Reinstalling Only the SQL Database


Recommended Posts

How can I reinstall only the original database? I don't want to reinstall anything else.


have you made any alterations to the site by way of contributions - If so you will not be able to unless it made no database changes


If you have clean install you can reinstall the database but you will loose all data collected (Like customers etc)

Hello, I have added a contribution, but I can quickly update the fresh database. I only need to original database.


If you've not added any contributions to your database then you can simply access the database using something like phpmyadmin and drop all the tables from the database. Be warned though this will wipe your database clean!


Upload the original OSC sql file and you'll have the original database back on.

What is the title of the original file. Where is it located?


From the original download folder:


(your drive)\oscommerce-2.2ms2\catalog\install\oscommerce.sql


It may also be on your server if you havent deleted the Install directory yet....
