Using database from older version in new?


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to import an established database from an older version? I don't want to mess with the older one while it's still live. I saved it in phpmyadmin and tried to load some of the tables but kept getting errors. I'm guessing that there are extra or different table names in the snapshot versions, but I don't know where to start..


Any advice much appreciated. Don't want to have to redo the whole thing with over 300 products :cry:



I used to be insane, but now I'm just nuts ;)

My suggestion. Export (dump) the contents only using full inserts. Reload each table individually or a few at a time into the new database and see what phpmyadmin complains about. Be careful of orders_status_history. There may be others depending on how recent your snapshot was.
