X-Cart released a new version. Who does my upgrade?

X-Cart releases new versions of their software on a semi-regular basis. It is strongly advised to install the latest version of ANY software as it will help cut down security leaks or breaches on your site.

The X-Cart software can be upgraded most times by unpacking the new version files over your existing files. Please be sure you have made a backup of your site before attempting an upgrade to your site.

Hands-on Web Hosting does not perform the upgrades for customers. There are 4 places that we recommend contacting to have an upgrade run on your software if you didn't want to perform the upgrade yourself;
