I'm trying to transfer a site that I have set up with Atahualpa to a new server.
I've done an EXPORT/IMPORT via wordpress for the data.
I've copied the wp-content folder that contain the Atahualpa Theme and theme folders/files.

However, the setting, widgets, etc. have not appeared on the new server.
I just have the default settings and have to rebuild all the Atahualpa Theme Options.

Where is the option information stored that I'm not getting it when I transfer?
Is there another file, folder or database?

I can rebuild all the options, but its a lot of work - there must be an easier way that I'm missing.

Thanks!

All option settings incl. Atahualpa options are saved in the wp_options table. They are not exported with a Wordpress export. You can export the Atahualpa settings to a file with http://forum.bytesforall.com/showpos...95&postcount=5

You would have to manually apply the settings on the new site but with the export.php file at least you'd have a list of only the changed settings.

Thanks. This was helpful to me too.

I put a lot of time into customizing this theme using the most excellent customization interface on my production site. Then I decided I wanted to have a test site on my PC which exactly mirrored what I had already created (I know. That was the backward way we should be doing things.).

After setting up a local version of WP (with all the same downloaded and restored content) I thought I could duplicate the customized version of this theme by simply downloading and 'turning on' a copy of the theme folder from my ISP. I've been able to do that with themes I've modified for Joomla sites. But, nope. Not possible here, I guess. All you get is the original theme settings.

Your export.php utility at least helps to easily identify my changes and thus shortens my restoration workload.
