Need To Create A Live Image

Hello Members,

Have been working on CS-Cart MVE since the last couple of months. I want to go live in a couple of weeks, hence wanted to create a exact image of the environment that I have been working on, to have it as a live environment and use my first environment for development and testing.

What will be the fastest way to create a copy? Speaking at a top level, will copying the public_html directory and DB to a different location of server and pointing a separate domain name to the new public_html directory, be sufficient

Or will I have to start from scratch, like installing cs-cart, upgrade all the patches, configure and applying all setting and layout changes, install and configure all addons, create a new DB and copy data from previous DB.

Members please help me with your experiences.

Note : Currently using shared hosting on fastcomet.

Thanks and Regards,

Sunil.

You can use the following instructions to make a copy of the website

Thanks got a link there to create a dev copy.

One of the steps is

"If your current store is installed on a host with cPanel, go to cPanel → Files → File Manager, select all the files of your store, and click Compress."

What is meant by all the files of the store? As I mentioned earlier, I'm using a hosting environment by fastcomet, and have not made any major changes to the file structure or files. Does public_html as all the store files? If not, then which other directories should also be copies?

Thanks and Regards,

Go to the root directory of CS-Cart installation and select all files and directories

Hello,

Is it advisable to have both the development and live versions on the same c-panel accounts.

You might need to provide the credentials of the development cpanels account for a variety of reasons and may not want anyone to mess/see files/DB of the live version.

Please suggest.

Thanks,

Sunil

Could successfully do it.

I was facing issues as I was not setting some of the settings in config.local.php correctly.
