The challenges were pretty straight forward on this project. I need to take what I would have considered to be an “ugly” website that was was built on volusion which is a hosted eCommerce solution that costs A LOT in monthly fees. But my client didn’t want to go through having to load all of the products and images while moving to OpenCart which is a PHP self hosted open source shopping cart solution.
Making the site look professional wasn’t a big deal I mean look what we came up with. The issue was taking the database at volusion and sanitizing it to be put into the new Opencart database. Then moving the entire images directory and mapping it correctly to display for each of the product. I was able to accomplish all of this without too much problem and got the site done in record time for a January 1st launch!
