Hi all,

First post O0

Really dumb question, I'm sure it's been answered but I have conflicting information on other sites. Can anyone tell me categorically if there is a limit on the amount of products OpenCart can have, and if so what it is?

I have about 19,000 products, do you think OpenCart could cope with this?

if you don't mind to rent a fast, dedicated Server, running on it's own exclusive IP, then,
it will function well......, if:

somebody is capable to implement, what is available on the Web, to speed up DB-Access,
index whatever is possible, incorporate VqMod-Options used, into the Source, remove, whats
really not required, etc., etc., to make the 'OC-thing' work in an upmost optimized way.

A fast and efficient dedicated Server will cost you about 500-1500 US-$ per Year, including an exclusive IP.
the Job to be done easy another 500-2000 Bucks initially, if you are no PHP Pro yourself.
To work 'clean' under https, you'll need a SSL-certificate as well, priced about 50-100 US-Bucks per Year.

That would add up to 10 - 15 US-Cents per Product offered, initially, not a huge sum to get a working business.

You could also try to do it on your own, using a shared Server, and depending
on assistance in this User-Forum. But I would not recommend it, if you are not
familiar with PHP/HTML/SQL-DB/JS-Coding.

It's just to much of a Task..., and you probably don't plan on, investing the coming Months
into learning, how OC functions and what can be done to make it work under 'REAL LOAD'.

Good enough?

Just to complete this, I have installed ~5'000 sample Products in English as well as the same amount in German Language. Therefore, my DB Product Section now probably has the Size of a similar (single-language) DB, containing about 10'000 active Product-Records.

This way, one can see how efficiently a decent (Swiss) quality shared server can do. I use several freely available 'indexing' Mod's, therefore, the Shop was expected to act a bit faster, compared with an 'untouched' standard edition....

but then, when it worked, I was really impressed...!

PS. I still use Product-Counting, I just removed it from the Cat-Selector. In the Top Menu-Line, Numbers are visible.
