How To Install

Assisted Installation

LiteCart can be installed for you using Softaculous.

Manual Installation

This tutorial describes how to install LiteCart on a conventional Linux web host.

What you need:

  • An Apache2 web server running PHP 7.0 or higher
  • A Zip-archive of LiteCart downloaded from
  • An FTP account
  • A MySQL 5.5+ account

(Nginx users look here)

Please note: Windows machines are supported. But Windows has many limitations that can be a problem down the road.

If you don't have a web host and want to try LiteCart on your local machine, check out AMPPS. Using AMPPS, you can install LiteCart with one click via Softaculous apps library that comes preinstalled in AMPPS.


1. Connect to your web host via FTP using your favorite FTP software.

2. Open the downloaded ZIP-archive and upload the contents of the folder public_html/ to the corresponding path on your FTP site (usually a folder named /home/myusername/public_html/ or /home/myusername/www/). Talk to your web host if you are uncertain.

3. Point your web browser to the URL of your website followed by a subfolder install/ e.g. If you installed LiteCart in a subfolder, the path could look like The installation page should now load.

4. Pay attention to the information on the page and make sure everything seems to be in order. Fill in your details for database, region and more. Click the Install button when you're ready.

If everything went well, LiteCart should now be successfully installed.
