How do I install Cre Loaded?
Cre Loaded installation takes you few steps to fulfill.
First of all, download the Cre Loaded files archive from the official Cre Loaded website (it goes for free).
Make sure that the desired Cre Loaded version is downloaded; you are then able to install it to the hosting account via File Manager tool or via FTP client.
Once you have uploaded the file, extract zip file with the help of File Manager tool under your control panel. You will see two file packages: Doc folder and Catalog zipped package. Unzip the archive getting the online shop Cre Loaded files.
Now set up a database and a user from the control panel and add the new user to the database.
Open your website in the browser, you will be directed to the installation part itself. Press Install New Store button. You are recommended to leave the settings unchanged. You will be able to add sample goods here later and set up the Configuration files of the script itself.
Install Cre Loaded with the untouched sample data which will give you an idea of how to add products. Click Continue.
Now you should check your server compatibility, although Cre Loaded will do it for you. And press Continue button. (Make sure that all the checks appeared in green saying that installation steps were done correctly.)
Enter the host machine, database user and password for your website at the appeared dialogue window and press Continue. (Enter 'localhost' for your database server, username, password and database name should be the same as you have created previously.)
A confirmation screen will say that the Database importing has been done successfully. Press Continue then.
Now Cre Loaded will automatically detect your system paths, click Continue.
Check if all the database settings are correct and click Continue.
Enter your personal details, i.e. your name and email address in the next window and click Continue button.
