osCommerce can be installed on any server where a web server with PHP has been installed on and has access to a MySQL database server.
This includes shared servers, dedicated servers, and even locally on the computer you are currently using, using Linux, Unix, BSD, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
Great care has been taken to ensure that:
- osCommerce runs on all PHP versions from 4.0 to the latest version, while at the same time taking advantage of new PHP features introduced since the PHP 4.1 series and remaining compatible to 4.0+ versions.
- osCommerce runs on all PHP enabled web servers, in both module and CGI based installations, on many operating systems
- osCommerce runs on most server specific configurations ranging from dedicated servers to shared servers that utilize different PHP configurations such as register_globals and safe_mode restrictions
