Support » Fixing WordPress » Nucleus to wordpress converter here

  • Hey everyone, I am deciding to switch over to wordpress after running Nucleus for serveral months. I am currently in the process of testing out wordpress.

    I will try to use the import-nucleus script that is available. Now my question is, the script assumes that wordpress database is the same as the nucleus database. If I run the import script, will it mess up my sql database that is currently running my site?

    I want to transfer everything over to WordPress smoothly, and then change the URL to the wordpress folder and remove nucleus. But in the meantime, I don’t want Nucleus to mess up and lose all my data.

  • When doing something like that, it’s important to make a backup. In fact, it’s important to make backups regularly.

    if I simply setup wordpress to use the same database as Nucleus, but don’t make any posts, will that mess up the database?

    I never used nucleus… but in order to run any import script – you need WP to be installed first. You can install it in the same database but I think the table prefixes should be different! I don’t think WP will use the same tables as Nucleus, in that case you wouldn’t need an import 🙂 – it would be the same script.

    awesome! that’s what I wanted to hear Moshu. I was afraid that installing wordpress in the same SQL db as Nucleus would screw up my current site.

    Now is it possible for me to run the import scripts to transfer Nucleus to WordPress, without ruining anything in Nucleus?

    Nucleus is where my index.php points to. If WP can transfer everything successfully, then I will point the index file to the wordpress directory.

    I am using the script that is available on the net to transfer Nucleus blogs to WP….these are the parameters I am unsure of

    if (strstr($s,’host’)) echo “localhost”;
    if (strstr($s,’username’)) echo “root”;
    if (strstr($s,’wpprefix’)) echo “wp_”;

    Is host= the name of mysql db?
    Is username the name in the SQL db?
    And what about wpprefix? Do I leave it as is?

    I just migrated using this script ( from Nucleus CMS 3.24 to WordPress 2.1. Flawless.
