Step 1 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Get a domain name & web hosting with iPage

I recommend using iPage. You can save money by buying a 1-year plan and not getting domain privacy. If you want to buy an SSL certificate, buy the SSL certificate at the first stage in the checkout process to get it the cheapest.

Step 2 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Install WordPress

In the iPage control panel, click on “Wordpress.” Use the Mojo Marketplace installer to install WordPress. Be sure to install it on your domain ending in .com (and not .ipage) and keep the directory empty (and yes – it’s OK to overwrite it).

Step 3 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Install WooCommerce

Go to WooCommerce and create an account. Install it using their 1-click installation. Then go through the installer program. Be sure to add PayPal as your payment processor, and select Stripe IF you purchased an SSL certificate.

Step 4 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Add free shipping

Go to the shipping settings in WooCommerce and create a shipping zone. Target worldwide and select it to be free shipping.

Step 5 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Install Mystile

Mystile is a free WordPress theme. Download it (make sure you have verified your WordPress account first), upload it to your store and then activate it.

Step 6 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Get a WooDropship account

Go to WooDropship and sign up for a free trial account. Then install the Chrome extension.

Step 7 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Add products

Open your chrome browser. Go to Aliexpress and search for the product you want to add. Click the WooDropship button to add the product to your Import list. Switch back to WooDropship and go to your Import list. Replace the title and description with your desired title/description. Click “push to store.”

Click edit on the product that WooDropship has pushed to your store:

* Edit the formatting
* Change the price and edit product variations
* Change to a full-width page layout
* Add a short product description
* Remove and edit the photos in the image gallery
* Put your product in it’s correct category

Step 8: Update the sidebar

Go to widgets. Delete all of the widgets in the primary sidebar. Find the “WooCommerce Products” widget and place it in here. Keep the settings as they are and click save.

Step 9: Add a custom logo

In the Mystile general settings tab, upload your custom logo. Have it set to hide the site title and tagline.

Step 10: Update the footer

In the Mystile settings click footer customization. Scroll down and tick “enable custom footer (right).” Keep the box empty and save changes.

Step 11: Update the homepage

Create a new page and set it to be the homepage in the reading settings. Add a banner image, text copy and add this shortcode to show the 8 latest products: [recent_products per_page=”8″ columns=”4″]

Step 12: Create an about us

Create a new page. Title it “About Us.” Add in website copy and at least 1 image, then save the page.

Step 13: Create a custom menu

Create a menu: Homepage, products (with submenu under this containing product categories), cart, checkout, about us & my account.

Step 14: Launch your store

Click on the button in the dashboard that turns off the “coming soon” page – done!

This Linux command tutorial shows you some examples of how to run the Linux man command using popular, commonly used command options.

The Linux man Command

The Linux man command is used to view Linux “man pages” and these “man” (for “manual”) pages describe thousands of Linux commands and concepts.

Linux Tips: The Linux man pages are written in “geek-speak” and are tricky to read and understand.

Once you’ve been working with Linux for a while (and you’re no longer a new Linux user), you will want to be able to use the man command to quickly do things like: look up a Linux command option, learn a new Linux concept, find out about various directories and files in the Linux file system, and learn about the settings in Linux text (configuration) file.

Linux man Command Tutorial – Showing Examples of Using man Command Options

The Linux command examples shown below have been designed to work with all Linux distributions (versions). And if you run all these Linux commands yourself, you’ll have a mini Linux command tutorial.

So fire up Linux and give it a try – it’s a great way to get Linux training!

Linux man Command Tutorial – Using the Man Command without Any Options

To learn about a single Linux command, like the find command, use the following example and replace “find” with the name of the Linux command you need to learn more about.

]$ man find

This will display the “man” page for the find command.

A Practical Linux man Command Example – Using the Man Command with the -f Option

Let’s say it’s absolutely necessary to see all of the man pages that are available on the mkdir command, but there is more than one man page (file) for this Linux command.

Linux Tips: The man pages that are available to you are dependant on the Linux distribution (version) you are using and on the number of Linux software programs you have installed on your system. More Linux software programs = more man pages to describe the programs (and concepts).

To see all of the man pages for a Linux command or concept, use the -f option of the man command as shown in the example below.

]$ man -f mkdir

On some Linux systems, the output (on the screen) of the above command will be:

mkdir (1) – make directories

mkdir (2) – create a directory

Linux Tips: Some Linux systems will only have one man page for the mkdir command.

This output shows you that there are two man pages for the mkdir command. Notice that a (1) and (2) appears in the output for the mkdir command.

Linux Tips: If you just ran the command: man mkdir rather than using the -f option, then you would only see one man page and you would be missing all the info on the other man page(s).

Linux man Command Example – Specifying the Man Page Number with the Man Command

If there is more than one man page and you want to see a specific man page, you need to specify the man page number that you want to see. Otherwise, you will just see the first man page.

For example, to see man page 2 for the mkdir command, you run the following Linux command.

]$ man 2 mkdir

If you just ran the above command without the number 2 in it, you would see man page 1 and never see man page 2.

Beyond This “Linux Command Tutorials” Article

Man pages can be useful once you get to know how to use Linux a bit. But most people don’t usually understand man pages until they’ve been working with Linux for a while.

As part of your Linux training, you also need to learn how to use the man command to: search for a “string” of text in multiple man pages, search for text in a “section” of man pages and also search for specific text within a man page.

A common and useful Linux training method for a new Linux user is to use a simple Linux book (or Linux ebook) or get some Linux video tutorials. Linux videos are an excellent way to get easy Linux training. Just watch a bit, pauseFree Reprint Articles, and then try the Linux task or command yourself!
