Moving store to main site


Mort-lemur

Recommended Posts

Hi again,

 

Slowly getting the hang of this - I think.

 

my store is now set up in the /catalog directory - I would like to move it so that it is accessed from my www address without using a redirect page - how can I do this ??

 

Thanks All

Now running on a fully modded, Mobile Friendly 2.3.4 Store with the Excellent MTS installed - See my profile for the mods installed ..... So much thanks for all the help given along the way by forum members.

You can use your FTP program to highlight all files and folders in the catalog folder and simply drag them to the root directory... making sure to maintain the same file/folder order,

 

Then in your two configure.php files - remove all instances of 'catalog' from the address paths as below

 

Sample (yours should be similar, there will be more changes than below) :

define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/catalog/');

define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/userName/public_html/catalog/');

 

change to:

 

define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/');

define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/userName/public_html/');

You can download a copy of the catalog folder to your local computer and rename it catalog_backup in case you make a mistake

Hi,

Thanks for this. I followed this guidance to change the name of the directory osC resides in and the catalog loads properly with the files in the new folder.

 

Additionally, I'd like the breadcrumb navigation at the top to say "Gift Shop Home" in place of the word "Catalog" at the top left, and have the word "Top" similarly replaced with a different term. I can't seem to find where i need to make those changes.

many thanks,

sue

Hi,

Thanks for this. I followed this guidance to change the name of the directory osC resides in and the catalog loads properly with the files in the new folder, but I can't get into admin as it keeps redirecting to the old folder name of "catalog".

 

Additionally, I'd like the breadcrumb navigation at the top to say "Gift Shop Home" in place of the word "Catalog" at the top left, and have the word "Top" similarly replaced with a different term. I can't seem to find where i need to make those changes.

many thanks,

sue

 

Hi, I can't help with the admin problem, but the instructions for breadcrumb navigation are at

 

http://www.oscommercehowto.com/how-to-chan...-seo-usability/

 

A superb set of tutorials - I have had a great time reading through them and 'aware-ish' of what the chages each tutorial does.

 

Regards,

 

Phill.
