Copy site and DB on same server?


Recommended Posts

I need to copy a shop to another domain on the same server. I want to keep the existing shop so I can't just rename the whole thing.


Now, I know how to export my DB through phpmyadmin, but I got so many customers, order history, products etc. that I am getting time outs when I try to import it to the new database.


Are there any way I can do this through telnet. Maybe both for the DB and the files?

if they are both on the same server then copy the directory to another directory name of your choice on the same level.

create a mysql database.

with mysql you can do a 'dump' of the database then import it very easily.

make the changes to your configure.php and you are up.

is this a local server or one on the net?
