How to Install Modules

From Phoenix User Guide
Back
Setup Shop


CE Phoenix Cart has all the modules you need to operate a shop already installed by default.

Depending on your business model and requirements there may be some you wish to disable and many others are included that can be installed and enabled if required.

This is a list of those which users may want to install or disable.

Tip: If you don't want to show a module, you can either disable (hide) it or remove (uninstall) it.

When playing with the design, it's a good option to disable it, as it saves the settings it has been given, meaning it will be exactly the same as it was if you choose to enable it again later.

However, this also means that it is loaded completely with every page, which in extreme circumstances might slow down your website

If you are sure you don't want to use a module, it is better to remove it than to hide it.
