App Installer - How to set up nopCommerce

Before you start, please refer to this Knowledge Base article to ensure that your site meets the basic requirements for nopCommerce to run smoothly on our servers. 

The first step is to create a MS SQL database in Control Panel.
Then go to your Winhost Control Panel, and under "Site Tools" click the App Installer.
Find nopCommerce in the App Installer and click "Select this Application >>."
To install nopCommerce directly in the root of your site, make sure the "AppPath" field is left blank.

Click the URL link when the App Installer has completed uploading nopCommerce. If your domain name is not pointing to Winhost yet, use the secondary URL provided with your account in the Site Info Section.
