Configuring the general settings in OpenCartWritten by Tim Sisson
Once you have installed OpenCart, the next step is to configure the basic General Settings. These settings contain general information such as your store name, address, phone, and e-mail. Please see our article on installing OpenCart if you have not installed OpenCart and wish to do so.
- Log into your OpenCart dashboard.
- Go to System > Settings
- Select your store by checking the box next to the Store Name and click "Edit"
- The Settings Page will open. The General Tab should already be selected
Store Name: This is the name of your online store.
Store Owner: This is the name of the owner of the online store you created.
Address: This is the physical address of your store.
E-Mail: By default, it will have your admin email address you used during the installation process. You can change this to whatever you’d like. If you want the store to have a special email address you can set one up in cPanel. This is the email address that you will get notices for OpenCart. It will not display this address on the site.
Telephone: This is a contact phone number for your store.
Fax: If you have a fax number you wish to make public, fill in the field here.
