The e-commerce.

Still Learning...


Recommended Posts

I learnt yesterday to backup my tables every time before I deleted old orders :rolleyes:


The other day, because I wanted to get a accurate reading of my sales, I went through and deleted all the orders I had that had gone stale (most I suspect originated from customers wanting to access shipping prices) anyway one wasn't :o this one was someone having a few problems with the banking system, and yesterday sent me a email to ask me for some banking information - suddenly I was in panic as I realised that I had deleted his order, a frantic search of the last back up I made showed it was done before the order was placed.


Took me ages to find the confirmation email as it was in another language and had not got into the correct folder, but I found it and then from that rebuilt his order in the tables B)



Must have wasted a good 2 or 3 hours on that one :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

My store is currently running Phoenix

I'm currently working on and hope to get it live before arrives (maybe 🙄 )

I used to have a list of add-ons here but I've found that with the ones that supporters of Phoenix get any other add-ons are not really neccessary

Back up your site as well as your data might be a better mantra.
