I recently set up a Connections directory on our organization’s intranet. It is working well (thank you for this nice plug-in!).
Now that I am familiar with how Connections works, I would like to place the same directory on our organization’s website.
I tried copying the plugin folder and the connections images and templates folders to the website, in the appropriate locations on the server. I then activated the plugin from WP admin panel…but none of the entries’ text or images appeared when I went into the Manage part of the Connections admin.
Is there another step that I need to do? Some tool I need to use to import the whole package?
Or is this not possible, and will I need to install the plugin and enter the whole directory from scratch?
The only way to migrate entries are to export the Connections tables from phpMyAdmin or similar tool as a SQL file and then import the exported SQL into your new site using phpMyAdmin or similar tool. I’ve done it plenty of times, only takes a few minutes.
Oh, one last thing, if you’ve uploaded any images, you have to copy them via FTP and load them up on the new site via FTP in this folder:
Just install the plugins any add-ons and templates as you normally world.
NOTE: Make sure you do the SQL import before activating Connections for the first time. If you’ve already activated Connections, you have to drop the Connections tables before you do the import.
Hope that helps.
