  1. Some are more dangerous than others in that list and all have some legitimate use. Much depends on whether the server is dedicated or shared with multiple users and how good the rest of the server security is
  2. There is no CubeCart function or third party module that use these functions - they should all be disabled as they are a MAJOR security risk
  3. @hairydog take a look at the @Noodleman plugin https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/plugins/absolute-matrix-option-prices-price-list-hide-out-of-stock-matrix-options You can install and try a full version for seven days
  4. David As Brian said, you need to think about the upgrade in a different way. Don’t look to document the changes between 6.1.5 and 6.2.8 but instead document the changes between your site and a stock 6.1.5 However altered your site is, the former will produce far more changes and it will be a much more difficult job to back port these to your current site. Maybe the time to consider putting all your changes into one or more plugins so you don’t have this issue going forward Ian
  5. No, it is more sophisticated than those - the documentation is extensive and their online chat help is also fantastic
  6. That doesnt "solve" the problem just avoids the error message
  7. Use Stripe across multiple websites all under a single account - support extremely helpful and quick and definitely not via IRC
  8. Stripe are very good and the CubeCart plugin seems to work well as well Ian
  9. Assume you mean 6.2.8 - CubeCart 6.8 doesnt exist ! If you ONLY uploaded the setup directory, then that is not the way to do upgrades The images are showing that a key requirement is missing from your hosting environment - you will need to get this sorted Ian
  10. Or you could simply use the Enhanced Admin Order Entry plugin which adds that and a whole load more extra functionality https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/plugins/enhanced-admin-order-entry As the functionality is available via this plugin and there is a VERY long list of requested enhancements that aren’t available, that would hopefully be worked on first, that would be your best bet Ian
  11. This means that either you don’t have ionCube installed (you can check in the CubeCart PHP Info section) or the version of the module you installed from the marketplace doesn’t match the php version you have installed - you will notice that there are three different versions of that (or any ioncube encoded module) available and you must choose the correct matching one Ian
  12. There will always be hundreds of PHP Notices about undefined indexes as CubeCart is not written to declare variables before use - these can safely be ignored. There should obviously never be fatal errors and ideally no Warnings either but there always seems to be a few of these kicking around. The CSRF error is almost always due to the admin directory and the admin.php file being from different versions and havent come across any case caused by anything different
  13. Thank you @Dirty Butter and very happy to help out with the hosting - try to offer free or very cheap Hosting where we can for charities or non profits and especially happy to help out for good clients ! Happy Christmas and New Year to you and your family and also to everyone else on these forums Ian
  14. @Dirty Butter drop us a support ticket via your account - we offer cheap (and in many cases free) "Standard" hosting plans for charities and non-profits which is perfect for small WordPress websites and as you are already a hosting customer, would be happy to offer that for free for you - see https://www.havenswift-hosting.co.uk/website-hosting/charity-non-profit-hosting/
  15. Yep quite probably ! Tactics employed by hosting companies that offer cheap hosting plans ! Nothing comes for free and the myth of "unlimited" hosting (for bandwidth or disk space which even then are governed by fair usage policies) is then protected by other more hidden limits like this
  16. I believe it is a hard limit as are the other account based limits that can be imposed by Cloudlinux - have never and will never use it
  17. The number of inodes is fixed at the time the partition is created but if you run a system such as Cloudlinux (which many hosting companies do and impose limits on all sorts of parameters such as memory usage, CPU usage, number of people connected to the account) then a limit on inodes is certainly possible and one that is often used
  18. That is certainly a larger number of records than most but as Brian said, tables with millions of records should not ever be an issue if the tables are indexed correctly - with unique indexes and correctly written queries, finding one record from a thousand records would only be marginally quicker than find the same one from ten million records
  19. This problem has been reported by various people on certain hosting environments and I dont think a reason has been found - I havent spent any time looking into it as it doesnt happen on any of our servers so dont have direct access (nor to be honest the time or inclination to investigate what is probably a hosting mis-configuration). Even on servers / accounts that use the standard file based caching, we dont get this but then almost all accounts across all our servers use either memcached or Redis for memory based caching which is MUCH faster and obviously doesnt suffer from inode limits (this is a trick many hosting company when they say "unlimited" space - which is rarely true anyway as always subject to "fair usage policies" - but then put a limit on the number of inodes available)
  20. That wasn’t my point ! You are setting up continents as zones where most people would never do that and would have three or four different shipping zones for Europe. Your “obvious” way of doing things would almost never be used by anyone else The extension marketplace clearly shows CubeCart as the developer although I do agree that showing “Estelles Winterflood” as the developer under the “Manage Extensions” option in admin could be confusing @Al Brookbanks could easily change that In YOUR limited experience maybe ! There is a place for each of the shipping modules that exist and people will be using them - really do not understand your negativity over these being available - you are not forced to use or even install them
  21. There is no way within CubeCart admin - simply use FTP or your hosting control panel will have a File Manager option Ian
  22. You covered the reason why it isnt part of core - all plugins were removed to separately installable items to make the install lighter weight and not cluttered with hundreds of unwanted and mostly unused plugins - there are also good security reasons for doing this. While the All in One plugin is used by a great many stores, it isnt used by all and a significant number can trade very well without it - therefore it should be outside of core. I agree although search is always an issue in all applications - it has been improved a bit recently but also the "Suggestive Search" plugin really helps with this as well. Foundation was never designed to actually be used - it was always meant to be a starting point for the development of other skins Agreed, the extension marketplace is relatively small but that is because most store owners are not willing to pay anything - the cost of developing, supporting and maintaining any plugin is high and I would guess that most of the 3rd party plugins dont make enough to cover the original and on-going costs It certainly is and the built in functionality is far better than most of the other "more successful" products out there most of which are clunky at best and at worst are massively heavy on server resources and extremely difficult to maintain or upgrade and often have more security issues per quarter than CubeCart has had in years. The lack of choice of quality themes / skins is probably CubeCart's main failing but again, the cost of creating and maintaining skins is huge - I have two commercial skins and have spent far, far more hours on them than I will ever get back in revenue, as people baulk at spending a few tens of pounds. You are right though that while there may be loads for many other applications, the quality is often extremely poor. It is not a five or ten hour job to develop a skin and when you factor in support plus maintenance, it is a lot of effort
  23. It was a very localised issue with session handling and all fixed. I removed some of the content from your post Claudia as best not to display some of what was there Ian
  24. Sound like they have a proxy installed which isnt configured correctly and isnt passing the originating IP address through correctly - as @bsmither says, check other customers registering on your site to see if any IP addresses are recorded correctly
  25. Or are you talking about the verification code that is needed to verify the property within Webmaster Console - if so the best way to do it is via a DNS TXT record added to you domain DNS zone but you can also do it by uploading a small .html file provided by Google - best to avoid adding the verification code to your store skin as it can get overwritten Ian
