How to update script?

Usual guide is: extract all files except ”/files” folder and ”/application/config” folder and update database by running updater script: index.php/updater

Detailed steps:

1. Download new version on codecanyon

2. in this downloaded zip file remove folders ”/files” and ”/application/config”

Example how to do that with 7zip archiver program:



Upload this file and extract on cpanel where script is installed

Upload via FTP is not suggested because sometimes files are skipped.

If you skipped some updates then check this old guide:

We can also provide updating services for additional cost, you can request via support ticket.

Suggested PHP config

Regarding hosting providers, all our codes are tested on:


99.99% our clients use cpanel, this is best and most easier way to go

Everything else like custom servers just causing unpredictable unnecessary trouble for us and our clients, is very hard to support such clients.

Example php modules from our demo hosting:


from php.ini this parameters are important:

* upload_max_filesize = 128M
* post_max_size = 128M
* max_execution_time = 5000
* max_input_time = 2000
* memory_limit = 512M
* max_input_nesting_level = 128
* max_input_vars = 10000
* output_buffering = 4096

Google Maps Platfom images-01

IMPORTANT: Google Maps Changes!

Short info for you if you wish to use google maps:

In admin->settings->system settings (If you using WordPress then Admin->Listings->Settings) you need to enter your google maps api key and enable billing on Google Maps. If you will not do that then google maps and will stop working on June 11th and your website may become unusable (UPDATE: Google started with billing on 18.07.2018).

Now google created nice page to generate your owm maps api key:

Old guide how to enter and get your own api key:

For now Google will provide free 200 USD/months what should be enough for all our clients.

EDIT: on 1. August 2019 I received invoice 55 USD so noticed that no more free 200 USD per month, is actually limited to 300 USD for first year and will be probably removed in future

you need to enable this libraries for all features:


Short info for you if you want to use completely free (for now) openstreetmaps:

We working on implementation, in new script versions you will be able to find: admin->settings->system settings->Open street map checkbox like on screen:


Or in WordPress themes/plugins in Admin->Listings->Settings

Other details:

Today May 2, Google release troublesome news about Google Maps, please read this complete news because your website may stop working.

Beginning June 11th, Google launching new pricing plan what will impact all clients and cause google maps not working issue!



What this means for us?

Until now we providing our api key by default on installation, but because many of website now using our api key we are not able to pay this by new google pricing so api key related will be disabled by google and you will need to enter your own api key.

We plan to implement alternative free maps support, still deciding about solution, probably will be openstreetmaps or similar. Problem is that we don’t have enough time to implement this on all our script and themes so your own api key is only solution for now.
