Hello guys, is there a way to backup simplepress on one domain and move its contents to another domain?
I have simplepress on a wp site, but now I want the forum with its content on another site. I dont want to move the whole site to this new site, just the forum.
Anyway I can do this.
well, that is not really possible. Remember the forum is just a plugin for WordPress. As such, we require much of the data from the WordPress site such as users, usermeta, page the forum is on, etc... moving just the forum is not really practical...
You could copy the entire site including the forum, and then delete the "site" stuff. You of course would have to leave all the users as is, but it should work. It's fairly easy to delete pages and posts, so unless you have hundreds or thousands of pages and post, I'd think you could do it.
I move sites all the time from one domain to another, although I've never then deleted the pages/posts I can't think of a reason it wouldn't work.
You'd have to do a serialized find and replace on the url. I use searchandreplacedb2.php to do this.
