2.I need to copy my website from the existing server/host.

3.Then change it to my new server/host without losing it.

Right if you go to www.youroldsite.com/store/admin this will let you enter the admin section

Change www.youroldsite.com to whatevery your domain/subdomain was and change the store bit to where you installed oscommerce at e.g www.youroldsite.com/store or www.youroldsite.com/shop etc.

once you have typed in your oscommerce store location add: /admin at the end of your web URL e.g if your website oscommerce location was: www.tignesinteriors.co.uk/store you would type in www.tignesinteriors.co.uk/store/admin

Right your now into the admin section. Now click tools and click backup manager. Download a home directory backup.

You now have a backup now upload this backup to your new host using an FTP program. Now simply extract this file!

 

I hope this works.

You will also need to create a database for your store info at the new location. When moving a store use the following steps.

 

1. Backup database using osC admin tool.

2. Ftp all files to your local computer

3. At the new location go into your hosting control panel and create a new database and user making sure you assign the user to the database. This is a three part process, create database, create user with password, assign user to database.

4 populate the new database using the last backup you made. This can be done via phpmyadmin accessed through your hosting control panel

5. edit your two configure.php file to reflect your new server and database info

includes/configure.php

admin/includes/configure.php

6. ftp all your files to your new server

7. password protect your admin using the password protect directories link in your hosting control panel if available

The Knowledge Base is a wonderful thing.

Do you have a problem? Have you checked out Common Problems?

There are many very useful osC Contributions

Are you having trouble with a installed contribution? Have you checked out the support thread found Here
