Project Description


A web-hosting company needs a Creatable-Shopping-Cart so their clients can easily have a shopping cart to sell their products online.


1) The Master Admin GUI must have an online Control Panel to:

a) create new shopping cart accounts whenever a client comes to them and orders a shopping cart

b) Will it be as simple as keying in the domain name of the client or path for the shopping cart, admin username + password + email, so that the client's shopping cart can be installed/generated instantly into the server?

Will you need that domain's FTP account username and password? What about MySQL database name and passwords?

c) OR will you develop system to modify existing "template" scripts? This will then be downloaded to Master Admin's PC and then master admin uploads this new set of "shopping cart scripts" into the new clients FTP account? what about MySQL, will Master-Admin need to use PHP-Myadmin?

d) Will there be any "chmod 0777" to set permissions? Please state clearly in your PM as security is high priority in this project

e) view/edit/delete the list of shopping cart accounts created by the control panel.
