    Thanks for the reply Zachery.

    I thought I would be able to import the "lost" portion of the database via SQL?

    You can't. You either need to be willing to take the loss of the data, or go though the upgrade again.

    You can export yoour style, and plugins and move them to the live site. So the only real work is running the upgrade script and importing style/plugins.

  • Upgrade 3.6.5 to 3..8.5 done on test site - advice now

    Hi all,

    I have copied all my live site to another folder, fully upgraded this to 3.8.5 and sorted everything out, templates, replaced and added all plugins, which has taken me a week (a couple hours per day).

    Now I have come this far (And don't want to do it all again!), I want to set this Test Forum as my main LIVE site, by renaming folder and obviously changing the config.

    The advice I need is - as I will lose hundreds of posts and members over this past week - How can I add this information to the Test database please?

    Thanks,
    Regards,
    Dave
