Magento Import Catalog Products A Horror Story

Posted by Damodar Bashyal on January 06, 2012


It's been so many days i have been spending my time trying to figure out how to import products using CSV in Magento.

I recommended client to go for better server and as a result we moved to VPS. But that didn't help. Hosting company was so generous to work along with me to figure out what was actually wrong. They also spent many hours and haven't charged for VPS yet and I am free to use the server as I need. But I am not that good in server settings, but learnt a lot along the way :)

ini_set('memory_limit', '128M');

Magento e-Commerce Few Tips, Tricks, Codes and Options

Posted by Damodar Bashyal on September 27, 2009


I am an e-commerce web developer. I used to use oscommerce to develop ecommerce websites but I recently started using magento.  From time to time magento really gives a hard time but I love finding the solution. I am also planning to do certification in magento, so I can call myself Magento Certified Web Developer.

When I was working with oscommerce I never documented any tips & tricks because I really didn't need it as it was so simple and easy. But as soon as I started Magento ecommerce development, I started struggling. So, I started to note down helpful tips, shortcuts and tricks. As I was just writing and emailing myself, I thought I should start writing on the blog. Now I have a blog for magento tips and tricks.
