The e-commerce.

installing two instances of osCommerce


Recommended Posts



I would like to install two independent instances of osCommerce on one system. With Apache is everything ok, but how I can use to different databases. Where I have to change the database settings that two database which should be called oscommerce_store1 and oscommerce_store2 work with there shops?


Thanks for the help in advance.

so where is the problem?


create to empty dbs osc1 and osc2 eg with phpmyadmin

create 2 httpdoc directories, osc1 and osc2

copythe catalog into directories osc1 and osc2


start browser with localhost/osc1/catalog/install/ and follow the routine using db osc1


do it again


start browser with localhost/osc2/catalog/install/ and follow the routine using db osc2




U can have multiple instances, I have


A) mirror of online system

B) testing enviremont

C-...) several environments with different contribs for development


If I change s.th I do it on develop instances, when it runs I bring it to test, if itworksfine I bring it online an back thisstate immediately into my local mirror!
