This is a great idea, and a brave undertaking, qahar. :)
Can I add one for newbies ..
Install Opencart: 4-step guide (Cpanel users) ... not much, proud of it anyway, lol

Another useful one for newbies:
Backup and Restore using phpMyAdmin

PS your search tip is very neat - I never thought to add the date to the search terms.

Bravo,

Many thanks. Just what I needed to get started with OpenCart versus other MVC-whatever-little functions-you-add-to-make-it-different php frameworks. Excellent work that compliments an excellent shopping cart!

Cheers,

Paul
