Operating the Module

The following groups of options are available:

If you do not have any available database connection, you can backup your X-Cart database using X-Cart admin interface and restore the backup file using the "DB Backup/Restore" menu. After that, use this dialog to import data from the local database.

X-Cart database version: select 'Version 3.x' or 'Version 4.x' depending on which you have installed.

Import options: select corresponding check boxes if you want to import products and categories as well as users.

Specify the necessary options and click 'Import'. The data you have selected will be imported into your LiteCommerce store.

The following issues can arise during the import and corresponding warnings will be displayed.

1. Login is incorrect.


2. Access to the database denied.
