How to Guide on Installing Fresh Store Builder on a ADDON DOMAIN.
Step 1. You will need to login to your hosting control panel and find the “Addon Domains” icon. Click the icon to setup the new domain for your FSB install.
Step 2. Anytime you are using ADDON DOMAINS, by default the directory name will be the domain name. Make sure you are in the correct directory before uploading the script. For this guide I’m using “demoguidecom
Step 3. Step 3. Once you created a new addon-domain directory. You will be able to go directly into that directory from the Addon Domains setup page. Click on “Document Root” link and it will load up File Manager and take you to the addon-domain directory created.
Step 4. Uploading the Fresh Store Builder Files. 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 “demoguide.com” directory that was created for this guide. You should see the addon-domain name you selected for your FSB setup. Then click the UPLOAD icon to upload the script.
Step 5. Click Browse and find the Fresh Store Builder zip file to upload.
Step 6. 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 the sub-folder directory that you created.
Step 7. Make sure you are extracting the zip files/folders to the correct location.
Step 8. Now you are ready to install the script. You just need to visit yourdomain.com/
Replace “yourdomain.com” with your website URL and follow the quick steps to finish the install.
Step 9. 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.
