So far so good. I webmaster for 2 sites using it and have a few regular hosting clients using it also. It had a few glitches on initial release (v5) but the creators have been fast at getting out updates to squash any lingering bugs.
Install is fairly simple and it works well out of the box and can be used on linux or windows platforms (though IMO runs better/faster on a linux w/ MySQL). What I really love about it is how customizable it is though, how it looks and functions can be completly customized. The latest release has a ton of features built in. I have used a couple of 'open source' carts before, none even come close to ccp5. Its admin panel is about as good as it gets.
Thanks Myros. It does look like a breeze to administer. Do you happen to know if you can separate the secure forms (in SSL) from the main catalog pages without too much trouble.. .i.e., have them in different folders/domains?
Im pretty sure you could run 2 instances of the main cart.cgi in seperate folders, would just be a matter of changing the paths in the config section(s) to reflect the correct paths for the data folders.
But I think running it from 2 different domains would cause some issues as its license is per domain.
The folks at their own forum would probably be able to answer that better though.
