For many nopCommerce developers, part of the deployment life cycle is the migration of their customized nopCommerce instance from their local development environment to their “live” hosting environment. That segment of the software life cycle can vary greatly according to environment; today, we’ll cover how to migrate a development copy of nopCommerce to your Arvixe hosting account.
First of all, we’re going to go with certain pre-requisites; the first pre-requisite is that you’re using SQL Server for your database, and the second is that you’re using Visual Studio as your development environment. If you’re not using Visual Studio, there will be some differences, based on your localhost setup, but that’s outside the scope of today’s article.Learn More

mojoPortal site upgrades are usually very smooth and straightforward. However, if it’s been a while since the last site upgrade, or there’s customization to the site, it’s really a good idea to have a synchronized version of the site on your local workstation to test upgrades or changes.
We’ll go with the pre-conditions that you have the local files for your mojoPortal implementation, including any customization, that you’re working in Visual Studio, and that you went with the default SQL Server back end.
Log into your hosting provider admin; depending on whether you have cPanel, Plesk, or other system, your route to the backup manager will vary. Once you’ve determined where your database backup is managed from, make a backup of your live database. Download your backup to your computer, and use the SQL Server Management Studio to restore it locally.Learn More

There are times when testing custom features or skins on a mojoPortal implementation that the Cassini web server built into Visual Studio 2010 isn’t quite up to the task, or doesn’t reveal a problem that only manifests in a hosting environment. One great (and free!) way to even the odds is to utilize IIS Express 7.5 as your testing web server.
By default, whenever you run your mojoPortal instance in Visual Studio 2010, it will use the internal web server (Cassini). It’s actually amazingly simple to switch over to using IIS Server Express 7.5 as your development web server – just follow these steps.
1) Download IIS 7.5 Express here.Learn More
