Hello all.

I would like to hear your advice, if possible,  based on experience 
about what Shopping cart other than OSCommerce consider as an 
excellent choice to be run under FreeBSD.

With a provider where I had a dedicated server, not running FreeBsd , 
the entire server was hacked and before leaving them, the tech 
support people said that the hacking was because of a problem with 
some libraries under PHP AND OSCOMMERCE. They never could prove that 
but I leave them since the entire server was hacked, not information 
stolen but ONLY that$ all  web pages (.html, .php) pages where 
changed, all under different domains  and account jailed (?) using 
CPANEL. Anyway. I am not sure how sensible is OSCCOmmerce to that 
since I know it is very popular but I would like to test something else.

I know there are tons of options but would like to hear your comments 
about what are you using and what do you recommend me to try that 
have proved that runs fine under Freebsd.

The idea is to have  4 domains running the same software (could be 
multiple instances) under different DOMAINS: If possible that would 
be multilangua or at least that support English and Spanish, free and 
it does not matter if uses PHP or something else. SOmething important 
is that my test machine is an old one running Freebsd 7.3, 2 
processors 386 with 1 GB of RAM, once I have running all without 
problems will move to a newer one that will run Freebsd 8.1.

Thanks in advance.
