Importing or adapting users
« on: October 27, 2009, 01:39:05 pm »

Hi,
After being hacked I needed to reinstall Coppermine on a new server.
My previous installed Coppermine got more than 50 000 visitors, the new one has 0.
Is there a way to adapt or import the number of visitors ?

Copy the users table from the old gallery to the new.

You shouldn't have performed a fresh install, but instead you should have sanitized your hacked gallery as suggested in the Yikes thread. You can import user accounts if you have a database dump of your old gallery. A visitor as we understand it is not a user though: it's anyone who is visiting your pages, guest or registered. If you're refering to the same thing and want to restore the hit stats: this can be restored as well, but the hits are kept per file in your database. As you have a different file structure, you can't import the hit stats from a previous dump. That's one of the reasons why you shouln't have performed a fresh install. This being sais: the short answer to your question is "no". The long answer is "can be accomplished if you're ready to spend some time on it and if you have a backup of your old gallery both on file system level as well as on database level".
Please respect board rules in the future - you agreed to respect them when you signed up! In other words: post a link to your new gallery (and if that differs from your old gallery, post a link to your old gallery as well even if the link is down).
