I have created an New category called Mobile(ID : 646).

I already have another category Mobile cover(ID : 516).

So i need to move all Mobile cover under Mobile category

Mobile is root category and Mobile cover is sub category

How i can move Programatically


For example create a file named test.php with the below content and place it in magento root folder. Then run your site www.yoursite.com/test.php

$mobile_id = 646;
$mobile_cover_id = 516;
$category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($mobile_cover_id);
$category->move($mobile_id, null);

Its working for me.
