In this tutorial we will explain how to install LiteCart on an Ubuntu 14.04 VPS with Nginx, PHP-FPM and MySQL. LiteCart is a free e-commerce, feature rich e-commerce solution. The framework is constructed to be lightweight and easy for developers to modify and build upon. LiteCart relies on the latest HyperText standard HTML 5, the latest CSS 3 for styling, the jQuery framework for client-side dynamics, and the popular web scripting language PHP for server-side dynamics. REQUIREMENTS We will be using our SSD 1 Linux VPS Hosting plan for this tutorial. UPDATE THE SYSTEM Make sure your server is fully […]
Application issues, downtimes and outages are the responsibility
of IT to resolve. However, at the end of the day they are,
essentially, business issues.
Businesses compete for customers online everyday and the latter are not a patient bunch. Every second of your web application performance counts building up or taking away both revenue and brand reputation. There’s always a risk that even though your application may appear to be working fine, its flow’s key parts, such as shopping carts, registration pages, etc. may not be functioning properly. So it’s critical to have a full controll across the entire application delivery chain. With Node.js, MySQL, Oracle, Java/JMX, Log, and Tomcat application monitors, you can track your app’s performance bottom-up.

For an online shop, the website is the cash register. It has to be open for business 24 hours a day.
As the ops person on duty, when you get a call at 3am after your website went down, your priority number one is to restore the service asap. But why can we not have our application stack automatically recover, and not have the pager wake us at all? Why do we still stick to tedious manual processes, which take up time and resources, and hinder future growth?

Paytrail is a leading e-payment method provider from Finland, and is expanding globally. Established in 2007, Paytrail currently has over 4,000 business customers, works with over 350 partners and its solution is available in all SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) countries.
Paytrail offers a new online shopping solution that allows consumers to use one login for all of their online purchases. And it provides everything that is needed for online shopping in addition to traditional payment methods (bank e-payments, credit and debit card payments, invoicing and installments).
This new case study describes how Paytrail came to work with Severalnines to achieve a fault-tolerant database cluster across two data centers.
Since 2011 e-commerce has grown from $856,000,000.00 to closing out 2013 at more than $1,248,000,000,000.00 in global revenues, a nearly 41% growth rate over a two year span. The forecast for 2014 is targeted at $1,500,000,000,000.00, another 20% increase is gross revenues (see chart below). With trillions of dollars in play year on year now, and astounding revenue growth rates still ahead, it is critical that any e-commerce site be diligently monitoring not just their website uptime, but more importantly their Web applications. Obviously it is critical that your customers be able to get to your website, but if it doesn’t build fast and complete client requests and transactions even faster then you will be losing clients and revenue at an alarming rate. The latest figures show that if your site doesn’t do a full page load in 3 seconds or less, …[Read more]
