OpenCart requires certain technical requirements to be met for the store to operate properly. First, a web server must be created to make the OpenCart store publicly available on the web. Domain names and hosting services can easily be purchased for an affordable price.
When selecting a hosting service, you should check to see that these server requirements are provided and installed on their web servers:
- Web Server (preferably Apache)
- PHP (at least 5.2)
These extensions must be enabled for OpenCart to install properly on the web server.
