How to move products and attributes to a clean installation
I have a TB installation that’s a migration from PS. Unfortunately, I think I’ve messed up quite a bit of the database. I’d like to save some bits and start with a clean TB installation.
The only things I’d really like to save are:
- Product descriptions in two languages
- Product attributes and their prices and weight, etc.
Is there anyway to do this?
I did the same thing and now I’m getting help from my host. Did all the groundwork I possibly could, following @wakabayashi YouTube video tutorial and Michael Dekker’s reminder in this post:
Thanks, but I don’t want an exact duplicate. That would give me the same messed up database. I’d like to start with a clean database and just transfer the products.
Was able to do it with this module: https://forum.thirtybees.com/topic/423/store-manager-for-prestashop-v-2-29-1
I exported the products and imported them.
@30knees How did you do that with store manager? Doesn’t it just backup the full ftp-directory and SQL?
I followed the instructions here:

You first need to input the attributes manually in the new store, so eg Color (red, blue, green). I also entered the categories manually. But after that you can export all the products from the old store and then import them into the new store.
Make sure the tax settings are the same, too, if you import with prices.
Oki, thank you. Good to know, do also use store manager
I have used this addon to import all products, attributes and cart/catalog rules to thirtybees.
You can also import customers and orders. Works fine.
