Hi Everyone,

I downloaded the "eCommerce MYSQL Database" a couple of months ago and have been using it with a User Registration Form on my site.

Now I have purchased PowerStore and it created a new set of Database Tables for PowerStore, with ps3 in front of the new table names.

Currently I have two "user" tables in my "MYSQL Database", see the attached image:

pse3_users
users

Should I delete the original Database files I created earlier or keep them both?

Or should I just link the two tables?

tables

Hi

depends on what you want to do, you can keep both tables and run the registration as PSĀ£ separately as I do on one of my sites.

Alternatively you could just combine the two tables or append the data.

Really depends on what your end game is are the two tables going to hold identical data?

cheers

Ian

Hi Ian,

First thank you for answering my message.

Good question, the plan was to have just one user table that would hold both newsletter sign-ups and customers from store.

However, PS nicked that when it created the second table. I assumed/expected the installation of the PS to see that the "eCommerce MYSQL Database" was already installed.

I know, never assume. :)

Hi

Ok my knowledge is limited but what I'd do is create a new page with blurb similar to:

register for our news letters here and for special offers etc etc.

then create a button linking to the page users_registration.php.

That will allow new people to register.

As to moving the records take a look at this


insert-select.html

there are loads of links on google on how to do this. depends on how many records you have. Might just be quicker to input my hand or export to say excell and then import.

I've not done it using mysql but it can be done.

cheers

Ian
