By looking at the showcat.php code, I could see perpage uses thumcols, so I changed "Number of columns for thumbnail pages" in Show Categories admin settings from 4 to 8, and now we have 24 as a default Per Page value.
I'd still like to know how to change that sort without having to reinstall or re-upgrade.

So is there a way to do it without having to run install.php or upgrade.php?
Also, how about the default number of products per page in showcat? I didn't see an option in admin to change it from 12.
