Table of contents
DatabasesYou can import and export databases by means of PhpMyAdmin.
In addition, you can export a database from the command line with something like:
mysqldump -u mysqluser -p db > file.sql
And import it to a new server with a similar command in the new server (provided you ftp upload the file to your new server):
mysql -u mysqluser -p -f db < file.sql
where mysqluser stands for your mysql username,
- -p with no passwod will imply that the mysql server qill request you the password as hidden input in the next line after you hit enter in the command above
- -f indicates that you want to force the mysql to continue even if it finds that some mysql column already exists, etc.
- db stands for the database name
- file.sql stands for the sql filename.
ProfilesProfiles are designed to help configure Tiki sites. But since they can create data (typically for sample data), they can be used to import various data types. Notably: Article, Blog, Category, Menu, Tracker and Wiki
