Decompress Summer Cart

  1. Obtain a Summer Cart distribution package by downloading it from Summer Cart Help-Desk. Summer Cart distribution package is in .tgz format.
  2. Upload all Summer Cart files to a web server or hosting account. Please make sure that you upload the files to a web accessible directory.

    Windows server and UNIX server without terminal access:

    • Decompress the Summer Cart distribution package archive to a local directory on your system using a compression program (WinZIP or any other compression tool that supports TAR files).
    • Use an FTP client to upload all the files from the archive (retaining the directory structure) to your server or hosting account. Please make sure that you upload the files to a web accessible directory.
    • Note: In some cases when you install Summer Cart on a UNIX server you might need to change the permissions of the following files and directories:
      chmod 777 userfiles 
      chmod 777 include/miphpf/Config.php

    UNIX server with terminal access:

    • Upload all Summer Cart files to a web server or hosting account. Please make sure that you upload the files to a web accessible directory.
    • Decompress the package using the following command:

      tar -zx summer_cart-X.Y.tgz 
      mv summer_cart-X.Y store


      where X and Y indicate Summer Cart version.

       The above command should decompress Summer Cart files, and then rename the directory. Your web store will reside in folder store now.
