Upgrade/conversion process from pagelines to DMS


Best Answer Danny , 30 April 2014 - 12:50 PM

HI,

 

You can follow the instructions on our documentation - http://docs.pageline...ading-migration

 

Please take into consideration that this isn't an upgrade, it is a migration, as PageLines Framework and DMS are two completely separate products. Also, before proceeding, be sure to perform a backup.

Is there a documented process for converting a pagelines 2.4.4 site to DMS?

. On that linked page, there's a mention of DMS Toolbar → Global Options ↠ Advanced → Framework V2 Upgrade. However that option doesn't seem to exist - in fact, the 'Global Options' item doesn't exist on the toolbar. I thought it would be represented by the spanner icon. 'Site Settings' has an 'Advanced' section, but no 'Framework V2 Upgrade' option.

Unfortunately, that upgrade option was only available for a short time during DMS's initial release. The upgrade option is no longer available.

 

Therefore, you will need to migrate. In my opinion, the best course of action would be for you to use an application such as MAMP if you're a Mac user or XAMPP if you're a windows user, what these applications do is basically turn your computer into a local server. There you can install WordPress and DMS and then recreate your website locally using DMS functionality and sections. Whilst keeping your site powered by PageLines Framework live.

 

Once you have completed your site locally using DMS, export all your posts/pages using the built-in WordPress import/export tools and use the DMS import/export options. Then on your live site, install DMS, make sure it is the active theme and then import your DMS theme settings and WordPress posts/pages (if required).

 

As always, perform a backup before proceeding with the migration.

. By the way, could you look into something for me? I don't have access to the DMS forum, even though I have purchased a license. I tried contacting support through the account section, but that was hours ago and I still don't have a reply.
