PROBLEM: Attributes Do Not Display After Moving to New Server
I have installed magento on a test site for a client. Imagine that I installed it on a server - widgetsxyz.com but NOW I need to quickly move the site to a new domain name - blueblandwidgets.com. This is a store that has configruable products - drop down menus and all.
I backed up data from old site. Uploaded files. Set Permissions. Imported SQL data. But attributes are not visible in magento even though they are inside of phpmyadmin.
How can you move magento from old site to a new site and get the attributes - to show up in a new installation of Magento?
please post the issue abit clearly as far as possbile with the error so that we can pull over the issue promptly
first step: backup the sql of old server with check the bock called maitain intergity constant.
and move the files to new server as the same database.
and change in local.xml file with the new server configuration ..change the permission of the files var, and other files.
I don’t get an error at all. Everything works perfectly fine. I changed everything. Backed up the database, loaded it in via sql. I can see all of my attributes and attribute sets inside of phpmyadmin.
But when I go into the admin of magento and look at the attributes; it doesn’t list my attributes from database. It only lists magento default attributes.
