    Hello everyone!

    I am in the process of transferring my WP Site to a new install. I have managed to transfer all posts, pages, comments, and relevant plugins. However, I am having some difficulty finding a way to transfer my current users to the new site.

    My current version has roughly 4,000 users, so I would love to find a way to transfer all users through some sort of import/export mechanism or perhaps through phpMyAdmin?

    Any ideas would be insanely helpful.

    Thanks everyone.
    Alberto

    Hi Alberto,

    You should be able to export the wp_users table and import that into your new database:

    Hope this helps!
