Step – 5 Editing Config files Now you need to edit the config.php and admin/config.php. To do so open find config.php in the parent OpenCart directory. Open the config.php for editing. Now, we will need to edit the following lines of code  (9-18)  in our example, located under // DIR: define('DIR_APPLICATION', '/home/system username/ public_html /oc1551/catalog/'); define('DIR_SYSTEM', '/home/system username/ public_html /oc1551/system/'); define('DIR_DATABASE', '/home/system username/ public_html /oc1551/system/database/'); define('DIR_LANGUAGE', '/home/system username/ public_html /oc1551/catalog/language/'); define('DIR_TEMPLATE', '/home/system username/ public_html /oc1551/catalog/view/theme/'); define('DIR_CONFIG', '/home/system username/ public_html /oc1551/system/ config /'); define('DIR_IMAGE', '/home/system usernamepublic_html /oc1551/image/'); define('DIR_CACHE', '/home/system username/ public_html /oc1551/system/cache/'); define('DIR_DOWNLOAD', '/home/system username/ public_html /oc1551/download/'); define('DIR_LOGS', '/home/ stoychev /system username/oc1551/system/logs/'); Notice: Please put your website Cpanel username under system username www.inceptionsystem.com

Hire Opencart Developer Next, we need to edit the Database entries lines  (21-26)  define('DB_DRIVER', ' mysql '); define('DB_HOSTNAME', ' localhost '); define('DB_USERNAME', ‘ inception_tutorial '); define('DB_PASSWORD', ‘123456789); define('DB_DATABASE', ‘ opencarttutorial '); define('DB_PREFIX', ' oc _'); Please fill in your  USERNAME ,  PASSWORD  and  DATABASE  under the ‘DB_USERNAME’, 'DB_PASSWORD' and “DB_DATABASE’ After we are done editing the config file we need to right click on config.php and select Set Permissions. We recommend setting the permissions of config.php to  444 . This will make the file as read-only.  Next stop, we need to repeat the same procedure with  admin/config.php  file. We will find the file under admin /config.php.  Again we will edit the database settings and change the permissions of the  admin/ config.php file to  444 . www.inceptionsystem.com

Step – 6 Update of Name Servers As a last step we should update your name servers. Name servers configure the domain to point to the right host. Most hosting providers have their own name servers. The easiest way to go about this is to contact your hosting registrars and simply ask them to handle this for you. Please mind that this can take up to 48 hours to change.
