Support » Fixing WordPress » Import b2evo 1.10.2 to WordPress 2.3

  • Hi there,

    after my webspace crashed some weeks ago, I decided to continue my blog with WordPress instead of b2evolution when I set it up new. All b2evo files (actually all files on the webspace) got erased

    What I now have are two databases and a WordPress 2.3 installation. In the first database there is still the content of my former b2evolution 1.10.2 blog, the second one is occupied by WordPress. Since Im quite afraid of installing b2evo again in the same dir as WP and in its old database (which would possibly enable a kind of workaround-import) cause of the chance of severely messing something up. My programming skills are limited and so is my knowledge about all these installscripts and databases – Im quite glad Im able to screw around with PHP a bit in terms of editing skins/themes.

    However, Id really like to get at least my old entries and titles from the b2evo blog moved to WordPress (I dont need categories, tags etc, Id be fine with just archiving them there), but I couldnt find any solution or importing script so far.

    Well, and this is why I created this entry: Could anyone aid me in this matter or does someone have a importer b2evo 1.10.2 > WordPress 2.3?

    I thank you in advance for your support!

  • I already tried that. I even managed to import the b2e tables into the SQL database where WP is running. But when I run the import script offered under your link it wont work. I get errors like this

    WordPress database error: [Table ‘usr_web396_2.wp_categories’ doesn’t exist]

    I guess this might be due to the fact that with b2evo 1.10.2 (the last stable release before b2evo changed to 2.0) and WP 2.3 the table structure of both got changed (afair) – and ideed there is no wp_categories table (anymore) for example
