need help, from temporary web address to domain name

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I built a shop on a temporary web address so that my client could keep her site up on her previous hosting. Now that it is ready to be up, I was wondering how I should go about for the change. I gave it a try and simply pointed the domain to the site I built but it looked 'themeless'. I attached an image of what it looked like.


I know I have to change the name servers o that the domain points to the hosting account. But concerning the prestashop files. What files do I need to alter?

well, you need to create a database on the new host and import the contents from a backup of your prestashop.
the you can simply copy the whole folder over, or make a new install and copy the theme and the setting files + images ...etc

Thanks for replying.

But that's not what i meant. This is the shop I built http://74.220.219.75/~lovemont/

Its on a temporary webaddress and now I want to point the real domain name to it. I know that I've got to change the name servers for the domain to change web host, but concerning prestashop is there any files I should modify?


Please respond, I need help.

Thank you.

normally what i do is build everything i need to in development, then do a clean install of presta on the webserver and just move over and config the things i need to (modules, mails, theme etc)

once you deploy however keep in mind relative paths may change for images if you used actual paths (and not relative ones built into presta)

also check the config/settings.inc.php file for relative pathways (__PS_BASE_URI__)
