All of ProductCart's files are by default included in a folder called productcart.

  3. Change the name of the productcart folder itself to the new folder name that you have just entered in the productcartfolder.asp file. In the example mentioned above, the file would be edited from
    private const scPcFolder="productcart"
    private const scPcFolder="shop"
