You can host OpenCart on OVHcloud by using their Cloud VPS or Dedicated Servers. Here are the steps to install OpenCart on OVHcloud:

  1. Choose a Cloud VPS or Dedicated Server from OVHcloud based on your requirements and budget.
  2. Once you have access to your server, log in via SSH or use the provided control panel.
  3. Install a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) on your server. You can use the following commands for Ubuntu/Debian-based systems: sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade sudo apt install apache2 mysql-server php libapache2-mod-php php-mysql
  4. Download the latest version of OpenCart from the official website (https://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=cms/download).
  5. Upload the OpenCart zip file to your server using FTP or SCP.
  6. Extract the OpenCart files in the desired directory of your web server (e.g., /var/www/html).
  7. Set the appropriate file permissions for OpenCart files and directories: sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/opencart sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html/opencart
  8. Configure a MySQL database for OpenCart by creating a new database and user.
  9. Set up a virtual host in your Apache configuration file using a text editor. Specify the domain or IP address and the document root directory for OpenCart.
  10. Save the Apache configuration file and restart the Apache service: sudo systemctl restart apache2
  11. Access the OpenCart installation wizard using your domain or IP address in a web browser. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
  12. After the installation, remove the installation folder from your server for security purposes: sudo rm -r /var/www/html/opencart/install


That's it! You have successfully installed OpenCart on your OVHcloud server. You can now start customizing and configuring your OpenCart online store.
