Migrating OS Commerce Between Servers


Recommended Posts


Is there any documentation on how to migrate a OSC from one server to another?




probably, but it's fairly easy. Here's a quick howto, specially for you!! ;)


Don't delete anything from your original site until the other one is running smoothly!


Make a backup of your database. Use PHPmyAdmin or something else.


copy the entire directory over to the new server. If you've deleted the "install" directory from your original site, copy it from your original archive to the new server (this makes sure it's the same version as the rest of your site) and run the install script, following all the instructions, and making sure all the permissions are set OK.


now overwrite the database on the new server with the old one.


The only snag can be if you have custom code in includes/configure.php - just make sure you copy that code over by hand after running the above process.


go to your site, and all should be running smoothly.
