My shared hosting which has 8 websites one (7 wordpress, 1 opencart) has been infected with some malware.
The wordpress are relatively easy to restore, just change 1 config file and red-wnload all plugins, themes, core files and all the uploads.

The wordpress site points to the database which contains all the key files.

I would like to know how I can do the same for opencart. I have the database on the server. I have redownloaded the opencart script, but which directories do I need to recover from the malware infected files and put into the new install?

Well, if you have downloaded the Server Shop Software, just compare
it's content with a clean local Copy, by use of a synchronizer/file-compare
Tool, then you will find out. But better don't expect one around here, to have
esotheric capabilities, in order to look into your Code from far away, just to
save from from spending many hours.

It would probably be cheaper, at least timewise, to clean out your Server ShopSub,
and upload a clean full OC Copy again.
Good Luck! ;)
