The e-commerce.

Product Id in databse


Recommended Posts




On our shop when I first added products all was in right sequence, but then I had to delete whole category and add products again.


Instead of start from product id "0" ids are starting from 400 or so on means products we already deleted is still occupying place in database.


Can some one please advise me how I can totally remove or set so new product id start from number in previously deleted numbers. or if I want to totally clean products and add products again in category how I can set new product start from id 1 and so on.

The products are not occupying anywhere, they have been deleted.


To start the numbers from 1 you need to drop the table and recreate it.


This article talks about starting from a higher no for another table.
