Moving the data directory of the store.

How would you move the data directory of a store from one directory to another?
Solution ID: S03485

Here's what you'd have to do:
1. Make a complete backup of your store.
2. Copy the data directory to the new location.
3. Edit the .aa file in the back office directory and change the "datadir" setting.
4. In the back office and shopping basket directories there is a symbolic link called .auth that points to the .auth file in the data directory. You need to recreate these symbolic links to point to the new data directory.

Replace every "" above with your actual store ID for this store.
