Cannot edit the default page, which renders the entire exercise useless. The file cannot be written to, even though it is chmod 777. Yeah, I read the DOCs. Yeah, I followed the instructions. Yeah, I'm very comfortable with the terminal. Yeah, I know: it must be me. And yet ... I administer plenty of LAMP configurations on two continents. That's three hours I'll never get back (reading and documenting work takes time). Every project I use from sourceforge, and other sites, I donate to. That would be projects in the dozens, by the way. Can't donate to yours as ... it doesn't work for me.

    I have used this regularly for over a year, love it and would be hard-pressed to use anything else.

    I have used this on four different shopping sites and as an open source product it offers everything the commercial products claim. If you are looking for a shopping cart, this is it. This product is flexible, highly configurable out of the box with so many options that I have used it in a number of different sites, all different in their operation.

    I really like this product and can't give it a thumbs-down, although I have had much trouble manipulating the site and the software to get my site right, I read the forums but there are no real direct answers there. Can't anyone just make things straight forward anymore. This template loaded flawlessly though and there was a lot of good instruction and direction at that stage and I was hopeful. I may have to site my lack of understanding and knowledge of php and css, but the documentation could have been a bit more helpful.

    I've been using Zencart since 2005. It's flexible, feature-rich and fairly easy to configure and style, once you've climbed the learning curve. It isn't perfect. The admin can be confusing and some people have problems wrapping their heads around the templating system, but I looked (and continue to look) at all the free or affordable carts out there, and I haven't seen anything that has tempted me to switch. It may not be the best choice for a very large store (or a PostgreSQL fanboi), but for small to medium sized sites, it's the best available, and the support forum is the best on the Internet.

    Where's the PostgreSQL support? MySQL is CRAP for use in real world business. It doesn't scale without a whole lot of tweaking and plugins. In a world where the CRUD must stand up to the ACID tests, MySQL doesn't cut it. PostgreSQL is enterprise-ready immediately "out-of-the-box".

    Horrendously coded, rubbish admin interface, outdated (no releases in 2 years). Zen Cart may appear to have more features out-of-the-box than some of the newer carts, but beware -- it will not scale well, it is a nightmare to develop for (and if you do, upgrades will become an additional headache), and the hacked and unorganised nature of the code is a recipe for bugs and security holes. If you are running a business, you will not want to get locked-in to something this fragile and potentially insecure.

    At first it looks great, tonnes of features + addons, more than you'll ever need. But after using it, I found the options manager weird and hard to understand. Some of the addons require patching the sql and/or the actual files of zencart. The upgrade process is very manual, requiring a diff of your site vs. the version your site is based on and then patching it to the new software version. And eventually my site became a brick(an unusable site) after upgrading from 1.2 to 1.3. All the products/category data disappeared. If you don't want to waste time upgrading or installing addons or lose all your data in the future look elsewhere.

    keep up the good work and don't pay attention to the babies who are to lazy to write their own cart but not lazy enough to whine.
