Problems importing WP_OPTIONS widget_text in Windows

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

    Problem:
    Text widgets missing in imported site.

    Analysis:
    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
    s:18:\"[bw_telephone]\r\n\r\n\";
    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.
