wpForo 1.x.x How to move wpForo forum from one site to another site without losing data/contents?
I am WordPress user but would not consider myself as a tech savy.
I have a wpForo forum which is used for our team communication. My company build another wordpress site with different domain and hosting provider and would like to move our current forum to the new site with the new domain and hosting provider.
So my question is how can I export the whole forum from the current site and import it to the new site?
I tried to look for this information in the community forum but I have not found anything related to this situation. I would really appreciate any information and solution.
This is not an easy task. All topics and posts are connected to users and user IDs, if the target WordPress already has some users then it's impossible to move. You should migrate data with regenerating all related IDs. This is a large work and can be performed by migration services like gConverter or ProfProjects.
If i was doing that, i would install an exact copy (backup) to the NEW domain and then delete and change/edit whatever is needed.
Not much work to do and it will work as expected.
