once the Web server is properly configured.
Having tested the programs or developed the site on your desktop, you need to upload them to your live or production server. Shared ISP installation check list gives you detailed counts of the procedures.
Some hosting ISPs might prohibit custom DLL components on their servers. If that happens to you, contact us immediately to get a list of alternative ISPs who endorse our software.
Numerous other payment agents are supported, some of them are listed under Global/System Settings. Contact us for more information.
Consult the full Development Guide for further technical information on the program(s).
