1) You will need to transfer all your oscommerce files plus the database in order for your customers to access your store.

2) Offhand, I don't remember and don't feel like looking it up. Someone else can handle.

3) What osc does by default is to split the credit card. Half of it is sent to your database, which you can access in the administration area. The other half is emailed to you. This is for small companies that already have merchant accounts to process credit cards and are willing to process them manually.

4) When you go live, you will want to password protect the admin section. Go to your website's administrative panel and it should have an option to password protect a folder. Use it. If your webhost sucks as much as mine does, you may have to do it yourself by modifying the .htaccess file. It's complicated enough that I suggest you google htaccess and password for instructions.

Always BACK UP your files and your database before making any changes. Before asking questions, check out the Knowledge Base. Check out the contributions to see if your problem's solved there. Search the forums.
