Setup Database Connection
In order to start working with a specific store (add products, view orders, etc) you need to setup store connection. It can be done in Preferences Window, which appears automatically on the first start-up and can be accessed later through Tools -> Preferences (F12 shortcut).
- First of all you should create Store Configuration. Preferences window allows you to create, edit or delete your store configuration (connection settings).
- Setup database connection. Database installed with Store Manager is a kind of temporary database created locally for different purposes. It can be used for testing Store Manager functionality or to work with your store using PHP MySQL Bridge connection. If you use free demo version and you just want to run software to see how it works, please use embedded configuration with default database. Working with local (Embedded) database using Bridge connection is much faster than working with remote one. You can use your local database to store your remote database inside it, make changes and then just synchronize it - make changes locally and then upload them to the website database.
- Setup FTP connection
In order to be able to manage, view or upload images using Store Manager you should configure FTP connection.
In case you need assistance with connection configuration, please e-mail us and we'll set up everything for you free of charge - firstname.lastname@example.org
Now all is done, you can use Store Manager with your live site. Do not forget to make database before each mass operation.
