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.

Do I have to switch to the new Sytist, or can I continue using PhotoCart? Also, this morning my Dave's Uploader is saying that my License Key is invalid. I've been using PhotoCart with Dave's Uploader for many years. The Dave's Uploader website won't work for me to email them.

You can still use Photo Cart

I don't know much about Dave's Uploader, but I know he has stopped support for it. Looks like you can download the Freeloader (which uploads photos to Photo Cart) from his website here:

You can also upload photos with a FTP program. Uploading with FTP information in the manual here:

I downloaded the Free Loader and it's all back up and running. Thank you for the response!
