If there’s one thing the Internet has revolutionized, it’s commerce. Now almost any store needs a website to offer its products and services, but it also needs to be able to function as an online store where you can purchase right there.

:~$ mkdir prestashop

:~$ sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html/prestashop

Now create a new Virtualhost for Prestashop.

<VirtualHost *:80>
   ServerAdmin admin@your_domain.com
   DocumentRoot /var/www/html/prestashop
