MySQL is the issue, and correct me if I am wrong Emerson, but don't you need MySQL 5 if you are running PHP 5?

Hi David, they're saying that along with the PHP 5 upgrade, MySQL 5 is going to be upgraded as well. X-Cart 4.0.x has issues with MySQL 5. it's more of a MySQL issue than a PHP issue


Padraic/Emerson, unless someone else takes care of it first, I'll look through the proposed fixes in the forum, make sure it applies to all area of X-Cart 4.0, make sure it's in a Patch form, and upload the patch for testers to have a go at it. If one of you guys would be interested in coordinating this, gathering some willing testers, etc, that'd be great.

Yes, both php and mysql would be upgraded to 5

So the issue is on both ends.

And to be clear. Both PHP4 and MySQL 4 are EOL

PHP4 EOL is 08/08/08
MySQL 4 EOL is 12/31/08

I am spreading the word out.
If you want let me know and I can setup a server as a test bed.

That would be great...just get some stock 4.0 carts in various versions set up (after .14 when it was considered "stable") or even some copies of customized ones with lots of mods.

I just did some research on what it would take to migrate to another cart, and you are right balinor. It would be more expensive (in time too) to swap out. I don't quite trust carts that don't have something to profit from. Capitalism goes a long way in making sure there are no bugs before a release.


Waiting to hear what I will need to do to stay a viable store. Maybe upgrading to version 4.1 will give me added benefits too?

To be fair John, there is no way X-Cart could have anticipated what would be required for PHP/MySQL 5 when they first released 4.0, so I wouldn't call it a 'bug'. I do, however, agree that they should have taken the time to release a patch once they realized this would be an issue.

Upgrading to 4.1 does have quite a number of benefits, but you need to weigh those against the cost of doing it. If there aren't specific features you need, it may not be worth the headache and expense.

4.1 definitely has added benefits, in terms of security, new modules, speed, etc, plus shortening your future upgrade curve.

regarding carts that don't have something to profit, that's a valid business model nowadays actually, as people have found that it's often better to reel someone in with a free product, and make money off of services. in X-Cart's case, they reel people in with a fairly inexpensive product, and make money off of it not being a 100% comprehensive solution



btw, Padraic is correct about headache/expense. 4.0 to 4.1 doesn't have a template/file upgrade, just a db upgrade, so essentially you have to start from scratch with a 4.1 install, and re-implement any customizations

I really haven't customized my site at all beyond tweaking the template a bit. I have zero added features beyond what X-Cart supplied me with. Check out the site in my link, pretty basic.


I wan't calling the php upgrade a bug, I was referencing some other cart's that have known issues of security with the download.
