The e-commerce.

database transfer


Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone


I have a question, as I want to move my database from one server to a new one, where should I modify? It seems there is nothing to do at the backend?


Should I just modify the configure.php file? is it all?


Thank you

be VERY VERY careful when you attempt this and make backups...I just went through hell doing it with a store. You might also want to make sure you backup any HTML if you use it within your product descriptions.


edit all the configs once transferred to the new server, and also to be safe, I would do a clean install of osC on the new server, then use the REPLACE query to update the backend.

Do a backup of your data using Oscommerce>admin from your old...

Copy the backup to your new admin>backup...you should see it in your

new tools>backup dir after you have set up your new correctly...

Then just reload using the oscommerce admin>tools>reload...

The oscommerce does a backup of all your tables...and your reload will

reload all your tables.

I hope this helps.
