installing Ultimate Edition on local computer

Hi everyone,

I ordered the pre-sale of the Ultimate Edition, downloaded from http://forum.cs-cart…-3-rc-released/.

When I tried to install on my laptop, after successfully created all the tables, it stopped at “Create demo catalog”, saying “Error occurred”.

Does anyone know why this happened?

Many thanks


We get the same error with every attempt to install ultimate on a local machine.



Latest MySQL

Latest PHP

File/folder permissions ok

Hello all,

Thank you for your messages.

I am really sorry to hear that you have experienced this problem. It seems that it occurred because strict mode is enabled for your MySQL server. Please replace the following part of code:

// Uncomment this line if you experience problems with mysql5 server (disables strict mode)
//define('MYSQL5', true);

with this one:

// Uncomment this line if you experience problems with mysql5 server (disables strict mode)
define('MYSQL5', true);

in the config.php file located in the root directory of your CS-Cart installation. After that try to install CS-Cart one more time.

Please check it.

Don't know if the original poster still has this issue, but we do.

Tried reinstalling Windows, MySQL and PHP

Tried your suggestion

Also tried replacing

[color=#b22222][font=courier new,courier,monospace]$config['db_type'] = 'mysql';[/font][/color]


[color=#B22222]$config['db_type'] = 'mysqli';[/color]

As suggested at:

CS-Cart Documentation — CS-Cart 4.15.x documentation

Also turned on development mode to see errors by adding:

define('DEVELOPMENT', true);

to config.local.php

[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Ensured file and folder permissions are set correctly.

Also tried pre-creating the database, not creating it at all

I know it's not the MySQL database, as we are running 36 databases on it successfully.
