How to Download & Install OpenCart 2.0

Installing a new version of OpenCart can be complicated, but we have ensured that users can quickly and easily enjoy the great benefits of OpenCart 2.0 by making the installation process as simple as possible. The following step-by-step guide will walk you through downloading and installing the very latest version of OpenCart.

Step 1 – Download
To download OpenCart 2.0, simply head to to the specialist download page on the OpenCart website and click the download link for version 2.0. When prompted, save the zip file to your computer.
Step 2 – Unzip
Once the zip file has been saved on your computer, unzip the file using your favourite unzipping programme. If you don’t already have a programme to unzip the file with, you may want to consider using ‘7-Zip’ – a completely free unzipping tool.
Step 3 – Upload
Now that you have all of your new OpenCart 2.0 files ready, you can begin to upload them to your server. To do this, you will first need an FTP programme. If you do not already have an FTP programme then FileZilla (client) is a very popular choice and is used by many OpenCart users.
Step 4 – Database
You can create a database in your hosting provider’s control panel, for example cPanel. It may also be possible to do so in phpMyAdmin. Remember to take note of the details that you use as you’ll need them for the next step.
Step 5 – Configs
For the next step, you need to rename the two config files. Using the FTP programme of your choice, rename config-dist.php to config.php and admin/config-dist.php to config.php
Step 6 – Auto-installer
The final step is to run the auto-installer. Open your favourite web browser and add “/install” to the end of your site’s website address.
