Hi all, based in Australia and decided to go with an Indian company to develop our site. It has not gone smoothly to say the least and I have had an unexpected steep learning curve to get to where we are. Already 3 months overdue I want to at least get some products on the site over the weekend and be available for trade on Monday.
OK that said, what do I need to know from a configuration perspective and to request from the developer.
- I have requested a clean system a few times now but there seems a lot of rubbish there (remove all the setup files etc) prior to doing a start backup
- what configurations are important (I browsed yesterday and saw settings for country, currency which I changed)
- CRON setup?
- Remove all rubbish products and test stuff from the db. I have seen SQL commands on posts that I tried on the local server and it seemed ok. Do you agree this is OK?
Whatever advice you can offer is greatly appreciated to get through this fiasco.
I strongly recommend you to pause the process and review the project.
All the things you mentioned are a bad indication of the status of the project, and you should find a team of people or freelancer that can review the code and database, and create a plan for your launch.
There is only one time to launch a website. And it's better to get it right instead of fixing small errors forever.
That being said, I recommend you to review the Magento 2 User Guide:
I am sorry to say that the project hasn't gone very well for you. I agree that it's disappointing as well as frustrating when the project due date is gone and the project is still no where close to launch.
I will endorse what @Gabriel Guarino said, it's important that you stop ASAP and review the project.
