A few simple steps to install a Connection Bridge:

  1. 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.
  2. Now, you have to connect your Source and Target Stores via FTP client e.g.Filezilla, FileFTP, CuteFTP, WinSCP, etc.
  3. Upload "bridge2cart" folder from the archive to your store root directory. Simply copy the “bridge2cart” folder extracted from the Connection Bridge files and paste it into your Source or Target Store accordingly. Folder "bridge2cart" includes file index.php which doesn’t allow Google to index a folder "bridge2cart".
  4. You can check if the Connection Bridge files have been installed correctly. To do that enter http://[yourstore url]/bridge2cart/bridge.php within your browser address line. If the message “BRIDGE_INSTALLED” appears, it means the bridge files are working correctly. Otherwise set the permissions as following:
  5. If you face some troubles while setting the permissions, please contact our Support Team.
  6. To be able to copy images during your migration please check the writing permissions on your Target store for image directory and ALL subfolders/files it contains (chmod 777).
