module "price by country" that gives possibility to increase / decrease prices by country has an override of "ProductController".
The message you mentioned means that your shop already uses a module that installed override of "ProductController" with its "initContent" class.
Module "price by country" also uses the same override, so this is why prestashop can't install another module that tries to install override that already exists.
This is not a bug of the "price by country" module nor the bug of "stoverride" addon you already have in your shop. This is the way of how prestashop works currently.

there are at least two solutions depending on your requirements.

  1. You do not want to use "stoverride" addon
    if you do not want to use this plugin it is enough to just uninstall it.
    Then you will be able to install "price by country" without any problem.
    Please note that once you will install "price by country" and if in the future you will want to install "stoverride" - you will not have possibility to install it becuase of the same problem.
  2. You want to use both modules
    In this case it will be necessary to manually merge two overrides from: "stoverride" and "price by country"
    • /overrides/controllers/front/ProductController.php
    • /modules/pbc/overrides/controllers/front/ProductController.php

Steps to follow:

  1. merge two files into one and move merged file to /overrides/controllers/front/ProductController.php
  2. remove file /modules/pbc/overrides/controllers/front/ProductController.php
  3. install "price by country" module in shop back office

so, it requires some php knowledge to merge two php files into one.
if you are not tech-savvy i offer my full support, i can do it directly in your shop if you are interested in this kind of support.



please do not provide any access credentials here.

if you expect to get direct support please send private message or create support ticket.
