The e-commerce.

how to merge two shops


Recommended Posts



I basically want to move my shop from one server to another(new domain name). After many failed attempts of copying the fles i have created a new blanc store at IPage uning it's built in oscommerce wisard.


Now I need to copy all the necessary files from my last server and to move them to IPage. I'm new at this, can you please give me an advice which files should I overwrite and which should I keep?


The sql file, is it shop specific or server specific?

Should I restore the database in my new blanc shop and which backup file should I use?

what about htaccsess files?

Use your FTP client to download the old shop from the existing server. Then, use it to upload the shop to the new server. Use PHPMYADMIN on the old server to export a copy of the database, then use it again on the new server to import that database.


Almost done, now, all you have to do is change the two configure.php files to reflect the path of the new server.



That's it.
