    Default Cant install Install in demo folder (page not found)

    I am trying to upgrade from 1.3.9h and am following the guide found at http://www.zen-cart.com/content.php?...-zen-cart-site

    I have uploaded the files to /demo as it suggests but when I open the demo folder or /demo/zc_install i just get my page not found.
    Can anyone shed any light?
    Thanks,
    John

    It looks like you have the new installation inside your current Zencart installation somehow. It should have been installed in (assuming you have the standard file nomenclature) public_html/demo.

    Thing is, when I add /demo to your URL, I'm seeing the Zencart generated 404 page. If I add /demo to one of my test sites (stevesh.com/demo/demo) I get the standard (non-Zencart) 404. Maybe you have some sort of redirect set up, or your URL rewriter is messing things up ? Try turning that off temporarily.

    Ok, I open /demo/zc_install/index.php in my web browser and got the following page:

    Unfortunately we've discovered a problem:

    "The PHP version you are using (5.2.6-1+lenny16) is too old, and this version of Zen CartŪ cannot be used. You need to upgrade your server to the latest version of PHP.

    This version of Zen CartŪ requires an absolute minimum of PHP version 5.2.14
    It is recommended to use the latest version of PHP 5.3.xx.

    NOTE: At the time of this release, PHP 5.4 has not yet been extensively tested with this version of Zen CartŪ. Check the www.zen-cart.com website for the latest version if your server is running PHP 5.4 or newer."

    Just another reason why I think the posting tips should be required

    Until you or your host update the php, the install will continue to fail.
    Did you read the posting tips?!?

    I think it might be that lenny16 guy's fault.

    I guessed that. Maybe i should have mentioned in the post that i had also enquired about upgrading the php with the host.

    Stevesh, thanks for your helpful comments, I may have the host 404 pointing to zencart and maybe that's why it wasn't giving me the error message by simply typing in /demo as it instructs in the guide. Hopefully solved....
