The e-commerce.

replace samples database with production database


Recommended Posts



I am working with OSCommerce Online Merchant version 2.2 RC2.


When I installed OSCommerce I enabled the installation of a sample database. I now need to remove the sample database and the related images. I have exported an mysqldump file from a production database of our site. How do I safely replace the sample database? For example, is the restore feature of the Database Backup Manager effectively mysqldump?


Thanks for any assistance on this point.

I would use myphpadmin to remove the data from the selected tables and then use an SQL statement to populate the table with you data from the previous database. You will need to be careful not to change the table structure of the new database if it is not EXACTLY the same tables as the old database.
