Upgrade your Zen Cart to the latest version. We have the expertise - satisfaction guaranteed!
On 06 May 2016 Zen Cart® Version 1.5.5a was released.
Zen Cart® v1.5.5a requires a minimum of the following on the server it is hosted on:
- Zen Cart v1.5.5 is compatible with PHP 5.2.10 through PHP 7.0, and MySQL 5.1 thru 5.7
(Note: PHP versions older than 5.6 are deprecated and no longer supported by PHP ... You REALLY should be using PHP 5.6 as a minimum, for both security and speed benefits.)
- MySQL 5.1 - 5.7
- Apache 2.2 - 2.4
- 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
- Server's CURL and OpenSSL configured to use the latest modern TLS capabilities (particularly TLS 1.2 is quickly becoming mandatory)
Linux/Apache servers are recommended by the developers of Zen Cart for best results, superior performance, and ease use.
If done the right way an upgrade is much like starting over on a new website, with the exception of the design / logo / header / color scheme, etc. The software must be installed, the database updated, the old design files updated to the latest version and much, much more.
As the Zen Cart site is upgraded, so are some of the modules or add-ons" that have been written to extend Zen Cart's capabilities. This price is for an upgrade of the store with no upgrade of installed modules. If your store has add-ons/plugins installed, we first need to establish if your installed plugins are compatible with the latest version or if new update versions of your plugins are available. To find out if your installed plugins are compatible or can be upgraded please contact me first.
Please note that additional charges for the upgrade of installed plugins will apply.
I will not attempt to upgrade a Zen Cart® installation which is hosted on a GoDaddy or Windows server.
