Zen Cart Upgrade
Keeping your installation of Zen Cart up to date allows you to remain protected against security vulnerabilities, fixes bugs, and major upgrades also add new features and functionality. The current version of Zen Cart is 1.5.3 (check what version you are currently running). We can do the upgrade for you using the patch files we have created. Any installed modules need to have a version available for Zen Cart 1.5.3 to insure that they will continue to work. We will upgrade any out of date modules that are installed.
If your Zen Cart installation has already been hacked, upgrading it will not clean it up. In that situation we can clean up the hack and then upgrade it.
For upgrades from 1.3.x we will set up a test of the upgrade in a directory on your website so that you can test out the new version before having the upgrade applied to the live website.
We can usually upgrade your Zen Cart installation in a few days.
Hosting Requirements for 1.5.x:
(We can check with your hosting provider to make sure that these requirements are met.)
- PHP version 5.3.7 or greater (may run on as low as PHP 5.2.10, but with lesser security protections available)
- MySQL version 5.0 or greater
- Apache 2.0 or greater.
- Apache configured with AllowOverride set to either 'All' or at least both 'Limit' and 'Indexes' parameters, and preferably the 'Options' parameter as well.
- PHP configured to support CURL with OpenSSL
