Zen Cart® v1.5.0 was the first Open Source e-Commerce web application to be fully PA-DSS Certified.
Zen Cart® v1.6.0 brings improved templating and responsive design, in addition to increased flexibility for customizing to each storeowner's own preferences.
It's free software, with free support available 24/7 on the Zen Cart® Support Site forums at http://www.zen-cart.com/forum.php provided by our enthusiastic community of actual Zen Cart® users, integrators, and the developers themselves.
Installation is simple:
- Download Zen Cart®
- Ensure you check that the md5/sha1 hash of the Zip matches those publicly posted.
- The md5/sha1 values for verifying the zip files hosted at Sourceforge are displayed on the Zen Cart® website along with instructions on how to verify the file using the hash values.
- Unzip the downloaded zip file
- Everything inside the folder you unzipped needs to be uploaded to your webserver … for example, into your public_html or www or html folder (the folder will already exist on your webserver)
- In your browser, enter the address to your site, such as:
www.your_site.com(or if you uploaded it into another foldername use
- Rename the
configure.phpand make the files writable (so the install process can write your configuration information into them after you answer a few questions in the following steps).
- Also make the
/logsfolders writable. (You will be prompted about making other folders writable during installation)
- Follow the instructions that appear in your browser for installation.
That's the abbreviated version of installation instructions!
