How to install:
Simply unpack both modules and upload the files on the server in the directory where your X-Cart is installed. Then open install-shippingkit-base.php with your browser to run installation wizard for the base files.
After that you should open the file install-ups-tracking.php with your browser and follow the on-screen installation instructions. Please note that for proper script installation you should set the writable permissions to the /skin1/main/history_order.tpl template file. You can do it by running the following command if using shell or an FTP client:
chmod 777 skin1/main/history_order.tpl
If there is a control panel available on your hosting, you certainly can change the permissions there.
Notice, the module is currently available for X-Cart 4.0.x only. However, if you're running another version of X-Cart, contact us and we'll try to find a solution for you.
