don't use the 0.7.8 version of opencart.
Use the latest 0.7.9 version

Is there any way to update to the new version if I am using Open Cart through my host (Bluehost)? They don't give that option. Is there another way around this? I have the same problem.

Nah, hosting companies are very latent on upgrading to new versions. I'd be surprised if they even had 0.7.8 yet. You will need to manually download it and upload to your server via ftp. It's really not hard. No different than copying files from you computer to a usb drive

As I said, It's a bug in 0.7.8. You need to upgrade to the newest version: 0.7.9 Final

do you have an existing store that has products?
Usually if bluehost installed the store in somewhere like
www.example.com/opencart/
then you can goto your FTP and upload the new stuff over the top of the existing. Matching the folders

local : upload/admin
ftp: opencart/admin

Nevermind, I figured it out. I just replace the old files in my FTP with the updated ones, right? I hope so because that's what I did! :)

No I don't have existing product, I just started with this thing.

Scroll through your cPanel to the "Databases" section then click on either, "MySQL Databases" or "MySQL® Database Wizard"

The "MySQL Databases" will list all know databases that have been created and are being used.
Your username should start with something like 'blewhost_' then whatever database name was given to it.

The "MySQL® Database Wizard" will walk you through the steps to setup and create a new and empty database It should allow
you the option to either, create your own password or generate an very strong and secure password. Your choice. Then, once
you have completed the wizard, it will give you all the login information for the user that your set up to access the database.
Make sure you also assign 'ALL PRIVILEGES' to allow the user, that you created, to have full and complete access to the database.

In order to make the installation process easy for end users to a level that they could "Do It Yourself" or DIY, hosting companies have put in the easy installer softwares like simple scripts.
The traditional way was to do it the "manual" way. Thats like go create a database for your desired application and then create and assign a user to that database. Then go ahead and install the software in question (like the wonderful OpenCart) and provide the details (typically database name, database username and database password).
Since this seemed a daunting task for many laymen, stuff like simple scripts came in being and made life easier for them. However as some point of time every1 would need to use the traditional way of installation, if the need arises... hence the explanation here.
I am sure you could always ask people here for help whenever you have to do manual installation and people like Geek and Qphoria would always help, thats what makes it this forum, rite?
With all the help I received I made my estore >> http://www.LSGLive.com O0 [ I just love this smiley and wanted to use it somewhere, lol ] I will write more about my site at the Live store section.
Keep using Open Cart, its a KISS software and the best out there.
