Help with OpenCart - New Theme
I have been thinking about using a new theme. I am a little scared to do that because my site is very close to being done. What happens if I load a new theme. What about all the work I put in. Do I need to do everything all over again?
Before you start experimenting with a new theme, simply make a FULL backup of your database and all of the files on your server. That way, you can always revert BACK to the way things were BEFORE you applied any changes. Here's a few links on making backups through the Cpanel:
Backup the Website
Backing up your Database
Make sure that you make a backup of BOTH the website files and database files. We generally provide backups on the server as well, but I would not depend on them for this purpose. You should also make backups aside from the backups that are only supposed to be used in case of emergency.
Hope this helps!
