installing and testing add-ons

Recommended Posts


Is there anyway to install and test add-ons without disturbing the main on-line site?

I really dont like the idea of installing another osCommerce and naming it different just for testing. Any suggestions would be great.

Hi, Ideally you would make a copy of the store (i.e. files and database) either on another domain (or sub domain) or even better running on your local computer. You won't need to start from scratch - instead copy the files and copy the database and change the necessary details in the includes/configure.php admin/includes/configure.php files.
