Zen Cart or do it myself

Recommended Posts

Dear gurus,

 

I am an intermediate php developer. I am creating a web store. In general, I would like to know your thoughts on using the $_SESSION array for keeping track of items for a shopping cart. Would you advise using hidden html fields that will remember what they put in the cart, or do you think a cookie or better session cookie to keep track?

 

Also, I was starting to install Zen Cart, where do you put the CURL files, in the root of local host, or in the root of the application, let's say, localhost/ or localhost/webstore?

Thank you for your thoughts from experience.

KP

Hi

My advice is to use sessions. They are much secure than cookies and easier to use.

 

As for the zen cart I am not sure as I never used it for anything other than quick testing.

I agree with this suggestion, I always use session, they are more secure and easy to use.
