When using premium website builder, how do you add software tools like OpenCart? PWB doesn't seem to be that flexible - maybe I'm missing something on how it works.

Thank you for your question wtdog!

Programs like OpenCart are not compatible with the Plesk builder as they are self standing websites. In order to use Open Cart with the Web builder, you will want to install OpenCart on a subdomain and link to it using the External link. Here are the steps:

1. Set up a subdomain
How do I create a subdomain in my control panel (cpanel)?

2. Install OpenCart
Installing OpenCart Manually

3. Create an External link to the subdomain

Unfortunately, the builder will not be able to integrate any eCommerce software within it other than the eshop.
