Migrate Users and Content Only

Post by HrlyKrs » Fri Feb 01, 2008 7:03 pm

is there a way to migrate the users?  i tried to export my jos_users table from my 1.0 DB, and import to my 1.5 DB.  phpMyAdmin imported everything, but i don't see the users under "user management" in joomla.

My next step will be to just import the old articles people have posted.

To move the users you will need to have a look at the following tables.
"jos_comprofiler" is if you are using Community Builder.
If you are using Community Builder have a look here:
http://extensions.joomla.org/component/ ... Itemid,35/

Code: Select all




If you have a quick look inside these with phpadmin and you can see what is needed.

I'm not sure if any table field names have been changed.
My next step will be to just import the old articles people have posted.
There is a link in my signature.  :)
