[NextGen Gallery] Can't move SQL table data! No titles / descriptions importing (3 posts)

    I'm moving our site to a new server. So I FTP transferred the plugin and /gallery folders to the new server. Then I exported the 3 wp_ngg tables and imported them on the new server. This has failed miserably... No titles or descriptions moved. No tags got imported correctly. However, for some reason SOME of the tags imported into the alt/title box. huh???

    NG didn't recognize my FTP galleries, so I had to import them from "Import Image Folder" option.

    I've been pulling my hair out for hours and hours, combing all the forums. I followed the tuts for PHPMyAdmin export/import... my files look like the sceenshots. The DB confirms SQL imported successfully. What am I missing??

    Even assuming the data did import successfully, my other issue is this: Is there no way at all to export/import the TAGS I added manually in NextGen's interface? There are no keywords in the files' meta-data for me to scan. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hopefully someone has an answer.

    Your post scared me. I've been looking to leave my Host GoDaddy. So sick of all their problems, not to mention the things they've screwed up with my server.

    My site has a massive amount of pictures and would like the move to be hassle free.

    Wish I had an answer but I feel this is worth the continued discussion.

    Good luck.
