[QUOTE]CS-Cart Installation Instructions


The instructions below are about CS-Cart installation on a hosting

server accessible on the Internet. If you would like to make a CS-Cart

installation on your local computer (desktop), please download the

“How to install CS-Cart on a local computer” manual on the “File area”

page in our Customer Help Desk (

Briefly, CS-Cart installation includes the following steps:

  1. extracting the software distribution package and uploading the files

    to a web server;

  2. setting file access permissions;

  3. creating a MySQL database;

  4. running the Installation Wizard.

  1. The first step is to uncompress the CS-Cart distribution package (the

    “cscart_vX.X.X.tgz” or “” file) anywhere under your

    web server directory.

    On a WINDOWS-based server, you can do it with any TAR- or ZIP-compatible

    archive software.

    On a UNIX-based server with terminal access to it, please run one of

    the following commands depending on the package file format:

    tar -xzvf cscart_vX.X.X.tgz



    NOTE: Most versions of control panel have the so-called file manager

    that allows to unpack a TGZ or ZIP archive by one click.

    If none of the ways above works for you, you should extract the

    distribution package on your local computer using any TAR-

    or ZIP-compatible archive software, e.g. WinRAR (you can download it here:

    [url][/url]) and upload all the files to your

    server via FTP.

  2. The next step is setting file access permissions.

    On a UNIX-based server with terminal access to it, run the following

    commands one by one:

    chmod 666 config.local.php

    chmod -R 777 catalog

    chmod -R 777 images

    chmod -R 777 skins

    chmod -R 777 var

    If you do not have terminal access to your server, you can change file

    access permissions using an FTP client. Most of them have the “Change

    permissions” or “Change mode” functions. With the help of the function

    you are to set the permissions for the ‘config.local.php’ file and the

    directories above. The ‘chmod 666 config.local.php’ command means that

    you must set 666 permissions (in other words, read and write permissions

    for the file user, group and other) for the ‘config.local.php’ file. Other

    commands (e.g. ‘chmod -R 777 catalog’) mean that you must set 777 (read,

    write and execute) permissions for the directory, its subdirectories and

    all the files under these directories. Please refer to your FTP client

    documentation for more detailed instructions on setting file permissions.

    In order to set the same file access permissions on a WINDOWS-based

    server, you may need to give full permissions for the files and

    directories to the user with the IUSER_ComputerName account.

  3. Then create a MySQL database (you may need to create a MySQL user before

    that) in your website control panel. Remember the MySQL name, host, user

    name and password to use them at the next installation step.

  4. The last major installation step is running the CS-Cart Installation

    Wizard. In your browser go to the following URL:


    (replace “” with your site’s URL).[/COLOR]

    Now you should follow the Installation Wizard. The installation progress

    is shown in the ‘Installation steps’ box on the left.
