Yes, take a backup of the database. Do not use the osCommerce backup facility - if the server you are on crashes and things get messed up then so will your backup.


You can either FTP to your site, locate the mysql folder and download a copy of the database in there.


Or you may have a Whole Site Backup and Restore facility in your web hosting control panel. This will restore the whole website, including the database, but I still prefer to take a seperate backup of the database - it has been known for the database not to restore on a Whole Site Backup.
