Hi Everyone,

I am in the process of revamping an existing site that has been running Atahualpa 2.2.1. I am setting up a test site on another server to avoid downtime; I wish to use Atahualpa 3.46 on the new server. I will setup the new look (Atahualpa settings) on the new server and I wish to import the old database for the content. However, if I do this, I am afraid my new theme settings will be overwritten by the old Atahualpa settings. What is the best way to do this?

Thank you,

SupraTT

OSX 10.11.5 WP 4.x Atahualpa(all) Safari, Firefox, Chrome
Think of the theme as having two parts (1) the code and (2) the options stored in th database
While I can't speak to 2.2.1 - I assume that the options were stored in the database there also

When you create the new site, add both the 2.2.1 version of the theme and the 3.4.6 version (name the folder atahualpa346 so it won't conflice and you can have the two versions in the wordpress theme picker). Then you should do an export of your current database (edit the sql to change the wp-options blog address to point to the new location) and import it into the new database.

At this point you should be able to activate the 221 version and it should look as is. Next you can switch to the 346 version and see how it looks.

Hi Juggledad,

Thank you for the response. Is there a way to remove the 2.2.1 BFA content from the database? I just want to start fresh with the 3.4.6 theme. I know there is a SQL command to just copy the BFA entries... is there a command to remove the BFA entries?

Thanky you,

SupraTT

DELETE FROM `wp_options` WHERE option_name REGEXP '^bfa_ata_';
