Right now I am fighting with Magento. This is a real pro, and i am struggling with it. Last couple of weeks i faced a lot of obstacle to grip Magento but now I feel that according to time I am gonna flying with it 😀
Though I gathered lot of experience over magento, but now I need to share only first two things that is migrate the installation with data and database to a different server. I tested my store in localhost and then upload the hole thing to a live server, and here I faced two problem that is connect database with live server and another is my live store redirect me to my localhost. This is annoying and after some googling I found the solution as follows,
First to connect with live database you need to open the xml file /app/etc/local.xml and edit the connection block with your database credentials.
Second, from database table core_config_data edit web/unsecure/base_url path value with your live server URL
Bingooo!!!! I solved my two prime issues with this. Hope you can also solve yours.
