Installation Instructions for OpenCart 2.x

Before you beginIf your OpenCart is not a fresh installation, files and database backup is highly recommended.

OpenCart 2.x introduces the Extension Installer feature, which we will use:

  1. Unzip the downloaded .zip file into a new folder.

  2. Login to your OpenCart admin panel and go to Extensions > Extension Installer. Upload the file *.ocmod.zip , for your specific OpenCart version on your computer, which is in the folder you created in Step 1.

    NoteIf you receive an error, this most probably 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 A: Go to System > Settings > Edit > FTP and update your FTP settings. After you are done, try uploading ProductManager again. If it does not work and you receive an error, follow step B.

    STEP B: Go to this link: http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=18892 and download and install the Quickfix for the OpenCart Extension installer. Before installing, make sure that the Quickfix extension is compatible with the version of your OpenCart. After you are done, try uploading ProductManager again. If this does not help, try to manually install the module.

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

  4. Go to System > Users > User Groups, click Edit of your admin user group (i.e. Top Administrator). Make sure that you have given Access & Modify permissions for ProductManager.

Now ProductManager is installed. You can access it from Catalog > Product Manager. Congratulations!
