The setting I had to change were in the WPEC…none of my Store settings etc are there. Currency, shipping, payment etc etc… All blank! Very strange
Since messaging you yesterday, I have discovered that you can import and export the actual Theme settings. So I have done that and sorted permalinks etc however…all is not well. My widgets are not there and I had to delete some pages and also there now appears to be two ‘Home’ Pages…one of which should come under ‘Blog’. Half of my photos on the homepage are missing. :-(
This is putting me setting up the new test site if I am going to have to make loads of changes again once move it. Shouldn’t I have been able to have an exact carbon copy of my website and settings once importing everything? Not even any of my plugins or theme were activated. :-(
As @TheDoc said, all your information should have been stored in the database from exporting to importing. When I moved WordPress, I uploaded a fresh install, changed the config file to match my old database and then imported the database through PHPMyAdmin. From there I changed all the URL’s which you can do via a plugin that Gray might be able to post here. I always forget the name.
Hi, I’m new to wp and have been building a site in localhost and now I’m trying to move it to a /dev site for user to upload content before the website goes live.
I’ve exported the mysql database as explained on this discussion from PHPMyAdmin and all went well. But when I went to the host and tried importing it from the application on that side, it threw an error. Can anyone help with this?
@euge So you exported your database from the local version, installed WordPress on the live version, imported the database, changed all necessary URL’s using the plugin above and you received that error?
Hi, I ended up solving this. Thanks for your help.
I was trying to import the database with a copy of wordpress already installed.
After a while I figured out I had to import it before I installed the wordpress files.
