Setting Up A CGI Script On Your Web Site
Before you set up any scripts you will need some information about your server. You can get this by e-mailing your web hosting provider. It's good to have these on hand before you try to set up a script. You may not need all of the information for each script, but some of the larger scripts demand more information to work. The information you may need is:
Relative Path Which is the relative path to your server, not the HTML path. A sample is: /home/yourlogin/public_html/
HTML Path To Your Server Which is the URL path to your server, for example: http://yourdomain....
Developing A Login System With PHP And MySQL
Most interactive websites nowadays would require a user to log in into the website's system in order to provide a customized experience for the user. Once the user has logged in, the website will be able to provide a presentation that is tailored to the user's preferences.

When I set up my website I felt paypal was a very simple and easy solution when people wished to purchase my products.
For 6 months I was getting 150-200 unique visitors a day, and yet only a few sales every week. And then I read somewhere that people are put off by Paypal?.
