The trial distribution files includes the NetStores Ordering System, NetStores Quoting System, and NetStores Instant Credit modules. Contact NetStores if you need the NetStores EDI Link module or the NetStores Secure Server module.
The trial distribution is not disabled software. You only need to pay for NetStores if you use it to process transactions. See the License Agreement for details.
Once you've downloaded the trial offer files, use the steps that follow to install the software:
rootuser (or the user account that runs the server).
You do not need
root permission to install the
distribution files. However, being the
simplifies the installation. To install the software as a user
root, you must have read and write
permission to the server's root directory and the
dwos-bin subdirectories, which
the installation will create.
If your user account is unable to write to the server's root
directory, you should have the
root user grant you
write permission to the "dwos" and "dwos-bin" subdirectories with
these commands (where server_root is the path to the
server's root directory):
cd server_root mkdir dwos dwos-bin chown nobody dwos*
/usr/local/etc/httpddirectory. It's the directory that contains the
cgi-bindirectory and the
htdocsdirectory.) Use a command similar to this:
eval_????.tar.Zis an example. Your filename will contain your Trial ID number.)
mv eval_????.tar.Z dwos_tar.Z
cat dwos_tar.Z | uncompress | tar xvf -
dwos" and "
should be created (if they did not already exist) and populated
with a number of files and subdirectories.
Answer the prompts and choose to run the setup routines when you are ready.
chown -R nobody dwos* chgrp -R nobody dwos*
dwos-bindirectory a ScriptAlias (like cgi-bin) by modifying your configuration file(s). This allows the server to run the programs in the
dwos-bindirectory as CGI programs.
DWOS_BIN=/usr/local/etc/httpd/dwos-bin MYDOCROOT=/usr/local/etc/httpd/docs export DWOS_BIN MYDOCROOT
http://your.domain.name/dwos-bin/dsply-env You should see a list of all the environment variables your server makes available to CGI programs. If you see a message that says you need to set MYDOCROOT, DWOS_BIN, or a Script Alias for dwos-bin, your settings did not work.
