Database Back up Can I use that to duplicate sites


Recommended Posts



Can I use the database backup to duplicate sites. For example I went to my www.carvideo1.com website and did a database back and saved the .sql file to my harddrive..


Now I went to my www.rc-wholesale.com and clicked on restore. I used the file I downloaded from the site.. Nothing changed??


I want to copy all my products and departments that I added to the www.carvideo1.com site and transfer them to the www.rc-wholesale.com


Please help me with this :blink:

Did the old database have old information in it? You may have just 'appended' your products to the other database.


I would suggest using myphpadmin or somesuch interface and emptying all the tables in the old database, then insert the backup copy.


The other thing that MAY have happened was that you encountered the dreaded PHP timeout, which would have just abtruptly stopped the restore. How many products are we talking about??
