The e-commerce.

Delete products from database


Recommended Posts

I bought an off the shelf oscommerce package that was preloaded with about 3000 products. I decided that I didn't want all products/categories so I 'disabled' them via the cpanel.


However they still show up in the search facility - how do I stop this from happening? Is there a field in one of the tables that changes so I can identify the products I don't want displayed and delete them?


Pls help.

I haven't used it but the admin - copy, move and delete multiple products looks like it would help with this.


A tool which allows you to copy, move and delete multiple products in one step. Very simple installation and handling. Installation hints included.


If you did try to delete them directly in the database using phpMyAdmin or similar, you could end up with a mess due to lost database integrity.


However you proceed, be sure to backup your database before attempting it.

Rule #1: Without exception, backup your database and files before making any changes to your files or database.

Rule #2: Make sure there are no exceptions to Rule #1.
