The e-commerce.

Can I update just part of the DB when changing hosts?


Recommended Posts

I'm currently working on updating a store, but it's on a different server from the live store. The new store will have a different look and feel, and will have MANY more products...otherwise it is unchanged. So, since the live store is still operational, and still taking orders, how do I make the transition to the new site once it's ready? The DB will have changed (new customers with new orders mostly).


If I bring over the whole database from the current live site, it will write over all the new products in the development site that I have been entering. So, is it possible to split up the DB and bring over only those tables that deal with customers and orders? Or, will that screw up any foreign keys in the DB?


Someone has done this before, I just know it! ;)


Thank you!
