I need to move my estore and affiliate software to new domain. Do I need to buy another license to do this? We are moving our whole site and will be taking the other site down.
Is there a way to export the products and import so that I don’t have to totally rebuild.
import affiliates and affiliate creatives?

Hell yeah (just kidding
No you don’t need to buy another license. You can use the eStore and affiliate plugin on as many sites as you own and operate.
You simply export all your WordPress database content (including the tables created by these plugins) like you would do for your blog posts and comments and stuff then import it on the other site. PHPMyAdmin, accessible from your cPanel can come in really handy for this.March 2, 2011 at 3:42 pm #29719bizsuccesscoachMember

Hi don’t seem to have PHP Admin in my hosting account.
I made the mistake of creating a folder in file manager and installing wordpress there. So now in order to get to my site a customer would have to type the directory after my site .com.
I just want to set it up so my url works without extra characters after itMay 28, 2012 at 6:00 am #29721tomlMember
I found something very usefull I hope in WordPress Codex. My concern is these instructions are just plain wp not wp + eStore. Will eStore plugin and my 126 products make this not work completely?
Below pasted from WP Codex
Using a pre-existing subdirectory install
If you already have WordPress installed in its own folder (i.e. http://example.com/wordpress) then the steps are as follows:
1.Go to the General panel.
2.In the box for Site address (URL): change the address to the root directory’s URL. Example: http://example.com
3.Click Save Changes. (Do not worry about the error message and do not try to see your blog at this point! You will probably get a message about file not found.)
4.Copy (NOT MOVE!) the index.php and .htaccess files from the WordPress directory into the root directory of your site (Blog address). The .htaccess file is invisible, so you may have to set your FTP client to show hidden files. If you are not using pretty permalinks, then you may not have a .htaccess file. If you are running WordPress on a Windows (IIS) server and are using pretty permalinks, you’ll have a web.config rather than a .htaccess file in your WordPress directory. As stated above, copy (don’t move) the index.php file to your root directory, but MOVE (DON’T COPY) the web.config file to your root directory.
5.Open your root directory’s index.php file in a text editor
6.Change the following and save the file. Change the line that says:
to the following, using your directory name for the WordPress core files:
7.Login to your site. It should still be http://example.com/wordpress/wp-admin/
8.If you have set up Permalinks, go to the Permalinks panel and update your Permalink structure. WordPress will automatically update your .htaccess file if it has the appropriate file permissions. If WordPress can’t write to your .htaccess file, it will display the new rewrite rules to you, which you should manually copy into your .htaccess file (in the same directory as the main index.php file.)May 28, 2012 at 1:14 pm #29722wzpModerator
Is the object to “catch” requests that use your domain.com and redirect them to yourdomain.com/blog (what you just posted directions for) or to physically move your WordPress setup from a subdirectory, back into the root directory?
