View Full Version : Merging PP databases
March 14th, 2010, 06:44 PM
I know it's been asked before, but I'd just like to confirm: what's the easiest way to merge three PP DBs? They share the same user DB, server and domain with vB3 integration. A manual import of 2000+ pics sounds pretty time-consuming...
Thanks in advance!

There really is no way to merge photopost databases since you have photo comment user category notification id's all the same throughout the 3 databases so merging them does not work.
You would need to create some custom script to do that type of thing so that ids get redone etc.

yeah every now and then we have seen this question asked over the years. ;) The way mysql stores data and record numbers makes it hard to manually merge its always some type of import script that has to be written to redo data records.
