Hi JuggleDad. Any chance you could send me this document that you mentioned? I"m tyring to figure out how to transfer my site to a new domain. Apparently it's not as simple as using the Export/Import functions in ATO. I tried it and nothing seemed to happen at all.

When you say you tried to export and import and nothing happened do you mean you now have two sites and you are trying to make one look like the other or you want to totally move a site to a new server?

I have www.jonathanstein.org pretty well built. But I decided on a new name for the company so bought the domain name and now want to transfer the whole site over to www.embodiedawakeninginstitute.com.

But since I'm using the same host company, I assume that means it would still be on the same server, yes?

So, in ATO 3.5.3, using the Start>Import/Export option at the top of the options list, I first Export the text file from jonathanstein.org to my desktop. Then Imported it to my new site, expecting (niavely) that something amazing was going to happen. Actually, something amazing did happen! ...Nothing! :'D

Can you help?

Thanks again!

Now I am clear. And just to be sure are both of those sites are using 3.5.3?

well the easy way of doing this would have been to point the new domain name at the same folder that the current domain points to. then go into and change the wordpress url. that way both domain names would bring up the same site and use the same database.

creating a DUPLICATE of an existing site involves a number of steps. It is best to follow the instructions in the WordPress Codex: Moving WordPress


to just copy the Atahualpa settings to a new (or old) WordPress site
1) make sure both versions of Atahualpa are at the same version (3.4.9 or higher)
2) go to the old site and EXPORT the settings (ATO->Export/Import Settings)
3) go to the new site and IMPORT the settings (ATO->Export/Import Settings)
now you will have a copy of the settings without having touched the users, posts, images, plugins etc

I have just done exactly what you have described above - steps 1 to 8 to copy my entire wordpress site to a new url - copied the entire wordpress file and directory structure, created a new blank database, exported the old one, modified all the domain names and db paths and imported it, changed wp-config, and uploaded it all.

Everything works fine - except the Options that I had set up in the Atahualpa theme are not there, it is just like a new installation.

I know that I can export the old settings and import them to the new site, but I would have thought that they would have been transferred when I moved and edited the database.

Should I have changed any other files to tell Atahualpa where the options in the database are?

Instead of trying to duplicate what WordPress describes, I've changed the description in post #31 to point at the WordPress decription. See if that helps.

I followed the Wordpress Codex to do the transfer, which worked well, and only came searching on the forum when I had a problem with the Atahualpa theme settings not being there. That's when I found this thread, which seems to describe the same problem.

The correct settings are in the new database in bfa_ata4, but they are just not being used when the theme starts up. It just seems to use the default values.
