eCart 5 beta question

eCart 5 beta question

Given that eCart 5 will only support PHP... will it be able to coexist with eCart 4? Basically can both versions be installed and functional at the same time?

I ask this because I will continue to use eCart 4 for ASP sites and move all PHP sites to eCart 5 and would hate to have to install / uninstall eCart 4 /5 depending on which I needed to use.

I believe that the eCart 5 configuration files will overwrite past eCart files when you install, thus they wouldn't be able to co-exist. Ray will be back in the office tomorrow and can correct me if I am mistaken.

Dave, Ray confirmed that the statement in my last post is correct. He did mention that you can rename your current config folder to Configuration_ASP (or whatever you want), install eCart 5 and other extensions you want to run to get a new set of config files. Then whenever you want to run eCart 4, rename the new config folder to Configuration_PHP (or whatever you want) and rename Configuration_ASP to Configuration.

I think you probably know extension architecture well enough to know what I am talking about with that brief description, but if that is unclear, I can give exact steps.

It would mainly be a pain to install the extensions a 2nd time - or keep up with dot releases in both places, but once you are installed, just renaming the 2 config folders and re-starting Dreamweaver isn't that big of a deal.

Sorry I don't have an easier method to recommend at this time.

Thanks for the follow up on this. I agree that it shouldn't be that difficult to manage doing it via the rename process.

Another alternative to renaming the configuration folder would be to create a new computer user.

You would have the most recent extensions installed under your main computer user. when you need to use the older ones, log out of the main user account and loginto the secondary user account where you have the older extensions installed.
