The e-commerce.

newb (oscommerce.bak...what is it)


Recommended Posts

I have just started to use osCommerce to develope a site. I installed everything in my directory and it works fine. I now seem to have two osCommerce folders with different extensions. Both folders are in the same directory and one looks redundant. Can anyone tell me if I need the main oscommerce folder in addition to another folder named oscomerce.bak?


I have no clue what the oscommerce.bak folder is or what it is for. I searched the forums and found nothing relevant.

Here's what I do: rename it from oscommerce.bak to was-oscommerce.bak. Then forget about it for a week or two. If something starts to complain, it's easy to find and easy to restore. After some time has passed, if nothing complains (and you have it in a backup somewhere), you know that you can confidently delete it.
