moving to a new web host

Recommended Posts

I am moving our site and store to a new hosting company. When I move the files for my store are there particular files or glitches that I should be on the look out for? I believe that I will obviously need to change my "server username" and "server password" in the configure.php file in Includes. Is that the only place that I would need to change? Do I also need to change it in Admin/includes configure.php?

 

Thank you. Since I only do this on an extremely rare basis I am afraid that I will indeed miss something.

You need to export the database too but I think that all you need chap unless you've setup and strange links to other dirs.

Thanks, Driftwood.

 

In which file or folder would the database(s) be located? If I copied the whole site (files, folders and subfolders) I would expect that everything would be included?? Will these database files contain all of my customers' info and order histories?

 

Thank you.

Carder,

 

You need to do an Export of your MySQL databse through phpMyAdmin (usually accessable through your cPanel or similar). This is where all data is stored. All of the osCommerce files talk to the database for everything (well, almost). You then need to import it into your new database on your new web host, and update any databse name/user changes in your configure.php files.

I'm sorry, but i cannot offer Free support via PM etc, and osCommerce forums prohibit me from putting any reference to paid support in my signauture.

However viewing my profile may provide links to my website or something like that which you may find useful.
