The e-commerce.

move database to new server. How?


Recommended Posts

A client wants me to save his store for later. He's been using it for a year, but he wants me to download the database, images, etc. for future re-installation on a different server. I have phpmyadmin. Is that what I need? If so, What should I do with it?

I did search for the solution in the forums for about an hour. And I know the answer is in there because I remember seeing a thread on it when I was learning how to build my first store. If someone could point me in the right direction tho, I would appreciate it.

phpmyadmin and also the shopping cart system includes a system that will allow you to download the mysql database in code. Just download all the images and php files that the client has using an ftp server program. This will allow you to store all information on your hard drive, then later upload to a new server. same as the mysql database. What you have todo is start the new mysql database, make sure the user name and password system is setup correctly. If anything write a test .php file that will connect to the clients new mysql database, that happens to be on the new server. Now the database that you downloaded into a .sql file type will have to be uploaded using certain functionalities.



Sorry its late...not enough detail..
