Importing Site to original URL

Recommended Posts


I exported a site from www.gosober.org and put it on www.thomashoben.com to upgrade it to pagelines.  Now that we are done I am trying to move it back to www.gosober.org


I installed pagelines and when I try to import the wordpress file I get "media and pages already exist" alerts and when I click "have fun"  the site looks similar to the new site but none of the new content is there (because the pages are still named the same). None of the new menus & sidebar menus are there.


What should I do to get the files to overwrite the old ones?

I recommend you first of all do a backup and then remove all the posts and pages, then import both the PageLines theme settings and the import the Wordpress content. Wordpress menu can no be imported as far as Im aware.


You could try this plugin, but it is untested - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/menu-exporter/


Remember perform a backup, before removing/deleting any content.

      Is there a repository somewhere in a WordPress installation (the database?) for all of the section info/data created in a DMS2-based WordPress installation? In other words, if one wanted to replicate on a new DMS2-based site the entire collection of sections including exact preferences that were set up for an existing DMS2-based site, is it possible to just copy the file with those details into the new site's database? (I'm not talking about any LISS/CSS entries, which I am sure could be cut and pasted from the existing to the new, as-is.)
      Thank you.

      I'm migrating a client's dev site (http://haco4.convertwith.me) hosted on Hostgator to their soon-to-be live site (http://haco.us.com) on Media Temple DV. 
      The problem I'm having is that the file I'm importing into the new site (using DMS's import config utility) brings everything over EXCEPT the page templates. I thought it might be because the export config file didn't have them in it but after checking it I can see they're there. (here is a copy on Google Drive: http://goo.gl/srGrjF). 
      I can't figure this out... can someone help me? I need this site to go live this weekend so any help would be greatly appreciated!!
