ALthough your script does the job, (well with some slight modifications, such as closing the php off ;) ), ...
1. There is absolulety no need for a closing php.tag if the script is pure php
2. Much worther is the wrong opening php.tag <? which should be always <?php

just add the table names to the table array that you wish to clear.

I have OpenCart v1.4.9.3 installed. I have an existing database. I am going to create a new database and new OpenCart install using an export of my existing database. I want to reset order, invoice, customer counters etc.

The only things that I want in my new database from my existing database are: (basically anything product related)
product descriptions
product catagories
product options
product images
product option images
product related
(I am sure there are more tables that need to be added to this product table list...)

I want to delete everything else in the database and reset all counters orders, invoices, customers, etc.

This is what I was planning on doing.... is this right?
1) Export existing database using PHP Admin
2) Import existing database to new database using PHP Admin
3) Delete all products that I no longer want
4) Delete all product categories that I no longer want
5) Delete all manufacturers that I no longer want
6) Run PHP delete_demo_data.php script (below)

I was planning on running the delete_demo_date.php PHP Script that was posted earlier in this post

Code: Select all


$tables = array(

// for each table add a delete line to script
foreach ($tables as $table) {
    $query = "TRUNCATE TABLE `oc_$table`;";
    $result = mysqli_query($db, $query);
    if (!$result) {
        echo "<p>The data from $table was not deleted</p>";
    echo "<p>$query</p>";
    } else {
        echo "<p>The data from $table was deleted</p>";

Two questions:
1) Is this a comprehensive list of all OpenCart tables that should be TRUNCATED for OpenCart version If not what tables should I add?
2) I understand that TRUNCATE TABLE opencart_table will reset the counter in the table (is this correct?)

Any help would be appreciated.

#2.) as per the reploy above yes.

step 6.) will wipe out all the data in the tables listed in the script. so, possibly your steps above might be useless.

@ this script
opencart should really offer 3 types of data setup:
1.) full demo as of now
2.) data for only the sections that setup up configs and such.
3.) an option to #2 where you
