Hi all,

I have configured the config.php on both the main and admin folders, but i'm stuck on the import.

My old database was named after my old domain, database ocABC for ABC.com, since it's installed using my host's script via Softaculous, Opencart v1.5.5.1

I installed a new Opencart installation, v1.5.6 via Softaculous as well, database ocDEF for DEF.com

When I tried to import the database ocABC into ocDEF, my old products are not being imported. I looked at phpAdmin, and realized that the import just imported the tables in ocABC into ocDEF. The product, categories tables in database ocDEF are not updated at all.

Any advice?

I have followed the instructions stated here...

Hi,

I am from Softaculous team.

How did you import the database from abc to def ?

Also it seems that your installation at abc.com is 1.5.5.1 and def.com is 1.5.6
It is recommended that you upgrade your installation at abc.com to 1.5.6 and then import it to def.com

I'd suggest you to try an alternative way to move your data from one domain to another.
First of all install a new version of OpenCart on your new domain.
After that move your data (products, customer, orders etc) via service called cart2cart.
In the end, customize your design and some other information, that migration service didn't transfer.

That's it! As for me, it's the easiest way to move your store.

I hope this method will solve your issue!

Hi hi,

Thanks for replying.

I managed to make it work, I simply modified the config.php files for def.com to point to the old database ocABC.

All my products...settings...images...theme modifications are all intact. Everything seems to be working so far...

I'm just find it weird that the import using phpAdmin did not work properly. Instead of updating the tables in ocDEF, the importing process simply added the tables from ocABC into ocDEF. Any views on this?

Also, if I remove my ABC.com folder using fileZilla, will that screw up DEF.com?

I'm assuming the opencart installation files and the database ocABC are separate for ABC.com...

It did what's safe, added. It probably also made use of a new prefix. On deletion, test it first by simply renaming that directory. If the hinges of 'ell begin to glow in the dark, rename it back; if bats flee, leave it renamed; for peace of mind wait to delete it outright.
