    I heard that Yahoo Merchant Solutions is very reliable.

    There are a plethora of free options out there for what you're wanting. http://www.opensourcecms.com is a good place to look. They have a section for ecommerce sites.

    How safe is it to use OpenSource applications as a form of e-commerce?

    You can think of it in two ways really. The first is that the more money you pay, your getting a better and safer system (maybe true). But the second is that if it is Open Source then the amount of experienced programmers who have made it and improved it over time will likely be very high and the application highly tested.

    Personally I have found Open Cart to be pretty good, and free is my favourite price!

    The programmers will be very high? I know what you're getting at. I'll take a look into OpenCart. I have a e-commerce project coming up soon.

    I like OpenCart - and there are several ways to make it more secure.


    1.) When you are installing it, make the database prefix something other than oc_ or opc_ . Use your imagination, but record it somewhere in case you need to modify the db for any reason.

    [COLOR=rgb(51, 51, 51)]2.) Always immediately delete the install directory when the shop is working.[/COLOR]

    3.) Change the permissions for [COLOR=rgb(51, 51, 51)]the following files to 444 or 644:[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(51, 51, 51)]config.php[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(51, 51, 51)]index.php[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(51, 51, 51)]admin/config.php[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(51, 51, 51)]admin/index.php[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(51, 51, 51)]system/startup.php[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgb(51, 51, 51)]4.) The admin folder; change [/COLOR][COLOR=rgb(51, 51, 51)]the name, make it a pretty cryptic name e.g. "not4you_min"[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(51, 51, 51)]Then open the admin\config.php file and replace "admin" with "the_new_name"[/COLOR]
