    Hi,

    WP-Table Reloaded stores the tables as so-called "serialized strings" in the "wp_options" table, with names like "wp_table_reloaded_data_...".

    When moving servers, did you perform search/replace operations on the database content? Did you maybe replace the old URL with the new URL? If yes, that likely broke the tables.

    Do you still have access to the old server? Do the tables still work there? If yes, go to the "Plugin Options" screen of WP-Table Reloaded and export a "WP-Table Reloaded Dump File". This file contains all tables and settings and you can then re-import it on the new site to restore everything.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Hey the old site is broken. But I went into the database of the old site and exported the wp options file.

    Shoudl I Just import that into the new database to overwrite the wp options file there?

    Also - I did find the tables in the old database.

    Hi,

    you should only re-import those entries from the "wp_options" table that have names like "wp_table_reloaded_...".
