This page attempts to explain the organization the Zen Cart™ application directory.

Within a Zen Cart™ installation, you will find the following directories:

admin

contains many php files used to operate the back-end administration web interface to your store

cache

contains cache files. Shouldn't need to mess around here.

docs

Some basic documentation in html format.

download

contains files to be served to customers when selling downloadable products

editors

contains available rich-text editors used by the admin interface

email

several html files, which are templates for HTML emails.

extras

this contains developer-use stuff the user need not concern themself with: permissions, curl testing and such.

images

contains product/category/attribute images, basically all images not specifically associated with a particular template

includes

contains PHP files used to operate the core of your store

media

contains files used as media clips added to music products: normally short sample MP3 files

pub

this folder is used for serving downloadable product files via redirection, so that customers don't actually get to see the real storage location of the original file, thus helping prevent theft of downloadable products
