Exporting Maps (2 posts)

    So I have about 8 maps setup on my test site. When I export my WordPress files and import them into the new site- will it take my maps data with it- or so I need to rebuild them?

    Sadly I don't think that an export will take these along for the ride.

    Do you have access to the database? You can dump the two DB tables that contain all the map info and move them over to your new database. Those tables don't contain info that is specific to any particular WP installation.

    For example:

    mysqldump -u old_db_user_name -p old_database_name wp_wpgmappity_maps < maps_export.sql

    mysqldump -u old_db_user_name -p old_database_name wp_wpgmappity_markers < markers_export.sql


    mysql -u new_db_user_name -p new_database_name wp_wpgmappity_maps < maps_export.sql

    mysql -u new_db_user_name -p new_database_name wp_wpgmappity_markers < markers_export.sql
