On-line stor software?
Hi fellow DIYers;

since my last Unix Systems Administration Engineer's contract is over, I am back here, full-time.

To get some money on my projects and extra parts I have for sale, I want to create an on-line store.

What basic software would you recommend?

I have both Intel/Linux and Sun/Solaris environment.

It may be Perl or PHP - based.

Sorry to hear you are out of work at this time of the year. Hopefully, comes January, you will get a new contract. I am familiar with osCommerce. As the name suggests, it is open source and a fairly mature product. Check it out at osCommerce, Open Source Online Shop E-Commerce Solutions.

Thank you Grimberg for your fast response!

I've downloaded osCommerce Online Merchant v3.0 Alpha 5, going to try it now.

I would suggest just using PayPal if you have only a few items. Then you do not have to bother with making a store as Paypal does this for you, pretty much. I've used it for years and find that it is no barrier. Paypal also does my accounting for me. I just download text de-limited files and give them to my accountant.

Your whole site can be done in html with this approach.+

Thank you Doug!

I already installed CentOS 5.4 on Dell PowerEdge, and osCommerce on top of it. It is easy and looks great! Now I am going to configure it for my needs.
