Secure key
« on: January 05, 2014, 08:24:25 PM »
On original installation there is a message that says:

Keep this secure key in save place.
This key is used to encrypt customer's secure data.
You will need this key if you move data to a different shopping cart installation.

and then it gives the key.

So where/ how do we use this information if we move the cart files to a new server or another location?  I searched, but couldn't find instructions.

Default location for the keys is in /system/keys/

You can set custom location for it anywhere in the server. This is set with define('ENCRYPTION_KEYS_DIR', '/path/to/keys/');

This is actually in the help.
