In Topic: Old 2.2MS2 database longshot?

21 January 2017 - 00:40

Hi Tim, It has been a while since I did mine, but I think you need to convert old 2.2 database to 2.3.4, then use that other info to get it to BS. Check out this link for what to do first. Remember to have a backup copy saved somewhere of original DB just in case!!!



In Topic: Upgrading but what version is Confusing

20 January 2017 - 15:52

Hi Tim,


I will concur with Rainer from what I know go with the version 2.3.4BS Edge which can be downloaded at the following link: https://github.com/g...hive/master.zip


The newer version is coming, but I do not think quite ready yet and if I understand correctly there will be a way to upgrade to the newest from 2.3.4BS when the time comes.

In Topic: What are different PayPal modules

I would say Jack gave a very good response for your question. The only thing I think more to add would be with the PayPal Payments Pro (Direct Payment)  - $30/month you get the virtual terminal ability which means you will be able to log into their website and process payments if you take a phone order and such, but if not I would say try the Hosted Solution and see how it goes for the customer to stay on your website if that it what you would prefer and you can always upgrade to the other if needed.

In Topic: How to Move Store Home Page to Root without Moving Store?

Hi, I am not 100% sure on this, but believe this is how to do it. Please make back up of any files you change or plan to overwrite before doing anything!


In order to also set up your main domain to use a subdirectory on your hosting account you will need to set up a redirect in the .htaccess file in the public_html folder so that the server knows that any request for your main domain will be redirected to a subdirectory on public_html.


Modifying the .htaccess
The following code will need to be added to the .htaccess file in the public_html folder of your hosting account. You will need to insert the following code block and make modifications as noted in the (#) comments.
You will need to change the two instances of example.com to your domain, and the three instances of subdirectory to the folder where you want your site.
# .htaccess main domain to subdirectory redirect 
# Do not change this line. 
RewriteEngine on 
# Change example.com to be your main domain. 
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?example.com$ 
# Change 'subdirectory' to be the directory you will use for your main domain. 
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/subdirectory/ 
# Don't change the following two lines. 
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f 
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d 
# Change 'subdirectory' to be the directory you will use for your main domain. 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /subdirectory/$1 
# Change example.com to be your main domain again. 
# Change 'subdirectory' to be the directory you will use for your main domain 
# followed by / then the main file for your site, index.php, index.html, etc. 
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?example.com$ 
RewriteRule ^(/)?$ subdirectory/index.php [L]
Visitors to your Web site will not be able to tell that your main domain is using a subdirectory, they will still see the Web site address as http://www.example.com/page.html.
