Can i use an existing osCommerce website with jCommerce?


When you install jCommerce,it installs osCommerce automatically. So no need to install osCommerce separately.
jCommerce includes osCommerce files.Folder structure and db structure are almost same for both.
So you can use osCommerce data with jCommerce as follows:
1.Import your previous osCommerce data to jCommerce(Joomla) database using phpMyAdmin or another database manager tool
2.Upload digital product's downloads,products images etc from osCommerce directory to jCommerce directory(components\com_jcommerce\)
3.Done
But if you want to connect jCommerce with existing osCommerce website,you can do this too.
1.Go to jCommerce admin panel,Find a button named "Parameters"(in Joomla 1.5.x) or "Options"(in Joomla 1.6.x-3.x) at the top-right or top-left corner.Click on it(in Joomla >=1.6.x See in Preferences Tab).
2.Set No for "Use Joomla Datase".
3.Put values for Database Username ,Database Password ,Host ,Database Name of Existing osCommerce site.
4.For digital product's downloads,products images etc ,upload them from osCommerce directory to jCommerce directory(components\com_jcommerce\)
If you dont have options(Parameters) with your jCommerce,then you also can edit and put database details in components\com_jcommerce\includes\configure.php and components\com_jcommerce\admin\includes\configure.php
