In this previous post, I detailed how to run PrestaShop on a Windows Azure Virtual Machine. The end result was a test store which created the above screen shot. However, you cannot expect your users to memorize an IP address. You need to give them a domain name to use in accessing your application.
The current stack I am using is made up of Prestashop, Bitnami and Windows Azure. In getting here, I followed the following steps:
- In Godaddy under the Zone files, I changed the @ to point to 126.96.36.199
- In bitnami, I wrote a RewriteRule to point 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206/prestashop
- I restarted my Apache server in the Bitnami stack
