How to Guide on Installing Fresh Store Builder on a Main Domain.
Step1. This guide is showing the CPanel Hosting platform but 99% of hosting providers offer the same features, the icons or names might be different. You will need to find the icon to connect to your root directory for your hosting account. Click on File Manager to access your directory.
Step 2. Make sure you are in the correct directory before uploading the fresh store builder script. You can see the “Green Arrow” showing we are in the “Public_html” directory. This is the root of your hosting account and the main domain set for that hosting account.
Step 3. Click Browse and find the Fresh Store Builder zip file to upload.
Step 4. If you don’t see the .zip file, click on the Reload or Refresh Icon.
Right click on the FSB_X.0.0.zip file and click on “Extract”. This will extract all of the FSB files into your root directory for the main domain.
Step 5. Make sure you are extracting the zip files/folders to the correct location.
Step 6. Now you are ready to install the script on your main domain. You just need to visit yourdomain.com/
Replace “yourdomain.com” with your website URL and follow the quick steps to finish the install.
Step 7 Installing the script will only take 2 steps. You need to open your browser and visit yourdomain.com (replace yourdomain.com with your website URL)
You just need to enter your new database information below. Where it says “localhost”, 99% of the times you will just leave that default text. Some hosting providers store your database on a different server. They will provide you with the Database server url that you will need to replace where it says “localhost”. First try “localhost” and if you are getting error messages and are 100% sure you entered the full Database name and the full database user with the correct password, then double check to make sure your database isn’t hosted on a different server URL.
The information you set below will be used to reset your stores control panel password. You will also set a username/password for your control panel admin section.
Once you have installed the script it will redirect you to the login page. It will normally be yourdomain.com/freshadmin
If you installed the script in a sub-folder, then it would be yourdomain.com/foldername/freshadmin
If you installed the script on a sub-domain, then it would be foldername.yourdomain.com/freshadmin
Once you have logged into your freshadmin control panel, click on Get Started and then Store Health. That is where you will be able to setup your Amazon API keys, tracking id and also make your store live when you are ready to go.
