    @mmaumio

    I’d like to import my bbpress forum(with user, topics and replies) from one site to another.
    Is it possible?
    Both domain are in the same server. So, I see the database is same for both domain on the server.

    http://codex.bbpress.org/import-forums/

    I’m not very clear about that. And It doesn’t work for me as well.
    Can anyone help me ASAP.
    I’m in A SERIOUS trouble.
    Please.

  • As per the link you mention above http://codex.bbpress.org/import-forums/

    You should be able to import with these settings:

    - Select the source platform that you are importing from: bbPress
    - Database Name eg. old_bbpress_db
    - Database User Name eg. db_user
    - Database User Password eg. ********
    - Table Prefix eg. bb_

    Thanks a lot for help Stephen,
    I’ve few more concerns:
    My main domain is example1.com
    and I’ve another domain on the same server example2.com
    I’ve the database for example.com
    How do I get access on the example2.com’s database.
    when I log into the phpmyadmin I see the database of example1.com which has all the table/fields of the bbpress.

    How to get the user and password of the example1.com’s databse?
    I want to import the wishlist from example1.com to example2.com both domains are on the same server.
    I’m sorry If i sound silly.
    Thank you again.
    Hope I was clear enough.
    Looking forward to your reply.
    Take Care.

    Lets step back a step or two for a moment…

    What version of bbPress are you trying to import?

    If you are just trying to copy/move forums/topics/replies from a bbPress 2.2.3 install eg site1.com to a bbPress 2.2.3 install on site2.com you can ‘export’ these via WordPress’ built-in tools (/wp-admin/export.php) and then import to site2.com using the Import (/wp-admin/import.php) tool.

    If you are importing from bbPress ‘Stand Alone’ 1.1 or 1.2 you should look for a file named ‘bb-config.php’ and that will contain the correct info you need to import with the bbPress Forum Import tool.

    eg.

    // ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for bbPress */
    define( 'BBDB_NAME', 'my_database_name' );

    /** MySQL database username */
    define( 'BBDB_USER', 'my_database_username' );

    /** MySQL database password */
    define( 'BBDB_PASSWORD', '1234567890' );

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define( 'BBDB_HOST', 'localhost' );

    And a little further down in that file is the bbPress table prefix
    $bb_table_prefix = 'bb_';

    They are the values you would use in the bbPress Import Tool setting.

    It was GREAT Stephen,
    Thanks.
    I’m using bbpress Version 2.2.2 .
    Is there any difference on the procedure of exporting/importing the entire forum than the 2.2.3 version?

    So, I need the wp-admin for the site1.com and site2.com.
    Right?
    I’ve the login for site2.com now. If I need to manage the site2.com’s then let me know.
    I’ve to export bbpress from the site1.com and import to the site2.com as I’m wanting to import the site1.com’s forum to site2.com ?
    Is that all I’ve to do?

    Thank You Stephen!

    I wish you all the very best for your future life for extending the helping hand.
    Take Care.

    Hi there, im moving from bbpress1.1 to bbpress 2.3, into a wordpress multisite environment.
    I already import all data, i can see it in mysql.
    Also, i can see the topics in the site admin dashboard (Topics->All Topics).
    The issue is that i cant see the actual topic/post, if i click on view | edit, it always send me to a 404 error page.

    How do I debug this?

    Best regards
    mogu
