Downloading Entire Store Eaypopulate

Recommended Posts

I have a fairly large product database in my store maybe 2500 titles.

I use easypopulate to manage updates, download file make changes then re-upload.

 

There is some advice in the easypopulate manual about servers timing out when trying to download larger stores and I have tried the things they mention but I am still timing out.

 

Has anyone figured out a way to correct this problem?

 

here are the two lines although they appear to be adjustments for uploading more so than downloading.

I can split the files for the upload but do not have the options for the download.

 

// uncomment this if you are not on a safe mode server and you are getting timeouts

set_time_limit(300);

 

 

// if you are splitting files, this will set the maximum number of records to put in each file.

// if you set your php.ini to a long time, you can make this number bigger

global $maxrecs;

$maxrecs = 100; // default, seems to work for most people. Reduce if you hit timeouts

//$maxrecs = 4; // for testing

 

Any Ideas?

 

Thanks for the community support.

Upload the file to the temp directory using FTP, then use the "Upload from Temp". I've got 13,000 products, and this works for me.

What if you have more than 1 file in this directory? Is it supposed to bring up a "browse" window? I keep getting an error when I click on "Insert into DB." Please let me know. Does the file have to be named something specific?

 

Thanks!
