Porting a VM3 Shop
« on: August 15, 2019, 20:16:46 pm »
I’ve managed to set up a VirtueMart shop at one website.  :D I’d  like to transfer it to a different website.
Is there a clever way of porting my settings for products and shipment etc. to the new Joomla website, without having to start …all over again?  :-\
VM v. 3.4.2

Install Akeba backup and transfer a copy of the site.

Thanks for your swift reply Jörgen.

Aah, but it's just the VM3 shop that needs to be transferred, not the whole site.

I would probably install VM on the site properly, then delete all virtuemart db tables and import the other ones.
