Upgrading Minor Releases

Upgrading Minor Releases

As you already know that a minor release never contains breaking changes. You can upgrade without worries. Please read the changelog for detail about the changes, this will help you to decide if you really need to upgrade or not.


HELP! If you are not sure which version of zCart is running currently on your marketplace, you can find it here.


To upgrade minor releases please follow these steps:

Step 1: Download the files from CodeCanyon and extract on your local computer.

Step 2: Set your marketplace in maintenance mode, so that visitor doesn’t get any errors or see sensitive system information.

Step 3: Take a backup all of your files, so that you can get back to the previous version if having issues with the new one.

Step 4: Replace only these directories and files [Dont touch other files/directories] with the newly downloaded version:


  1. app
  2. bootstrap
  3. config
  4. public/* (Replace all except the storage and themes directory)
  5. public/themes (Only if you use the default theme without any modification)
  6. resources
  7. routes
  8. vendor


  1. composer.json
  2. composer.lock
  3. package.json

Step 5: Check the files and directory permissions. Here is the list of required permissions.

Step 6: Skip this step if you don’t have any plugins.

Warning! Check the plugin’s version compatibility with zCart and replace plugin code if needed.

Then run this command on your project root.

composer dumpautoload

Step 7: Now please check the changes from the admin dashboard if the script works as it should be.

Step 8: Now turn off the maintenance mode and you’re done.


HELP! If you got any issues please contact zCart support team with detail explanations and screenshots of the issues. The support team can help you fast it you provide every detail of the problem.
