I'm trying to install a new store and i already have a database that is fully loaded with the store products. how do i use my loaded database to overwrite the one that was set up when i installed magento. i'm working with magento ce 18.104.22.168
Solved! Go to Solution.
If I understand correctly, You have a previous Magento Database with all your products in it.
You can simply create a new database and install Magento to it.
After the installation is complete, you can change the database details to previous one in /etc/local.xml,
I have done this to many 1.x upgrades.
Make sure you clear cache manually before accessing the website with previous database.
Thank you for explaining where to change the information. But where or how do I upload the database I already have with my products in it. The database is a .SQL file and I'm using a ftp program to upload files to the server. I just don't know where I'm to upload/install my existing database.
