Installing modules

Before starting installation of a new commercial module, you should upgrade your cart license to the new version which includes this new module.

The new "License Certificate" is in "My Licenses" section of your X-Cart Account:

  • Click the "Certificate" link opposite the corresponding license. The "License certificate" window will appear.
  • Copy the whole license text and paste into the "License" window under the "License" section in the cart admin area. The license text has two parts (customer information and license key). You should copy the full text of the licence (both parts).

In order to install a module, select the 'Modules' section in the 'Settings' menu of the Administrator Zone. The list of currently installed add-on modules will appear (Figure 7-1) with activated modules coming first, followed by deactivated ones.
