Delete and repopulate Catalog on daily basis


Recommended Posts

On a daily basis I am updating information from my supplier. I have appr. 20,000 current articles on stock, and many new ones comes in and old ones have to be removed.


What I plan is to drop the content of catalog, categories and manufactures every day, and then use Easypopulate to re-populate the entire catalog. Of course this would mean that some functionalities as for example "Best viewed products" would not work, but besides this:


1) Are there any major disadvantages/pitfalls by using this method?

2) Could I just drop the contents from Products*, Categories* and Manufacturers?


Thanks for any help

i have done that and used easy populate to re upload the database, it installs all the categories and subcategories again.


if you have 20000 items i would suggest you create another site copy such as a subdomain and test it for yourself.
