Installation Instructions for OpenCart 2.x

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

These installation instructions assume that you have either a fresh or a customized installation of OpenCart -

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:

Step 3

Go to Extensions > Modules > OCWP and click the Install button.

Step 4

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

Step 5

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

Step 6

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

OCMod (Modification) changes

OCWP ships with an OCMod modification file which adds a few new functions and changes to your admin panel. This is an overview of these changes.

The modification can be seen in Extensions > Modifications with the name OCWP Modifications by iSenseLabs.

Visibility of WordPress tables in Backup / Restore

Typically, if your WordPress has a database table prefix which is different than your OpenCart table prefix, no WordPress tables will be visible in Tools > Backup / Restore. The OCWP modification makes the WordPress tables visible, allowing you to backup your WordPress database tables from the OpenCart admin panel.

For developersIf you have already linked your WordPress with OCWP, but do not know your WordPress table prefix, you can get it with $this->config->get('ocwp_table_prefix'). This can be done after you have installed and fully configured OCWP which will be explained later in this document.
