Instructions On Security Alert Email


I would really appreciate some help with this, as my store is now down. A couple of days ago I received an email from CS-Cart advising that I should change the URL of my admin page due to a security issue. I took this action, and then pointed to the new URL within the config.local.php file. Immediately this caused problems. The store went down, displaying thw words “CS-Cart is not installed. Please click here to start the installation process: Install”

After this happened I immediately changed everything back to how it was before I made the changes, but still the same problem.

Any ideas as to what to do next would be greatly appreciated.


It is strange that this message appears because it means that the “install” folder exists in the root directory of your CS-Cart installation so it is better to remove this folder.

After that you should contact Simtech's support team for assistance -

Best regards

Clear the cache after changing the admin url (I.e. manually remove the contents of var/cache directory)
