Just checking the what you have done:

1. Upload the contents of the upload folder
2. Check the relevant file permissions set to 777 or 755
3. Go to the website http://www.homepage.com or http://www.homepage.com/opencart or wherever you uploaded your files to
4. Follow those on-screen instructions to fully install opencart
5. Finally delete the install directory

From your page report it looks like you have placed the whole upload folder onto your host server. The first part of the install process is to upload the contents of this folder to your host. So in your directory /web/ should be:

admin/
catalog/
download/
image/
install/
system/
config.php
index.php

Once you have done that, if you go to your domain then the install process should run ok (you should not have deleted the install folder yet!). If you are unsure, check out http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=9645 for a video demo.

If you want to move your cart from a subfolder to the root:

1. Backup your store: take 2 backups, preferably, and keep one safely away from your working files

2. Take one of the backups, and amend the config, admin/config, (and .htaccess if applicable), to reflect the new file paths. For example, in config.php:

Code: Select all

define('DIR_APPLICATION', '/home/domain/public_html/shop/catalog/');
 
becomes

Code: Select all

define ('DIR_APPLICATION', '/home/domain/public_html/catalog/'); 
etc.
Leave the database info untouched.

3. Upload your new shop files, with the amended config files, to the root of your store, eg public_html/

4. IMPORTANT: when you have completed upload, login to your admin panel, and go to system > settings >store. Change the old shop URL to the new URL. Remember the trailing slash /!

5. Test everything to be sure it works

Think that's it..
