The theme does not have anything to do with the data itself.

 

If you are advanced user, you could just copy database tables which are connected to products and migrate them to your local enviroment.

 

If you do not have programming practice and not so good in SQL, then you can just export the products to CSV using default Export capabilities and then import it to your local enviroment.

1) export database from your remote environment

2) import it to your local environment

 

if you want also pictures of products, categories etc. copy whole /img/ directory

 

Thank you guys, gonna try that :D

It will not probably allow you to install anything in the same database and you will be asked to change prefix or use another database.

Why you want to reinstall? Delete files except config folder and upload them back if you want to have fresh files.

 

Reinstallation will not help you with data as it is all the same and nothing will be changed.

because the website is buggy, and the theme they using is for 1.5 and they are suing PS 1.6, also some of the functions at BO are not working
