    Hi @qazzi

    First, welcome to the GoDaddy Community Man Happy Thanks for participating!

    As for your issue, if you're hosted on cPanel, try updating your PHP version settings to include Zip (see screen shots). That my be what the app is looking for. 








    What other apps does the Community use for eCommerce? Some suggestions would be great!

    Re: Error when installing AbanteCart

    I am on a Virtual Server what if my C panel dashboard does not list Select PHP Version  under software?

    I need to update my WPL software and I don't want to overwrite anything; I get

    "Error: #U205, PHP ZipArchive support is not enabled!"  But I can't for the life of me find where to turn it on. PLEASE HELP


    The only related Icons I have on my C panalare two:  It has PHP and PHP Pear packages but in  'PHP' icon  it says 'These PHP configuration settings are customizable by the server administrator. They are listed for reference only.'

     And PHP PEAR says: 

    “PHP Extensions and Applications Package” Installer

    PEAR packages are collections of functions that allow you to perform tasks in PHP. You will need to install a PEAR package before you can use it inside a PHP program. Note: Packages are installed directly from the PHP Extensions and Applications repository (PEAR).

    Checking Setup

    Updating channel "pear.php.net"
    Channel "pear.php.net" is up to date

    Re: Error when installing AbanteCart

    BAM! Just like that it's solved.   Really, you guys should consider sticking that in the instructions for Presta and Magneto.    I don't mind learning new things for fun.  But cruising around trying to  get a storefront up is a bit annoying.


    That said, I hope people buy you the libation of your choice!  This alleviated a lot of stress.

    I wish this version was still available, unfortunately now  (November 2017) the multi-php editor no longer allows you to do anything other than apply a particular php version. None of the other options show up
