Reinstalling An Offline Cscart

13 June 2016 - 06:59 PM

I was previously running CSCart Multivendor 3.0 on a Xampp installation, the OS had to be reinstalled, I have a backup of my xampp folder and a dump of my sql tables from phpmyadmin.

I reinstalled Xampp, copied my htdocs and SQL tables back in using phpmyadmin, but my Cscart is broken.I had to change my default SSL port from 443 to 444 as it was being used.


Is there anyway to get the cart back on-line?

Will Cscart Ever Move To Css Templates

12 June 2016 - 11:59 AM

The only thing I never liked about CsCart was its use of Smarty.

I know Smarty is supposed to be easier than CSS but I think using it is actually a major disadvantage.


1 - When it comes to making custom templates, it is clumsy and actually more difficult than CSS.

2 - We are limited in the developers we can tend projects to.

3 - It is slower than CSS.


I think switching to CSS would be a better idea, or even have support for Smarty and CSS Templates, a bigger developer pool would give us a greater variety of templates, the more developers templating would mean CsCart would become even more popular.

Cscart Speeds

I am running an older version of CSCart, Multivendor 3, I was wondering is there any significant speed improvement in the later versions?

Xampp Install Issue

11 June 2016 - 09:52 PM

I am doing a fresh install with an older version of Cs Cart Multi vendor version 3.0 on a fresh install of Xampp 7.0.6 , I am getting the following error

Warning: session_start(): Session callback expects true/false return value in C:\xampp\htdocs\cscart\core\classes\session.php on line 277

Fatal error: session_start(): Failed to initialize storage module: user (path: C:\xampp\tmp) in C:\xampp\htdocs\cscart\core\classes\session.php on line 277

I have confirmed that the cscart tables exist in phpmyadmin. I get the same error in all browsers.
