Can not Import an Exported Catalogue

Recommended Posts

I am trying to export all the products from a store and then to import them to another store.

1 store: I press Export Catalogue, it opens a new browser tab containing many rows, I copy all into clipboard, then paste into an empty text-file = size 144.8 kb.

2 store:  I press Import Catalogue, press Browse button, select the above file, press Save, then on the next page press Save and I see some activity happens, but nothing is Imported.

How to do a successfull Import into store 2 ?

Thanks!

Store 1 and store 2 are on the same hosting.

May be it is more easy just to connect store 2 to database of store 1 and use it ? - How to connect store 2 to database of store 1 ?

We have positively concluded that connecting two stores to the same database will not work as well as it may appear at first.

May we ask why you want to have two stores with the same contents of the inventory? Will the inventory eventually diverge?

There are solutions for enforcing distinct customer-bases with respective pricing (and hiding prices), and solutions for different appearances (skins).

Currently do not work store 1 nor store 2. Store's 1 database contains about 60 products. Store's 2 database is empty.

I would like to migrate from store 1 to store 2, because I afraid I have broken one or more files into strore 1.

And finally I like more the domain name of store 2.

So, if you plan to abandone Store1, then it is OK to have Store2 use the existing database.

From Store1, copy the file /includes/global.inc.php to Store2.

Test.

Thank you very much!

It works Store2 using existing database. I need only to upload the images into Store2, because they are not in database.

References to the images should be in the database (CubeCart_filemanager).

But they do need to be copied to the new store to /images/ folder. Also /images/logos/ folder.

May I find a free skin with appearance in red color instead of green ?
