I got an error on view/page/admin-home.php on line 104 using version 1.4 (or inferior).

This error is caused because your server has php short tags set to off. Now, there are 4 things you can fix that:

1st WAY

on the .htaccess, add the code php_value short_open_tag 1 on the last line. It will override your php.ini configuration and allow short tags to be used;

2nd WAY

go to your php.ini and turn php short tag On.

3th WAY

Open the file view/page/admin-home.php and scroll to line 103. Replace <? by


Download the update package here and update your installation through the tool “Update Installer” (located on your administrator’s left menu on the bottom). That will fix the problem for you.

If you have any question or problem fixing it don’t hesitate in contacting us!

Got an error on the installer (installer/index.php:1000). What to do?
This issue is caused by the number of bytes an index can hold on the database. Although this doesn’t happen in most servers, it has an easy fix as follows:

Open the file installer/index.php and browse to line 980.
Remove the two lines where says UNIQUE and KEY
Save the file and refresh your browser.

If this doesn’t solve the problem, don’t hesitate in contacting us.

I got an error uploading images. What can I do?

Image errors usually happens when you upload a file which is not supported by the platform (tif, psd, etc) or the destination directory is set to read-only.

The platform works with Internet image formats (PNG, JPG and GIF). Any other format is ignored. Also, trying to upload JPEG files will also trigger the same error.

If your upload directory is set to read-only, make sure to change it to read & write before trying again.

Installer got an error : Warning: fopen(../config.php). How to fix it?

It means that the installer have no permission to write files on the root directory. Make sure the installer has write permission in your server.

I got an 500 error after uploading the files to my server. What can I do?

Each hosting provider manages its servers in a different way regarding how .htaccess files can override default settings. jT CarFramework uses all possible settings to improve security but, in some occasions, the hosting provider does not enable certain modules necessary for the platform to run.

Follow the steps to check if your host has the requirements necessary to run jT CarFramework based on the list below:

  • cURL Mod
  • ModRewrite
  • allow_url_fopen()
  • SimpleXML
  • ZipArchive Module
  • PHP 5.3 or superior
  • Allow .htaccess
  • GDLib Module

If your host complies with the requirements above, don’t hesitate in contacting us.

    Sorry for my silly questions, :

    - Why this web platform is free?
    - Can we link it automatically to a Dealer management system?
    - Where our Data’s and website will be hosted??

    Thanks & best regards
    Hello Cherif,
    answering your questions in the order you’ve asked:
    A. The platform is distributed in 2 different license types depending on the version you choose. The 1.5.2 and 1.6.x are free open-source software which you can download through our download section without any cost or obligation. The second (v. 2 series) is a commercial software which must be purchased through our shop.
    A. The 1 Series is open-source therefore, such “link” can be built without problems. The 2 Series comes with ADF integration which allows the platform to notify the DMS automatically.The live there can be found here http://demo.intersofts.com/ and the commercial documentation here http://intersofts.com/booklet.pdf.
    A. You may host the platform wherever you want. There are no obligations regarding hosting. If you prefer, we can manage the hosting for you through BlueHost services.

    Don’t hesitate in contacting us for any further questions you might have. Kind regards!

    wich web hosting company you recommend for this plataform?

    1. J. Taniguchi

      Hello Oscar, we recommend bluehost.com for shared server. The reason is, we find bluehost Apache configuration more “friendly” to developers than servers such as iPage or Godaddy. For example, ModRewrite is enable by default and requires no extra efforts.
      If you have a dedicated server, we recommend a Linux system.
      Kind regards.

    how about the SEO, google indexing etc in this plataform ( jT CarFramework 2 )
    it is friendly? automatic?

    1. J. Taniguchi

      Hello Oscar,
      applicable SEO features has been applied (such as mobile version, alt tags, etc) but, SEO depends mostly on the quality of text, quantity of pages, blog entries and, many other factors which cannot be automate.
