  • Importing a V4 database

    Is it possible to reimport a V4 database after upgrading from V4 to V5 ?

    I am currently running a test site with a copy of the v4 that was upgraded through the upgrade process. Natually any changes I make to the test site will be lost if I decide to go 'Live' with the V5 site and upgrade the 'up to date' current database. I am wondering if there is a way of keeping any changes I make to the test site and reimporting the V4 database to bring all the latest activity on the live V4 site into V5.

    Hope that makes sense ...

    This isnít possible. The database structures are completely different.

      thanks for that confirmation. I suspected as much, realising the database structures were not the same. I guess the method is to reestablish the V5 site through another upgrade process and they go through the style and layout changes. Not too onerous as long as I don't get too fancy with the style changes... but that brings to mind another question.. can you do a backup of the style changes that you can then reapply I wonder ..

        You should be able to export the actual styles themselves and then import them again.
