Migrating from one bbpress installation to another
Here’s the scenario, and I’ll try to be as specific and detailed as possible.
There are two different WP installations:
- The first (let’s call it myforum.com) just holds a bbpress forum install with thousands of members and posts.
- The second (let’s call it myblog.com) is an existing WP blog with thousands of existing posts&pages.
We want to create a fresh bbpress install on myblog.com/forum and want to import all of myforum.com’s bbpressdata. We’re getting rid of the myforum.com site after migration.
I am not a database guy however, and I have no idea how to export and import the forum posts as well as the users. I fear overwriting the existing posts, pages and users of myblog.com.
Is it as simple as importing tables from wordpress onto myblog.com? Will that overwrite what’s already there?
Appreciate any advice
