Migration into a fresh installation
« on: August 21, 2020, 07:06:38 PM »
Hi,

I had some issues with upgrades so I would like to start with a fresh installation of AbanteCart in a new subfolder, migrate my store there, and then clone this new installation back to my original store's subfolder. (No hosting change)

Besides backing up the database and the content using -system/data/backup-restore and then uploading it to my fresh installation, is there anything else to be done?

Is there really a need to backup core files and copy those to my new installation? Or should I completely avoid this?

Thanks

Thanks Basara.

What confuses me is the backup of the core files.

I thought core files are not modified by AbanteCart during normal customization done through the admin panel because core files can get overwritten by software upgrades. Is this understanding incorrect?

My intention is to have a completely fresh install of AbanteCart and then move necessary files to it to re-establish my store.

If I upload to the fresh installation all the core files that I backed up from my existing store, wouldn't that overwrite some of the updates made in the new version?

If you do not modify core files they should be same with same version installation

I see. Thanks.

Where are the changes made under "Layout & Blocks Manager" stored?

Also, now that AbanteCart has "Email Templates" that can be modified, where are these changes stored?
