Exporting website (wp + platformpro)

Recommended Posts

studentkrubb

Hello, I'm trying to export my wp + platformpro work to another domain. The domain I am exporting from is: http://svenskpotatis.org'>http://svenskpotatis.org and the target is http://modern.studentkrubb.se'>http://modern.studentkrubb.se What I have done so far is to export the wp file through tools > export/import as well as imported the platformpro file as well as custom codes. However the websites look entirely different and the targeted site lacks alot of data. Here is the provided links again: http://svenskpotatis.org'>http://svenskpotatis.org > http://modern.studentkrubb.se'>http://modern.studentkrubb.se What have I missed? Thanks in advance! /Joakim

Did you copy any changes made in functions.php, or any templates? Did you make sure that your database is looking in all fields to the correct URL. I've found that export/import usually just results in a transfer of the data, and doesn't actually change URLs. Use phpMyAdmin to read through some of the links in your database and I'm sure you'll find your new database is pointing to the old URLs.

Also, you have both PlatformPro and PlatformBase installed with platformbase activated?

I have not copied any changes made in the functions.php. To be honest everything database related is new to me, I will download phpmyadmin and investigate further. What is it that I should be looking for and replace inside the mysql? I have both platform program installed and the base mode activated. Thank you for your help!

One thing I learned the hard way ... before you import the XML file at the new site, make sure you've installed PP and PP Base. Otherwise all the content related to PP features like boxes and special post types won't be imported.

Have you seen the instructions here under Moving to a New Server: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress You also might need to go into PlatformPro Settings and hit "save" to regenerate the CSS file that applies style changes.
