I have some extensions installed and developed in my Magento store. I see their settings in /app/etc/modules files, but i would like to export one of them so i could implement it on other website. Is it possible to export module/extension from Magento?

To copy a module from on server to another all you need to do is copy over the files, see Magento - Wiki - Magento folder structure for location of the files

There are "no real" module custom setting in app/etc/modules/Example_Module.xml, this mainly enable, disable and set the code pool for your module. See Magento - Wiki - Customize Parts Of Magento Configuration

Your module custom config (if any) are normally define in system.xml in your module etc folder, which is accessible from magento admin -> system -> config -> your module tab. This data is store in core_config_data table in your database.

  • Thank you! It seems like the problem solved - i've successfully transfered module from one website to another. But, in my case i run into the problem: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in /app/code/local/Modules/ModuleName/sql/Setup/upgrade-0.2.11-0.2.12.php on line 32 Seems like it's PHP fault, will investigate further. If you have any ideas on that, would be glad to hear!

  • Without seeing the content of upgrade-0.2.11-0.2.12.php then it hard to say why your getting that error Commented Feb 18, 2015 at 16:38
  • Sure, could we discuss it in private? Wouldn't like to share the internals, not sure how secure it is
