this would be more helpful if the above tutorials had links to working solutions instead of links to threads with people arguing about the best way to do it

thanks though!

Hi guys.
I started keeping some notes while setting up my OpenCart store in the belief that they might help others to install and configure their OpenCart store.

I've still got a heap of notes to add to the site and will keep at it as time allows but hopefully the ones there now are helpful.
I'm not a developer and I know nothing of code, I'm just very thankful to Daniel and all the regular contributors here for a fantastic product. I wanted to give something back and I thought this might be a way to contribute. My notes can probably be improved dramatically so let me know if you think I need to change any of them.
Thanks
LB.
