General Support / Where is an Error Log File?
« on: June 10, 2013, 09:20:05 PM »
If you need to report a problem or post a question about some problem in AbanteCart, developers on the forum might ask about last record of errors in the error log.

Error log can be accessed with 2 different methods.

1. Admin Error Log can be accessed at Admin -> System -> Logs -> Error Log.

2. In case you can not access admin you can locate error log directly in the file /system/logs/error.txt

Do not post all the errors or warnings from your log. Try to point only exact error record(s) that is related to the question or problem you report.

Support / Expedited Support and Development
« on: May 22, 2013, 08:33:08 AM »
As AbanteCart grow progress and expand with new features, our development team work very hard to fix possible issues, improve and expand with requests as we get them.
Unfortunately, not all requests can be addressed within short time frames.

Below is the list of the cases when we can expedite issue resolution and provide expedited fix or development:

1. Issue reported is related to the core functionality and issue cause application to fail on main features or make application unusable.  This is based on original distribution of the software.
Problems can be reported based on this post,105.0.html

2. If you are very active on the forum with answers to others and help community in some other form.

3. You are partner or sponsor to our project.

4. If you need extension for third party service or integration, you can contact that third party company, and ask them to get in touch with AbanteCart to establish partnership. Once partnership is established, extension can be developed faster and possibly free.   

5. Custom development or commercial support
If you need help with managing AbanteCart or developing custom features, check our partners that can help you:
