INSERT INTO `{your table_prefix}settings`( `store_id`, `group`, `key`, `value`) VALUES ( 0, 'details',   'alphavantage_api_key',  '-your-own-api-key-');

{your table_prefix} means if you have a table names `ac_settings` in your database if not then use just `settings`

To verify this go to you database and scroll at the very bottom there should be a table named `settings` if you have added some prefix to it then `prefix_settings`

News and Announcements / Re: AbanteCart 1.2.14 is now released
« on: March 18, 2019, 02:24:52 PM »

Thanks for v 1.2.14 is there a way we can see demo of v 1.2.14 ?
I have signed in for demo here at and it shows 1.2.10 not 1.2.14
I have made some custom changes to my version and I want to make sure if I should update to latest version or no as that will take lot of work.

I read all the changes here and liked that you now working on PHP 7.3 and MySQL 8.0 but if we can view the latest version's demo that would be great.

I guess I have to download the latest version and install it locally.

Thanks for all the updates and making this awesome shopping cart.

Hi I am not able to edit this
I think you should add one more line here
Go to and enable access for less secure apps.
Google needs user to confirm that they are giving permission other wise they will see PASSWORD error in AbanteCart

How-to questions / Re: Pending, Processing and Shipped question.
« on: March 04, 2019, 09:26:31 AM »

My customers tell me they are still not receiving updates I send them on their orders such as pending, processing and shipping.
I followed the instructions in the link that you sent to me so now I am wondering what else might be the problem.

I am using AbanteCart to respond to any messages I get so I am thinking that some how I have the wrong settings in my email account or something is blocking my email.

I also use gmail for the business.


1. Does your customer receive order confirmation email?
2. Have you followed these steps while setting your SMTP
3. Check in Error log there might be some errors.
4. Maybe everything is right but all your emails are going in Spam / Junk / Promotion folder

Go to and enable access for less secure apps.

SEO / Re: SEOURL - rewrite trashed in Server Restart - NO SEOURL's
« on: February 27, 2019, 09:36:01 AM »
Hi All,
So I"m faced with disabling the SEOURL feature because apparently the htaccess file is not in sync anymore with the true pointing of this feature.
To recreate ALL the SEOURLs for categories, menus, products is daunting.
Is there anyway to in mass, recreate these seourls, or what is the best procedure to do this re-creation of these seourl (friendly urls)


This is what you are looking for
You can install this extension and with one click it will add SEO url to all the products and there are other stuff that comes with this extension but I think this should fix your problem.

Does your customer get order confirmation email?

Have you checked error logs?

Look at this post for notifying customer when status changes

also one suggestion you should add some more images showing steps how to use your extension and add some more language in your description it will be more clear to other users

General Extensions / Re: My extension images are very blurry
« on: February 20, 2019, 11:12:41 AM »
it is because the image is stretched 1212 × 646 pixels (intrinsic: 750 × 400 pixels)
increase the size of your image and then upload it

I am not very clear what the issue is.

What do you try to do with server pot redirect? Why did you put pot 80 for redirect?
Do you need to have https all the time?

You can have store URL to be https as well:
Store URL =     HTTP
Secure Store URL =    HTTPS

Ok so the best way to setup a store is

Store URL =     HTTP
Secure Store URL =    HTTPS

my .htaccess should be like this for https
RewriteEngine On 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R,L]
/* no port 80*/

This htaccess change says too many redirect so I have commented it though. How can I check redirects? my .htaccess only has one redirect which is
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R,L]

my DNS should be
name = , value =
name = www , value =
/*where value = is IP of my domain */

Is this correct? because without https redirect if I hit without www icons such as cart, add button are not loaded

I guess this question has been answered but I couldn't find the right way of doing this so let me ask one more time
How to set up https correctly
In admin panel system->settings->store details
Store URL =     HTTP
Secure Store URL =    HTTPS

I do have Enable SEO turned on and my .htaccess looks like this
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R,L]

when I do this I get error on chrome and other browser saying to many redirects
when I comment last line
#RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R,L]

It works fine. Hosting people said issue is with the software and redirects. I don't have anything else in my htaccess or any other redirects I just want to send everyone to

    <value><![CDATA[%s - New Password]]></value>
    <value><![CDATA[A new password was requested from %s.]]></value>

Shall I add it here or in admin panel under language definition ?

There are other words missing like  text_new_password , error_reset_token  my version is 1.2.11

General Support / reset password email
« on: December 27, 2018, 10:32:01 AM »
Whenever customer requests to reset password an email goes from is there a way it can go from some other email addresses ? Also after password is reset they get another email that says text_password_reset I tried to find it in languages but I couldn't find it so where is this text_password_reset is coming? I need to change it

Template Support / Which CSS is rendering for phone view
« on: December 21, 2018, 12:07:21 PM »
I am having issues with fonts on my site. I am using
font-family: 'Fredoka One', cursive;
And it works fine for PC and desktop but on phone I am getting small cursive fonts. I tried to use media query but it is not working
in style.css
     /* Phone fonts*/
        /* iPad [portrait + landscape] */
    @media only screen and (min-device-width: 768px) and (max-device-width: 1024px)     {
    body {
        font-family: 'Fredoka One', cursive!important;

/* iPhone [portrait + landscape] */
@media only screen and (max-device-width: 480px) {
    body {
        font-family: 'Fredoka One', cursive!important;
It is not taking any of these CSS When I inspect on chrome browser for iphone it works fine but when I actually use my phone it is different
I have cleared cache on my phone and on AbanteCart.
Only change I made is in style.css in body tag changed font-family thats it and added the mentioned code at the bottom. i am editing right CSS file as I can see these media queries in browser when I inspect them
