Firstly thanks for this great site, I am really looking forward to the updates and info!
Ihave been using Magento for my shop but I am planing to upgrade to Magento 1.8, however due to me being a noon, over the last few months I have been installing/removing a bunch of extensions, breaking and fixing things. Now basically my magento install is full of extra folders, DB tablea and files that I don’t really use and I don’t particularly like it.
I am planning to do a clean install to neaten things up so I can make sure I only install extensions that I need, but I am not too sure how I go about copying only the product, customer,order, and config to the clean install. Does anyone know what tables I need to copy as I don’t want to copy the entire DB.
I will appreciate any help, and I understand the answer might not be simple, but if anyone could point me in the correct direction it would be appreciated.
Ace question, however no matter how much I type here, this needs a proper set of guides to do it properly.
However as a temporary fix/solution:
What I would suggest is grabbing a freelancer to do this for you from any of the major sites for this.
What you could do with the products & customers is use this http://www.magentocommerce.com…..nformation which is the dataflow manager for Magento. This will be fine on small numbers of products & customers, if it’s loads, ie >2,000 database table transfers would most likely be better. And as for orders not sure is my honest answer here, it’s something I have not personally done.
Hope that kinda helps you!
Thanks for the help, and I do agree about the need for a long guide.
But still I appreciate your help, I might look into the export/import option as I dont have too much customer/product data right now.
Regarding a freelancer, do you have any advice on how to go about finding someone who is reputable/trustworthy? As I don’t exactly like the thought of giving someone free access to my server.
Thanks for your advice.
That’s generally the easy part, as all the freelancing sites have feedback systems of some kind :)
If you’re looking for a trusted party, ask the chaps over at http://dzine-hub.com they specialise in design, but have migrated sites before.
