View Full Version : Merging two PhotoPost installs?
January 8th, 2008, 11:35 AM
I have two vBulletin/PhotoPost Pro forum sites, with PhotoPost Pro intergrated. When I created them, it seemed like a good idea to keep them separate -- domains, databases, and all. Now I want to completely merge the two sites. Bummer for me, huh?
I'm pretty confident I can get the vB merge done with ImpEx, but how do I merge two photoPost installs?
Any clues or help appreciated!

There is not really a way to do that without writing some importer. All your catids photoids etc are all gonna be duplicate so merging two photopost sites is quite impossible by normal means.

Well, one of the sites' PhotoPost section is much less used than the other, so I'm looking at doing it manually, huh? I could probably do it in a long weekend... like I said, bummer for me. :-\
Edit: I just checked, and the lesser of the two PP sites has 3,750 photos in it. Any suggestions at all, or am I just stuck doing them one at a time?

Well your going to have issues for sure. If you dont mind owning the images from the other photopost install you could try bulkuploading them category by category once you get your forums merged. That way you could process the images into the other install but there really is no way to merge two installs unless you do it by hand.
