Upgrade / Re: upgrade.sql not included in the 1.3.4 upgrade package
« on: April 01, 2024, 05:55:16 PM »
My be useful to know, to accommodate 1.2.1 the server PHP version is 5.6.  I need to switch to PHP8 which requires Abantecart 1.3.4

Upgrade / upgrade.sql not included in the 1.3.4 upgrade package
« on: April 01, 2024, 04:29:36 PM »
I have a store that was way back on 1.1.9. I upgraded to 1.2.1 through the admin panel but then it didn't give me any notifications to go further. So I tried entering in abantecart_upgrade_122 and get an error. I read that you have to hit each version all the way up, but kept getting an error so I tried abantecart_upgrade_134 and get this error:
 Error: Can't upgrade package. Newer package version is already installed.

The version showing at the bottom is 1.2.1 so I don't get this. So I thought I would try to follow the instructions for the manual upgrade but the package I downloaded "abantecart_1.3.4_upgrade_only" does not have the upgrade.sql file in it and I can't find anywhere to download it. How do I get this file?

I wish the auto upgrade would work. Please advise how to get up to 1.3.4. I need to update my PHP version to 8.0 on the server.

I found a solution! 

I found the module for weight based shipping had some flexibility. So I set all products to 1 pound and then in the rates entered 1:8.00,2:9.00,3:10.00 and so on. Since each item was listed as 1 pound it treated them as number of items instead of weight.  Then I had to go into the languages and change "Weight Based Shipping" to "USPS Priority Mail" to match what we wanted the option to be.

I also found that the default free shipping extension would indeed show up as a choice. So I set this at a minimum of .01 to make it always a choice.

As a suggestion, maybe add a parameter to per item shipping module to allow first item one price and additional items a second price. Other "carts" have the ability to do this and it seems it would be an easy add.

Also, it would be nice to have the ability in the extension to set the title of what that extension shows up as.

Thanks for the reply. I was aware of the differences. Neither option fulfills the need. We need an option to choose "free shipping" by first class mail, or opt for priority mail  at $8 for the first item and $1 for each additional item. Both of the existing free options come in not as a choice, but forced when conditions are satisfied.

I'm finding the shipping extensions to not be very flexible. Any other suggestions?

I need to be able to offer two shipping choices.
1. Free First Class with USPS
2. Priority Mail (USPS) at $8 for the first item and $1 for each additional item.

I'm having trouble finding a configuration of extensions that will accomplish this. First, the per-item module doesn't offer a second price for additional items. Second, it seems if I add Free Shipping as an option, then it overrides the other options price and lists all options as free.

Any ideas on how to configure to get the desired result?

Disregard question 2. The theme had set all class font sizes to pixels. I set a body font size and then converted all font-size to em values.

THANK YOU! I looked on the remote server and currency.php was not where you said. Maybe something went wrong with install. I uploaded the page and it worked perfectly. Much appreciated!

Support / Currency - Page Not Found

Two things I'm trying to figure out:

1. I need to set currency for US Dollars only. When I navigate to System > Localization > Currency it gives me "Page Not Found! The page you are looking for could not be found! Please contact your administrator if the problem persists."  I don't see any other settings for currency. Is something wrong with my installation? Everything else is working fine.  The currency drop down is showing on the site with 3 selections, so I know it is getting this from somewhere.

2. I want to change the overall font size of the site. I'm running AbanteCart Version 1.2.12 with the Monnika theme. I've opened the style.css and changed a few things which worked, so I know I found the active stylesheet. If I try to add font-size in body{} nothing happens. I even tried !important. Does anyone know where the default font size for the site is entered?
