When opentaps is first installed the eCommerce store is located at the same address (URL) as the rest of the opentaps system and in the directory /ecommerce of that address. Thus, your Customer would have to access the eCommerce site by browsing to something like this:

http://your_companies_URL_for_opentaps.com:8080/ecommerce/subdirectories

Also, the opentaps business management system is by default located at:

http://your_companies_URL_for_opentaps.com:8080/opentaps/subdirectories

While this will work, you may prefer that Customers not use the same URL as your system management site, but rather a URL that you have chosen specifically for your eCommerce business. You may prefer that Customers not be required to enter the /ecommerce directory before they see your eCommerce home page. The following configuration will put your eCommerce site on it's own address independent of the URL you are using for the opentaps management system.
