Gigs Calendar
Exporting and Importing problem (3 posts)

    hello, I just changed servers and moved my whole site, exported and imported all the tables, activated the plugin and there's no information in it... the venues, the archive... the gigs... all is empty...

    Does this mean I've lost all my information on gigs???
    The wordpress export doesn't export these tables? I was on WP3.0 before... I'm terrible sad about this, because I had lots of information there...

    Anyone knows if the info could be somewhere hidden?

    I am having the same problem. Also, my media library is empty. I have copied over my database, updated the URLs, copied the wp-admin, wp-content, and wp-includes folders to my new server. What am I missing?

    I saw that each plugin creates a new table in the database, unfortunately wp plugin of importing/exporting doesn't have us covered in this plugins trouble issues.

    The way I solved it was: directly entering to my hosting dashboard panel, opening the phpMyAdmin or the MySQL options to manage the databases, once you find where aaaaallll the wp_tables are stored (wp_comments/wp_gigs/wp_users/etc), just then, you make the export (Directly from the MySQL or phpMyAdmin) you'll get a .sql file (double check for utf-8)

    In your new host: you have to enter to phpMyAdmin and directly import the whole .sql file you just exported. (double check for the upload limit some hosting has) (double check for utf-8)

    With this method you have saved all the information of every existing plugin, your configuration, your passwords, your users, your media library info, everything as you have it installed in your prev host. Even if you created a new password in the new install, it will be overrided by the .sql import which is good (y).

    Good luck!
