Brand new to all of this so thank you in advance for you patience.

Downloaded the correct export / import version for my OC..... 1.5.2.1

Thru FTP, uploaded the "UPLOAD" file into my root directory which was blank since this is a brand new host.

Don't know if it matters, but again, I didn't have a VQmod previously as I am brand new to OC.

I am using Blue Host, installed OC 1.5.2.1 thru their Cpanel simple scripts.

As instructed in the read me..... I tried to set access rights in the top admin but there is NO entry for "tool / export" to select.

I have gone to the admin page in OC and can't find any reference to import / export.

Went back to FTP to verify that everything is loaded. From what little I know about programming, admittedly, everything looks correct.

Uninstalled OC 3 times........ installed and then tried again.

I followed the instructions by doing the following the change below, only one that I saw that wasn't correctly identical.

Readme said to change this......

<file name="admin/language/english/common/header.php">
<operation>
<search position="after"><![CDATA[$_['text_backup']]]></search>
<add><![CDATA[$_['text_export'] = 'Export / Import';]]

change it to this..........


<file name="admin/language/english/common/header.php">
<operation>
<search position="after"><![CDATA[$_['text_backup'] = 'Backup / Restore';]]></search>
<add><![CDATA[$_['text_export'] = 'Export / Import';]]


Other than that, everything else is identical in both the followings since I didn't have a previous vqmod folder and am using what was uploaded in the import / export tool.

admin/view/template/common/header.tpl

admin/controller/common/header.php

Although I didn't think it relevant, I changed the above with no difference so changed it back to original.

What do I need to do now?
