Normally it should be as simple as performing the following steps:

1) Make sure you have an empty database on your new server

2) Open phpMyAdmin through your cPanel, Plesk or whatever interface you have from your provider

3) Select the SQL tab from phpMyAdmin and import the backup file you made earlier from your old database

4) Adjust both the catalog/includes/configure.php and admin/includes/configure.php for the new database name and password. Also check in both files if the set paths still apply for your new server, otherwise change them according to your new environment also.

 

You can also just copy the osCommerce files from your old server to your new server instead of first installing a fresh osCommerce (in that case step 4 is vital)

Thanks for replying Wheeloftime

 

When you download Oscommerce, you have a database already. Can we do in different way? Like after you uploaded your new products and everything, you download the database and then put it in your Oscommerce like the original oscommerce when you download. And then we can install it without go to phpMyAdmin and something like that.

 

Thanks so much

The installation database is different from the backup you've taken of your old database, so you can't use it in the installation.

 

You need to create a new blank database, and, as advised above, use the SQL tab in phpMyAdmin to import the contents of the database backup.
