Installation Migration - Help Please


BlessIsaacola

Recommended Posts

How do I migrate my install from http://www.clevershoppers.com/catalog/ to http://www.clevershoppers.com ? I thought about creating a flash that plays for about 10 seconds and route automatically to the catalog but that would still be a 10 seconds delay for the customer even though it would be a welcome message.

 

I try to use permanent redirect but had issues with that. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

While you're at it...does anyone know how to get the Admin view to display like original install instead of displaying database field names?

 

Thanks!

everyone seems to complicate the heck out of this and it is pretty simple.

First leave catalog as it is for the time being a s back up.

1.) Download the entire catalog dir.

2.)In BOTH configure.php files, change the path to reflect the root or (/) dir

http//:www.somesite.com/catalog to

http//:www.somesite.com

path

define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/ccatalog/'); to

define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/');

LEAVE THE DB STUFF ALONE

3.) find in /includes either application_top.php or files.php (depending on your release)

define('FILENAME_DEFAULT', 'default.php'); change to

define('FILENAME_DEFAULT', 'index.php');

4.) rename in catalog default .php to

index.php

rename in includes/[language]/default.php to

index.php

You are now set to run from the root dir.

5.) upload your new catalog to your root dir.

If you have an index.html file there delete it or rename it.
