If your Photo Cart is suddenly getting a 500 error or only displaying a blank page then you or your hosting company has updated the PHP (programming language) to PHP 7 which Photo Cart is not compatible with (and will not be compatible with) mainly because of the removal of the my_sql functions which are replaced with my_sqli functions. 

You would need to have the PHP version downgraded to 5.6 in order for Photo Cart to work. If downgrading the PHP doesn't work then you may have to update Photo Cart to the last version of 7. Download Photo Cart 7 upgrade files. Upgrade instructions.

Photo Cart was retired in 2015. Check out Sytist.

1) Connect to your website with your FTP program and go into the public folder.

2) Right click on your current Photo Cart folder and select rename. Rename it.

3) Download the setup.php file from inside the Photo Cart folder and open it in a text editor like notepad.

4) Look for the line $setup['photo_cart_folder'] = "photocart";
(photocart might be something else);

5) change "photocart" to the new name of the folder. Save and re-upload.
