Zen Cart 1.5.0 Official Release
Release of Zen Cart 1.5.0 At the end of July of this year, the Zen Cart developers released a beta version of 1.5.0. Since that time the community has been installing and testing it to work out any bugs in the beta. Today, the official version was released that is safe to use on a live store. One of the main reasons for this 1.5.0 release is in becoming PA DSS certified. PA DSS (Payment Application Data Security Standards) certification is important in the area of PCI compliance when accepting credit cards online as well as in passing stringent testing for security holes so that hackers...

Changing Your Admin Folder Name
One of the many improvements in zen cart version 1.3.9 is that it will prompt you to change the name of your admin folder to something different once you have completed your installation - IF you are doing a manual install. In fact, the program will not even allow you to log into your admin area without first renaming the admin folder and also removing the zc_install folder. This is an added benefit to help your site be more secure, because hackers KNOW that the "out of the box" name for the admin folder is /admin. If you are using an automated installation program supplied with your hosting...
