since there have been a lot of problems with our OJS installation on postgreql, we decided to change the database type to MySQL.
A complete database transfer doesn’t seem to be possible (slightly different database schema, coding problems)
Now I have made a complete new and empty installation on MySQL an I want to import as much as possible from the old installation.
Both installations are on version 3.1.0. I am not able to update the PostgreSQL installation. That’s one of the reason for the new DB type.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be as easy as I hoped it to be.
The export function of the user import/export plugin creates a xml based file successfully, but I am not able to import that file on the other Installation. I get one-way road sign without any errors showing below. Also there are no errors in the apache error log. I
The native xml plugin on the other hand, does the export and shows some errors, but its every time a missing user. So I need to fix the user import first
Unfortunally the fullJournalTransfer plugin isn’t compatible to version 3.
Does anyone has got a clue how to fix this problem.
Thanks in advance
