Porting users/comments
« on: September 05, 2005, 01:15:31 am »

Hi, I just installed the latest version of coppermine to a new subdomain on my site, I was wondering if there was a way to port the userlist and the comments?

users and comments exist in your database, so the subdomain doesn't really matter. If your question is: "how can I move my gallery from one subdomain to another?", then the answer is easy: move all of your files (download them to your client, then upload them to the new subdomain), go to coppermine's config and change "target for ecards" and you're done.

upgrading doesn't touch the users and comments table, how are they suppossed to be related? If you did a fresh install (instead of upgrading as suggested in the docs) and you want your users and comments back, you'll have to make a dump of the old coppermine's mySQL tables and restore the dump on the new table. Not sure what else to recommend, generically speaking. For details, post a link to your old site and your new one, together with db details (db names, table prefixes etc.). Don't post security related data though (no passwords or similar).

well, as suggested before: a fresh install of course doesn't have the users and other stuff from your old page. Do as suggested and perform an upgrade instead of a fresh install, then do some cleaning up.
