Attention

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.

I have my installation in a subdirectory. Because of changes I am making on my website, I wish to display the gallery in my root directory. Is there a way to do so without moving the installation?

See "Moving a Sytist installation from a sub folder into the root" on this page:

Thank you. I was referring to Photocart. The reply seems to be regarding another program. Is it possible to have an installation of Photocart which is in a sub directory display as if it is in the root?

You will need to move all the files inside your Photo Cart folder up a level in your FTP program similar to the example in the link above.

After that , edit the setup.php file which is inside that Photo Cart folder and remove the line $setup['photo_cart_folder']

OK, so you are saying that I have to move it, I cannot keep it in it's own folder. Thank you.

If you want to display it in the root, then you will need to move the files into the root.

If you want to re-direct your home page you can create an index.php file with a text editor like notepad and add this code:

<?php
header("location: /photocart/");
exit();
?>

And upload it to the root of your website.

And it will redirect the main page to your Photo Cart folder. If there is an index.html file in your root, you will need to delete or rename it.

Or you can ask your host to redirect your home page to your Photo Cart folder or have them point your domain to the Photo Cart folder.
