Your Connections plugin worked fine for so many months. Now I had to move my site to another provider – and it doesen’t work at all. I had to update to the latest version.
Is it somehow possible to import the data that I had already added? I had categories, and the address fields. I managed to import the Files to the database. But when I edit a file, it doesen’t show the address any more (in the edit mode). The lines are empty.
I also had about 12 Categories, that where sorted by zip-code.
That doesn’t seem to work any more either. I can’t remember all the changes and entries I made in the dashboard. Is there a way to upload any files from the old version of Connections or do I have to make all the entries new?
If possible, I would like to use the old version, cause it worked fine.
I have the latest php-version and WordPress 4.0.
Thank you for your help.

I guess my first question is what tool/plugin did you use to migrate the database from the older server to the new? I ask because it sounds as if not all the tables in the database that Connections creates and stores its data was imported to the new database.10/17/2014 at 11:55 am #307435
I just used the php myadmin to export as sql.
and imported the same way. The fatal error occured after changing the provider, who as an upgraded version of php.
the tables the new connections uses are different from the old one. I altered one to at least import the data. that worked.
in the database I can see: all entries are there.
does your “old” version work with latest php version? Then I might try again and import just the connection data.
thanks for your help
there is the link to the front page and what it looks like.
On top there used to be the Categories as dropdown menue.10/17/2014 at 3:16 pm #307449
re: the tables the new connections uses are different from the old one. I altered one to at least import the data. that worked.
YOu say you altered one table … why not alter all the table names to match the new prefix? That sounds like it would fix the issue.

re: Then I might try again and import just the connection data.
I suggest doing an export from the source DB of only the Connections db tables. Make sure you select every one of them. Do not miss any.
Drop the existing tables in the destination db and then do the image.
Then, if needed, make sure the imported table prefix is changed to match the new WP table prefix in the destination db.
Hope that helps!10/17/2014 at 3:54 pm #307451
I exported the connection-files of the old database, deleted all connection-files in the new database and imported.
then I uploaded the old connections plugin into the right place in WP.
That is the error I get:
Fatal error: Call-time pass-by-reference has been removed in /var/www/vhosts/gervas.org/httpdocs/blog/wp-content/plugins/connections/includes/class.terms.php on line 290
I haven’t a clue of php… Maybe you know, what to fix or alter…
Thank you for your time!

What is the old number?
You should be able to use the latest version of Connections with the old data just fine. That’s what I would recommend.
