How to move ‘My Cart’ from right to left?

Magento developers have the flexibility of determining the design of their store with the help of several changes in the settings and website’s code. Magento developers have the option of moving the My Cart box so that it may be displayed on the left side of the page. These modifications can be made with the help of following  steps:

1)      Login to your Magento account and get access to the backend panel of your store.

2)      Navigate to app/design/frontend/default/default/layout/checkout.xml.

3)      In the file located here you would find the following code
<reference name=”left”>
<block type=”checkout/cart_sidebar” name=”cart_sidebar”

4)      Replace it with the following lines
<reference name=”right”>
<block type=”checkout/cart_sidebar” name=”cart_sidebar”

5)      Save the changes that you have made.

6)      This should resolve your issue.
