import a old database to a new magento

To move database to a new magento is not so easy. Actually it is easy but very ugly.

  1. you first import the database.
  2. back up old skin,media,template which you design your frontend look,back up core files as also if you made any custom core files.
  3. now create a database in which you want to install the new magento
  4. now import the database
  5. when you import the database in the newly created database there will be a error massage, but i still not found that it will effect any in your new database
  6. After import old database in your new database go installation windward  to installation
  7. but before select the database you first edit core_config_data to change two things  no.1 is the base url of unsecure and no.2 is the secure to newly login url.
  8. now copy the old skin,template,media and core files to their desire places.
  9. oh i lost a word after step 6 you must delete all cache from var files.

That’s ok.Have fun.
