Support » Fixing WordPress » Importing existing WP entries

  • All,
    I have an interesting problem on my hands. One of my friends is installed a fresh copy of WP on her server (Server A). On this fresh copy, she has some very old greymatter blog entries all imported nicely into that WP install and it’s going pretty smoothly (Entries A).
    The problem is that on my server (Server B) she already has an existing WP install with her newest entries and such (Entries B).
    Is there a way to import her newest entries on my server into the install she has on her new server without adding it as a secondary blog? Using the descriptions above, we need this to occur:
    Entries B on Server B need to be directly imported into Server A so that Entries A show up on her blog along with Entries B.
    I looked at the SQL dump of her content on my server and there’s sql commands in there to delete any existing tables which would be a bad thing as we do not want to delete any existing data. Just add to it.
    Any help would be most appreciated on this issue.

  • What you need is to insert the old posts into the new, or viceversa using some INSERT statements. Of course there should not be comflicts regarding the post ids and such. If there are only a few new posts, why dont you try to use the import-rss.php script to import the few new entries into the other blog? By setting the number of entries to show in the feed to a high enough value, you should get one rss file with all the entries, and then just run the importer.
