Checkout Error

Whenever I try to place a test order after filling out all the information. I get to a page that doesn’t do anything and displays the following message.

Placing the order. Please be patient…

Key must be less than 56 characters and non-zero. Supplied key length: 58

It seems like you have entered zero-length encryption key during the installation. This key is used by CS-Cart cryptographic system to encrypt order payment information. Please open the ‘config.php’ file which can be found in CS-Cart root directory and replace this code:

$crypt_key = '';

with this one:

$crypt_key = 'secret_key';

where you should change “secret_key” to your own secret word.
