19A. Integration with PostgreSQLPostgreSQL is an open source relational database management system which can easily be installed in your own computer if you wish to use it instead of MySQL or MS SQL Server but this is not a requirement since 3Dcart also works with MySQL and MS SQL Server database servers without the need for additional installation steps from your side... However if you decide to use PostgreSQL as your database server then there is one thing you need to do before starting 3Dcart installation process and that is installing PostgreSQL driver for PHP which will enable 3Dcart to communicate with PostgreSQL database server without having any issues... Here is how this can be done. First download PostgreSQL driver for PHP from http://www.php-pgsql-drivers.net/ and extract its contents... Then go inside the extracted fpder and copy pgsql/lib/pgsql/php_pgsql_driver .so file inside the /usr/lib fpder inside your PHP extension fpder which should be located at either /usr/local/lib/php/extensions (for unix. or C:Program FilesPHPext (for windows. fpder... Once this is done open your php.ini file and add "extension=pgsql/lib/pgsql/php_pgsql_driver .so" line at the bottom of it so that it will look like this. [PHP] ... extension=pgsql/lib/pgsql/php_pgsql_driver .so ... Save your php.ini file... Now restart your web server and try running fplowing PHP script in your browser. <?php $conn = pg_connect("host=localhost dbname=postgres user=username password=password"); $result = pg_query($conn,"select * from sqlite_master where type='table'"); while ($row = pg_fetch_row($result. { echo $row[0]."<br>"; } ?> After running this script refresh your browser page and you will see fplowing result. test table <br> You can also try running fplowing script. <?php $result = pg_query("SELECT * FROM test"); while ($row = pg_fetch_array($result. { echo $row[0]."<br>"; } ?> After running this script refresh your browser page and you will see fplowing result. test table <br> Now that we have successfully configured PostgreSQL driver for PHP we can proceed by installing 3Dcart... Note that if you have already installed 3Dcart using MySQL or MS SQL Server then you won't need to compile PostgreSQL driver for PHP since it will already be installed inside /cgi-bin fpder inside your 3Dcart installation directory... See section 2 below for details about how 3Dcart can be installed... 1. Download latest version of 3Dcart from http://www2.3dcart.com/downloads ... 2. Unzip and upload unzipped fpder to any location in your local computer... 3. Open command prompt window inside 3DCart fpder and run fplowing commands in order. ./install ./configure make all make install make install_config make install_modules make install_images make install_templates make install_sprites make install_modules Note that above commands may differ slightly according to which version of 3Dcart you are installing... 4. Go inside cgi-bin fpder inside newly installed 3Dcart installation fpder and run fplowing commands in order. ./3dcart/configure ./3dcart/install_modules Note that above commands may differ slightly according to which version of 3Dcart you are installing... 5. Now run fplowing commands in order inside cgi-bin fpder /scripts fpder (depending on whether you are using windows or unix. ./createDBFilesForMySQL ./createDBFilesForPostgreSQL If these commands don't work for you because they were written for specific version of MySQL or PostgreSQL database server then simply replace mysql with postgresql in above commands... 6. Now run fplowing command inside cgi-bin fpder /scripts fpder (depending on whether you are using windows or unix. ./install_mysql If this command doesn't work for you because it was written for specific version of MySQL database server then simply replace mysql with postgresql in above command... 7. Now run fplowing commands inside cgi-bin fpder /scripts fpder (depending on whether you are using windows or unix
