My situation is that we have 2x Xenforo websites hosted different places, I would like to ask how I can mere the xf_User tabled easily, we spent hours yesterday without lick sadly:/ any suggestion om how this can be achieved?
My first "way to go" was trying to use the XF importer, but then I have a few other questions, so lets take this scenario, we have WEBSITE 1 and WEBSITE 2 hosted at to different hosting companies, both xenforo 1.5 forums. We want to move large parts of WEBSITE 2s data such as users and some forums over to WEBSITE 1, what I do now is login to WEBSITE 1 and go to "Import Data"and at "Select system to import from:" I choose Xenforo 1.2+, at the next step (Configure Importer: XenForo 1.2+) is where I get stuck tho, first of all this MYSQL information is the information of WEBSITE 2 correct? If so it leads to these 2-3 questions
Default is set to localhost, but as the 2 websites are hosted different places and website 2 isnt hosted at the same place as website 1 I guess localhost isnt what I am supposed to type in here, in that case what/where can I find that connection string?
MySQL User Name/MySQL Password/MySQL Database Name:
Is the username/password/Database name of WEBSITE 2s SQL database correct?
Data Directory / Internal Data Directory:
These are the filepaths to Data and Internal data on WEBSITE 1, correct?
Would love you forever if you could help me out answering these questions
Another thing I would like to mention is I have moved the entire SQL database of WEBSITE 2 over to WEBSITE 1 already
"copy the data and internal_data directories over (via FTP, rsync, etc.)."
So copy data and internal_data directories from WEBSITE 2 over to WEBSITE 1 through FTP? There will be no data loss on WEBSITE 1 then? Like we already have some users / threads / forums and what not on WEBSITE 1
In theroy to save space, do I need to copy EVERYTHING from WEBSITE 2 over to WEBSITE 1s server or is the SQL database along with Internal_data and data directories all I need from WEBSITE 2 in order to import stuff?
Finally moved entire xenforo installation from WEBSITE 2 over to WEBSITE 1s host and I tried again and now I get these errors:
The data directory could not be found.
The internal data directory could not be found.
Like I understand what they mean but unsure as of why it happends, I chosose the data and internal_data directories of the WEBSITE 2 and that path should be /twinkinfo.com/internal_data and /twinkinfo.com/data if not mistaken?
