Ok I'm new to oscommerce and it seems a lot of the information on the site for usage and installing addons is very "unclear" here is now how to or beginners guide and a lot of the addons themselves don't have clear instructions and Im new so I am totally lost with finding proper instructions on how or better yet "where" and what folder to install them in.

 

 

I have the laste version of the script and am looking to install this sales report addon.

 

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,8321/category,12/search,sales+report

 

the read me gives instruction on how to install basically stating the first step is to install are as follows:

 

 

1. Upload these five new files:

 

admin/stats_monthly_sales.php

admin/includes/printer.css

admin/includes/languages/english/stats_monthly_sales.php

admin/includes/languages/english/images/buttons/button_save_sort.gif

admin/includes/languages/english/images/buttons_button_sort_order.gif

 

 

but WHERE do i drop he admin folder is what Im confused on. It doesnt say. Almost every addon i download doesnt tell you where to drop the first folder and I cant find general instructions on oscommerce site on how to go about doing so.

you add it into where-ever your shop is located at your hosting. If you have renamed the admin folder you also have to take that into account when doing the upload.

I didnt rename the admin folder....the shop is installed in mysite.com/shop/ directory

everything else is left as is.

 

so I would install these files into the mysite.com/shop/admin folder ?

I'm coming from wordpress so exuse me if these questiosn sound really stupid lol

Im just so use to dropping any plugins or addons in the "plugin" folder and not having to touch root files.

Yes, that's correct. Contributions are meant for a shop so any instructions refer to the root of the shop, which, in your case, is the shop directory. Many contributions will say to upload to the catalog directory. Catalog in this context means the root of the shop, which, in your case, is the shop directory.
