A few simple steps to install a Connection Bridge:
- Right after you click “Download” link, save the files to your local computer. They will be downloaded as zip files and you will have to extract them from the archive.
- Now, you have to connect your Source and Target Stores via FTP client e.g.Filezilla, FileFTP, CuteFTP, WinSCP, etc.
- If you don’t have FTP client installed yet you can set it up in a few simple steps. A detailed guidelines on how to do that you can find here.
- In case you don’t have FTP access details, you can get them by simply contacting your hosting provider or developer. If they can’t help you, please contact our Support Team.
- Note: For Wordpress (WooCommerce, Shopp, WP e-Commerce) or Joomla (AceShop, JooCart, VirtueMart, MijoShop) e-commerce plugins the "bridge2cart" folder should be uploaded to the root directory where your CMS (Wordpress/Joomla) is installed, not your e-commerce plugin directory.
- "bridge.php" - 644 or 666, depending on your server configuration;
- "/bridge2cart" folder - 755 or 777, depending on your server configuration.
- We strongly recommend to turn off redirect on your site for proper work of the Connection Bridge files. To check if you need to turn off redirect, follow this link "http://[yourstore url]/bridge2cart/bridge.php" and once it's redirecting to some other link you should disable redirects in your .htaccess file. It's a hidden file residing in your "shop" folder.
- In order to prevent accidental blocking of Cart2Cart IPs, it is recommended to add them to your white list. Find more info how to that here.
