Re: how do i overwrite the megento database

Hi,

 

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. Smiley Happy

 

Make sure you clear cache manually before accessing the website with previous database.

 

Thank you

Re: how do i overwrite the megento 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.
