Since I lost access to my 1.1.7 cart content and admin and cannot find out how to retrieve them, I want to install a new 1.2.5 cart and import all necessary files to regain the old content and formatting.

Can I backup the old cart by moving the 1.1.7 public_html file to a different folder and then install 1.2.5 to my server? And if I do, how do I get the old formatting and data into the new cart?

Can I just transfer certain files from the previous cart into the same place in the new cart? And if so, which files would I transfer without bringing in old 1.1.7 items that might corrupt the new 1.2.5?

Would I need to make any changes at my web host? The php 5.3.0 is currently installed and selected there. If it is necessary or would be better, it could be changed to 5.4.45.

The link on our html homepage at to our cart brings up our layout with logo and links, but it does not access the categories or other content, nor do any of the links function. In addition, our admin page also cannot be located when I use the ADMIN_PATH ID in config.php.

I thought it was due to the php version discrepancy that I asked about in my previous post, but that is now version 5.3.0 in the index.php file and at the web host.

The cart was created in Nov 2013, so it is probably version 1.1.7. It functioned without problems until it vanished some time after Feb 2015. No changes were made by us to the cart since it was created, so some change at AbanteCart must have triggered the disappearance of the content and admin pages.

I could not find instructions how to upgrade from such an old version to the latest (1.2.5 I think), so could someone please tell me how to recover the cart and Admin pages and separately how to upgrade to the new version without losing the original formatting of the cart in the hope that would resolve everything?

Thank You.

index.php content (and cart) disappeared. File references php version 2. cpanel defaults to version 4.  File says do not change content. How do I sync these and (I hope) get my cart back online.  Or could this be due to some other problem?

Customization help / Fix awkward English of zoom text on Product page

"Mouse move on image to zoom" is incorrect English.

In dashboard>System>Localization>Language, find product_product block, key: text_zoom, and rewrite "Mouse move..." to be "Move mouse..."

Since many do not use a mouse, I prefer "Move your pointer over the image to zoom in"
