Administration - Organization
This page attempts to explain the organization the Zen Cart™ application directory.
Within a Zen Cart™ installation, you will find the following directories:
contains many php files used to operate the back-end administration web interface to your store
contains cache files. Shouldn't need to mess around here.
Some basic documentation in html format.
contains files to be served to customers when selling downloadable products
contains available rich-text editors used by the admin interface
several html files, which are templates for HTML emails.
this contains developer-use stuff the user need not concern themself with: permissions, curl testing and such.
contains product/category/attribute images, basically all images not specifically associated with a particular template
contains PHP files used to operate the core of your store
contains files used as media clips added to music products: normally short sample MP3 files
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
