duplicating oscommerce for second webshop

Recommended Posts

hello

i am running my webshop with osc v2.3.3.4 since some years
and now i am going to open a new „warehouse“ with new stock / items in a different country.

 
so i would like to create a seccond (empty) webshop
but keep all the design & technical modifications
and just fill it up with new products again.
 
since i have no clue about any of this i am looking for help.
i assume i need a new database too?
 
not sure if this is a request to post here
and if there is an easy way for me to do this myself with a tutorial or so
otherwise i am able to pay someone of course.
 
many thanks!

what i always do is this.
for i make a new install, with the install files.
Then all is set with the new config files.
afcourse when doing that, you also made a new sql database on your server.
i backup the config files from the server.

then i overwrite the the second new installed files with the ones of your first shop.
place back the configfiles and its done.
 

then in the database i delete all the sqls, and import the sql from the first shop.

afcourse al objects and clients are in there, but in the admin you just delete them all.

and your done.

i do it this way because, then you have all the settings, and all the addons etc, the same way.

You can do this much easier emptying the customers, orders and products/categories related tables directly in the database/mysql.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '&', expecting T_VARIABLE or '$' in /homepages/39/d26756199/htdocs/catalog-KPH/admin/includes/column_left.php on line 50

it comes up when i try to login into the admin backend.

your correct, but sometimes products are linked to various sql places.

For now because i tough with the admin you doing it safe, but slower.

 

They are always linked to several tables.

And if there are thousands of products, customers, orders? 😉

WIthout knowing more details it's impossible to help:

- PHP version of your old store and the new store

- show us the snippet of the file which produces the error
