osCommerce Migration problem
Hiya,
Totally new DH and more-or-less blind to PHP, MySQL and CMS but i'm a super quick learner...i've just made the mistake of bombarding myself with all the solutions Google presented to me at the same time and pretty much rendered the site i'm migrating from one persons account to another, useless.

So the first thing is migrating MySQL databases, is that a fairly easy thing to do?? The OLD account is a dreamhost account too but (currently) don't have access to it. In order to migrate this database over will i need access to the account?

Thereafter, will i need to have an existing database on the NEW DH account and simply import the OLD database over via phpMyAdmin?

The next thing is...i uploaded all the files via FTP to the NEW DH account successfully and it worked fine (bar the fact that the entire website was still functioning off the old DH account and URL) then - stupidly - i changed the PHP version in the control panel from 4 to 5.x and now i get:

Server Requirement Error: register_globals is disabled in your PHP configuration. This can be enabled in your php.ini configuration file or in the .htaccess file in your catalog directory.

Haven't got a scooby (clue) how to change or even where to find the php.ini file (as far as i'm aware that's on the server itself so i wouldn't have access to it anyway) and where the .htaccess file would be as there isn't a Catalog folder within the osCommerce root folder. There are loads scattered within other folders like admin and include but i don't think those would work.

This was meant to be a simple site migration...but i think i've bitten off more than i can feasibly chew at the moment Undecided

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
