The e-commerce.

Transfering to new Server situation.


Recommended Posts

Hi! We currently have a website hosted with a company using a different e-store and we are switching to a new Hosting company and we will be using OScommerce. While I'm constructing the new Oscommerce, I want the old one to keep working not to loose any sales.. What's the best way to do this?


I was thinking this:


The DNS of the store address stays pointed to the current server. With the new hosting company I get a free domain so I chose anything.com and built the new oscommerce sore with that address on the new server so it doesn't affect the current store, and once I'm done, I update the DNS to point to the new server and I change the store path?


Is this the right way to do this?


This said, how do I change the store address/path? By editing the includes/configure.php and the admin/includes/configure.php ? What exactly do I need to change, witch lines?


I need some advice on this.
