Importing A Database?


Recommended Posts


I've just done this. I first created an Excel spreadsheet of my catalogue. Then I wrote SQL scripts for each of the records I wanted to insert into the MySQL database. I uploaded all of the images before running the scripts. Main problem is understanding the database structure so that you put the data in the correct place. Mine worked a treat - the first time I saw my catalogue was when it was all loaded - quite impressive. I've got 500 products each with a size variations so I couldn't have loaded the data any other way. There may be a better way to do it but since I've got database experience this was my prefererd route. If you haven't got database knowledge then you are a bit stuck

Hope this helps :D
