Migrating Settings From CE4 Cart to Backlight

Backlight Cart provides a function to migrate all existing products, pricing, orders and other settings to Backlight. In order to migrate CE4 Cart settings, the ttg-be and backlight directories should reside at the same level of your site. Backlight must also have been set up, following our Installation & Setup guide.

It should be noted that migration will replace all Backlight Cart settings. As such, it is strongly recommended to migrate from CE4 Cart to Backlight before selling photos through Backlight Cart.

It is also recommended to migrate albums from CE4 to Backlight 2 before migrating CE4 settings.

An example setup would include these directories (amongst others):


To perform the migration:

  1. Login to the Backlight admin, at /backlight/
  2. Click on the Backlight then Cart menu
  3. Click on the link 'Migrate data from CE4 Cart'
  4. Optionally, confirm that you wish to also copy over CE4 Cart orders by selecting 'yes'
  5. Confirm that you are ready to migrate the CE4 Cart settings by selecting 'yes'.
  6. Click Continue

Migration is then performed as follows:

  1. The database files are copied over, and updates applied. Click on the continue link,

You should then find that all of your CE4 Cart settings (and orders, if selected) have been transferred to Backlight.
