Installation Instructions for OpenCart 2.x

WarningIf your OpenCart is not a fresh installation, files and database backup is highly recommended.

Important iSearchCorporate is an addition which must be uploaded over an existing iSearch 4.3 (or newer). Make sure you have an installed iSearch version 4.3+ before proceeding with the installation/upgrade of iSearchCorporate.

Important As of iSearchCorporate 3.3, there are major changes and improvements to the code structure. Any custom modifications on previous versions of iSearch/iSearchCorporate will probably not work. Consider this before deciding to update to iSearchCorporate 3.3+

These installation instructions assume that you have either a fresh or a customized installation of whichever version of OpenCart 2.

Step 1

Unzip the downloaded ZIP file into a new folder.

Step 2

Login to your OpenCart admin panel and go to Extensions > Extension Installer. Upload the file, which is in the folder you created in Step 1.

NoteIf you receive an error "Could not connect as...", this means that your OpenCart FTP settings are not properly configured, or FTP is not enabled on your server. To resolve this, follow these steps:
  • Go to System > Settings > Edit > FTP and update your FTP settings. After you are done, try uploading again. If it does not work and you receive the same error "Could not connect as...", follow the next step.
  • Go to this link: and download and install the Quickfix for the OpenCart Extension Installer. After you are done, try uploading again.

Step 3

Go to Extensions > Modules > iSearch Corporate and click the Install button.

Step 4

Go to Extensions > Modifications and click the blue Refresh button on the top right.

Step 5

iSearch Corporate is now installed. You can access it from Extensions > Modules > iSearch Corporate.

Step 6

If you are using the iSearch Corporate module on a live server, make sure to insert your license key in the Extensions > Modules > iSearch Corporate > Support.

NoteIf you are using the module on a test server, feel free to use it without a license. The license is needed to grant you access to Premium iSenseLabs support and downloads for future updates of iSearch Corporate.

Upgrade Instructions

Follow the installation instructions above.

Important As of version 3.3.2, we added an Update button on the top right in the iSearchCorporate admin panel. Click it after updating to make sure all iSearch-related events are properly hooked.

When you are done, go to the module and click Save.

We suggest you also go to the tab iSearchCorporate and click the button Refresh cache - this will make sure your cached product information is up-to-date.
