User import question (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I am very much a beginner at WP and the use of any sort of DB.

    I have "successfully" imported data from the user list from my old club site into the user table on my new club. An achievement for me!

    However, when a user goes to the new site and logs in using a user name and password from the old site the user is taken back to the old site? I do not understand have the new WP installation even knows the old one exists?

    Should I delete the imported users and use some sort of plug in to do this job?

    Both sites are WordPress and on the same server. The new site is in a sub-directory.

    Any words of wizdon appreciated.

    Ah sorry,

    I exported the user table of the old site as a csv file, and then imported the data to the user table of the new site.

    I did all this using the "my sql database" tool located within the server hosts control panel. I hope this makes sense?
