Zen Cart® v1.5.3 is compatible with PHP 5.2.10 through PHP 5.6, and MySQL 5.1 thru 5.6
(Note: security features are stronger when using PHP 5.3.7 or newer.)
Note: we mention both 1.5.2 and 1.5.3 here, because 1.5.2 was only released as a beta.
The incorporation of bcrypt for password security necessitated a version-number increase, hence the jump to 1.5.3.
This document only mentions the actual changes specific to 1.5.3. If you want to see the long list of 1.5.2-specific improvements, see the whatsnew_1.5.2.html file.
Simple: if you are using v1.5.1 already and have not customized any of the files listed in the changed_files-v1-5-2.html and changed_files-v1-5-3.html documents, then simply replace those files with the new versions contained as listed in those documents.
If you HAVE customized or altered certain files, simply re-do your customizations in the new version of those particular files by making the same changes needed.
If you are using Addons/Plugins that have made alterations to those files, it is best to compare those changed files against the original v1.5.1 files, and see what changes were there ... and then re-build those changes in the v1.5.3 file.
If you are upgrading from a version OLDER than v1.5.1, then please do a standard complete site upgrade.
For a list of files that have been changed since v1.5.1, see the changed_files-v1-5-2.html and changed_files-v1-5-3.html documents
