So you installed a new module to your OpenCart store, but you see Permission Denied error and cannot access it’s administration page. If you have no idea how to fix it, here’s a short tutorial how to do it.
In this tutorial I will provide you with detailed instructions on how to install OpenCart on any hosting account. It’s very simple and straightforward, you won’t need any special IT or coding skills – just a basic computer knowledge.
Just after installing any version of OpenCart you may notice that if you have multiple level categories in your store, subcategory products are not shown in parent or top category. That might be an issue for some. But there is a simple and quick solution for that. You just need vQmod in your system and one small free OpenCart extension.
Anyone who uses OpenCart store with large filter list knows that default filter logic might be a bit strange and a unexpected. For example, if you have filter groups Color and Size, and customer selects Color->Red, and Size->5, OpenCart shows all products that have red color, and all products that have size 5 at the same time. Instead of showing all red pruducts that are size 5.
In other words, default OpenCart does not combine filters with each other. So you may need an extension that can change that behaviour.
If you just installed a fresh OpenCart shopping cart system to your host you probably noticed that your store address does not contain www symbols in it – for example url is http://your.store instead of http://www.your.store. It may not be a big deal – your store will work just fine, but redirecting store to www does have some benefits – at least for search engines which love to see websites in that way. So how to solve it?
