PLEASE NOTE: If you have not worked with X-Cart before, and have proven experience in this field, DO NOT APPLY for this role.
We have a customised X-cart 4.2.0 installation. It has extra features added to the files that perform product lookup, login, displaying prices and discounts.
These changes MUST NOT BE REMOVED.
The web host needs to upgrade the server to PHP 5.4 (currently 5.0) urgently, and MySQL 5.6.
For this, we need to do two things:
1) Patch the 4.2.0 installation to PHP5.4 compatible - as detailed here: [url removed, login to view]
2) Then upgrade to the latest compatible full version - 4.2.3
Note: This is NOT a standard upgrade project. We are also not asking the freelancer to perform the PHP or MySQL upgrade - we ONLY want the person to upgrade the x-cart installation to a PHP5.4 compatible version. I need somebody who will take the DIFFERENCES and apply them to our old version, one by one.
ALL customisations previously made to 4.2.0 must remain after 4.2.3 upgrade, as this is key functionality. If the site does not work exactly the same way when complete as it did under 4.2.0, the project has not been completed.
This needs someone with *good* X-Cart experience.
Upgrade files and access to the site will be given to the successful bidder.
