Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Contact Form 7 Blank after migrate

  • Hello

    I was wondering if you could point us in the right direction. We are launching around 4 WordPress sites each week and most of them use Contact Form 7. On migrating these sites to live, it is quite common for the Contact Form 7 Data to be blank and we have to re-enter this information in. We do not have any other issues with migrating.

    Thanks,

    Richard.

    Can you please supply a link to screenshots) which show this problem.

    Thank you for your reply. It is quite hard to screenshot but I can describe in further detail. If this does not help then I will screenshot on the next project.

    We usually create on average 2-3 forms:
    The forms are listed perfectly.
    The HTML in the first tab for each contact form is there.
    The email template tab, To, From, Subject, Addition Headers and Body are missing.

    I will also run you through our process for going live, all done via SSH, always hosted by ourselves and the same process every time. We also use the same versions of MariaDB on both servers.

    Rsync the files from dev server to live server
    MySQL Dump on dev server using mysqldump
    Search/replace url and document root in sql file using nano
    Import SQL file to live server using mysql command
    Edit wp-config file on live server to reflect new settings with nano
    Login to admin, reset permalinks, check forms, test site

    Thanks,

    Richard

    This could be the source of your migration problems.

    Have you checked the changes made to the CF7 database entries by this step?
