Lightbulb How to install door to open outside?

I plan to replace a glass patio door with wall and regular door.
The patio door opens outside.
Can I install regular door to open outside, how? Can I simply turn around door frame and install to make it open outside?

Here's a door for example that I want to install Feather River Doors 6 Lite Craftsman Chestnut Mahogany Fiberglass Entry Door-FF3790 at The Home Depot

Thanks!

You will need to buy an outswinging door. You cannot simply turn the door around. See the "handing" part of the specifications. You will want outswing, not inswing.

Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this door comes prefinished.
