Godaddy Hosting Configuration Change Affects Paypal Payments
I never never never never recommend anyone host a zen cart website on a godaddy.com server. (Other types of websites are fine I am sure - just too many problems with the zen cart program). Today an announcement was made on the zen cart forum that explains that a new upgrade to godaddy's hosting configuration now makes paypal not work on zen cart websites hosted on their servers. The fix for this issue can be found here: http://www.zen-cart.com/forum/showthread.php?p=612520#post612520

Zen Cart SQL Injection Risk
The Zen Cart development team has just posted a bug fix for all current versions of zen cart that have their magic_quote_gpc turned off in their server/site's PHP settings. To check and see if your magic_quote_gpc is turned off, log into your admin, go to Tools then to Server / Version Info and do a search to find magic_quote_gpc which is under PHP CORE. All websites on my dedicated server are fine, because magic_quote_gpc is turned on globally on the server. To find out more about the fix for the bug, please visit the Zen Cart Forum's Announcement Area.

Authorize.net Changes Effective 10/1/08
Authorize.net is making changes effective October 1, 2008 which affect the size of Transaction ID values returned when payments are processed. The Zen Cart Development team has provided a patch for this change via your zencart admin as follows: (please make sure that you change the table name to add the correct prefix such as zen_authorize.net - if you have 'zen' as a prefix on your tables.) ALTER TABLE authorizenet CHANGE COLUMN transaction_id transaction_id varchar(20) NOT NULL default '';

PCI Compliance for Zen Cart Stores
I have had people raise concern about the new PCI Compliance laws as to whether zencart is considered PCI compliant. So... I checked around and had one of the abuse and security analysts from where my dedicated server is hosted and here was his response: Your business is PCI compliant as long as you are not storing Track 1 CC data which consists of the full CC number, name, expiration date. As long as this information is not being stored, you are fine. Using a payment gateway to put in payment information allows you to avoid PCI compliance as this is passed on to the payment gateway.
