Updating Your ProductCart Store

About updating your store

Updating your ProductCart-powered e-commerce store is different from updating a software application that runs on your desktop. For a variety of technical reasons, we cannot provide you an executable file that takes care of everything for you. Instead, we provide you with (1) a set of updated files, (2) a database update script (when the database needs to be updated), and (3) detailed instructions on which steps you need to take (see below for links to specific update instructions).

It's crucial that you take time to carefully read the update/upgrade instructions, and that you first of all protect yourself against the possibility of something going wrong by backing-up your store before starting the update process.

ProductCart v3

  • ProductCart v3.51 Patch
    The v3.51 Patch is a small maintenance update. You don't need it if you installed ProductCart v3.51 or updated to ProductCart v3.51 after 02.27.09. Check the file that you downloaded and look at the date that is part of the *.zip file name: if the file name includes “022709”, then that file already includes the 3.51 Patch.

How to find ProductCart software updates

Where and how do you find software updates for ProductCart?

  • Official releases (i.e. version changing releases) → Click on “Help > Check for Updates” in your ProductCart Control Panel
  • Patches (i.e. smaller updates, in-between releases) → They are listed here and in the ProductCart Support Center
  • Individual bug fixes (i.e. targeting a specific, recently discovered bug) → They are listed in the “Just In” section of the ProductCart Support Center

Official releases include all patches and individual bug fixes that were released since the previous, official release. For example, version 4.1 - when available in 2010 - will include everything that was released since version 4.0 was initially made available.
