osCommerce Library (Website)

This repository contains the development of the new osCommerce Documentation website powered by the osCommerce Online Merchant v3.0 framework.

Our website is not a general purpose solution for users to use as their website - it is custom and tailored to run the main osCommerce website. The frontend design is licensed and some graphics will not be available on Github. No installation routine is present however setup instructions are available for those interested in helping out.

The actual documentation content is Copyright (c) osCommerce. All rights reserved. The content may be reproduced for personal use only. Documentation authors grant osCommerce the ability to use the documentation as described in:



Follow the instructions at and install haraldpdl/oscommerce_website first.


Copy this repository:

git clone https://github.com/haraldpdl/website_library.git

The following directory structure is now in place:

  • oscommerce - osCommerce Online Merchant v3.0
  • oscommerce_website - osCommerce Website
  • website_library - osCommerce Library Website

Symlink the following directories from "website_library" to "oscommerce":

cd oscommerce/osCommerce/OM/Custom/Site
ln -s ../../../../../website_library/osCommerce/OM/Custom/Site/Library Library
cd ../../../../public
ln -s ../../../website_library/public/external/prettify external/prettify
ln -s ../../../website_library/public/sites/Library sites/Library

A configuration block is also required in osCommerce/OM/Config/settings.ini, which can be copied from an existing block:

enable_ssl = "false"
http_server = "http://your-server"
https_server = "http://your-server"
http_cookie_domain = ""
https_cookie_domain = ""
http_cookie_path = "/oscommerce/"
https_cookie_path = "/oscommerce/"
dir_ws_http_server = "/oscommerce/"
dir_ws_https_server = "/oscommerce/"

The website can then be accessed with the following URL:



Please review the following forum topic for discussions on the documentation website.


Discussions for our new website platform are held in:



Although the source code to new osCommerce website is available, it will obviously not be packaged together with osCommerce Online Merchant v3.0.

Making the source code available serves to showcase the capabilities of the framework, to migrate the Add-Ons and Live Shops sites to the new platform, to create new Documentation and Translations Sites, and to kickstart the initiative of a general purpose CMS Site that can be packaged with osCommerce Online Merchant v3.0.
