Support » Plugin: BackUpWordPress » Problems importing WP_OPTIONS widget_text in Windows

  • bobbingwide


    Run backupwordpress on Linux server
    Download .sql file to local Windows machine
    Import .sql file into local database

    Text widgets missing in imported site.

    backupwordpress doesn’t export strings with escape characters
    so some of the serialised strings get corrupted when importing in a Windows environment.

    The following example produces the correct results
    but you get the incorrect results when the characters are not escaped.

    Notes: backwpup did not exhibit the same problems.

    PS. I noticed another problem

    Timestamps would not import. ERROR 1064 (42000)
    They were missing single quotes.
