where is my database held to access it via ftp?

where's the timoeut for php held. mine's at 20 seconds at the mo'

where do you change the word top to home on your top menu bar?

 

can anyone help with easy populate.

i can't download my complete text file, i can download the other three options but not the complete. it says timed out line 45, 40, 155 etc.

i've tried downloading to temp file and it's the same story.

does my host stink or is there another way

 

as per the instructions i can't understand this:

If you encounter errors here trying to dl the file,

try using the "Create txt in temp dir" link. This

will create a file in the /catalog/temp directory,

which you can get to via the Tools/Files in the

admin area, and download it there.

 

.... and i don't know where the database is held on ftp.

when i use backup database i get a sql file which requires too much work to edit.

any help please?

tim

p.s. how do you delete things from the database so they correspondingly delete categories etc from the site?

slow down. One thread for one question. It's less confusing that way.

 

Most of the questions can probably be answered simlar to this one:

how do you delete things from the database so they correspondingly delete categories etc from the site?

 

You really should edit your products/categories via the admin tool, not directly from the database. Unless you really know what you're doing, don't edit the database directly to add/edit/delete products.

you should not be accessing your database via ftp except to download to your local system.  phpmyadmin (usually on host server) is what is used to change the tables and should only be done when adding contributions, if necessary

 

where's the timoeut for php held. mine's at 20 seconds at the mo'

 

timeout is in the php.ini which you wlll need to discuss with your host

 

where do you change the word top to home on your top menu bar?

 

pretty much all language files are where you will change the definitions.  try english.php first.

 

can anyone help with easy populate.

 

i have asked you before to post any questions related to easy populate in the easy populate support thread
