The e-commerce.

Re-Installation of osCommerce


Recommended Posts

As I'm contemplating this myself (unfortunately)


I figured I'd start a thread on it and find out if I'm missing anything - or have overlooked anything.


For a re-install, I'll need to...


- backup the database.

- backup the existing osCommerce files (just in case)


- delete current site files from server.

- re-upload a new fresh install.

- set the correct permissions.

- run the install procedure.


*this is where I'm stuck*


What options will I need to set - to be able to have it set its self up - but just work with the database already in place (saving me the procedure of re-uploading and adding thousands of products)


I don't want to have to add all the products again. Is this possible?


Once that bit's done - I just upload the images and css to customise the look again (and add the contributions again I suppose)




Is is possible to just re-upload a backup copy of the entire site, without having to re-install?


My problem (I think) is with file permissions.


Incidentally a basic solution to my problem might be if there is a list of all the files in osCommerce, and their correct permission values (CHMOD).
