eCart 6 - compatibility with earlier ASP/VBScript eCarts?

eCart 6 - compatibility with earlier ASP/VBScript eCarts?

We are about to take the plunge with PHP and MySQL after years of ASP/VBScript and MSSQL but I'm concerned that if we upgrade to eCart 6 our previous carts will start experiencing problems.

Will upgrading to eCart 6 cause any problems with previous ASP/VBScript versions of eCart? Can we still develop in ASP/VBScript with eCart 6?

Thank you.

eCart 6 is not compatible with ASP, only with PHP

you will not be able to edit ASP carts using eCart 6.

previous carts

What will happen with our older ASP/VBScript carts then, once we upgrade to eCart 6?

you will need to either have an older version of dreamweaver with the previous version of eCart in order to manage those sites, or create a new computer user and install the older eCart under that user to manager the older sites.

messy

That's not an ideal solution. I didn't realise that upgrading was going to make our previous shopping basket applications un-editable and, potentially, inoperable.

Our only option, therefore, would be to either maintain two computers or, like you say, create a new computer user with the old Dreamweaver and old eCart installed on it. Will Windows 81 Pro allow us to do that without becoming muddled with the two versions of Dreamweaver? We were hoping to sign up for Adobe CC once our Win 8.1 Pro machine arrived.

Appreciate the advice, as ever. Thank you.

There shouldn't be a problem setting up 2 users in windows 8.1

Dreamweaver

It's Dreamweaver that I'd be more worried about to be honest. Conflicts etc. Do you think that should be ok?

I took your advice on an i7, SSD and HD and plenty of RAM along with Win 8.1 Pro. Arrives this week.
I assume I need to turn ASP on in the IIS settings in order to locally test my ASP sites, right?

Thanks Jason.

there should not be a problem.


yes, you will need to enable IIS and Classic ASP in order to test asp pages locally.

PHP?

Can I test PHP and/or MySQL locally using Win 8.1 Pro?

since you also want to run ASP, you will need to install PHP and MySQL into IIS, here are a couple tutorial I found through google:
