Question for the community here for anyone that's using WPEngine hosting with their forum. 

When doing a copy environment function (say from Development or Staging to Production), what tables are you excluding so that you don't accidentally overwrite your forum posts or members?

I'm very familiar with WPEngine hosting, but not familiar at all with wpForo. This is my first site build that includes one.

Any help or even a point in the right direction would be super appreciated. 

Thanks!

Hi @jeff-v23,

wpForo doesn't have its user, but uses WordPress Users, and because of that the users data is in WordPress wp_users and wp_usermeta tables. Also, wpForo options are in wp_options table, and all other wpForo data is in the tables with wpforo prefix.

@chris Thank you! So if I understand correctly, as long as I exclude the following data I should not have any concern about overwriting forum members or posts when I copy environments:

wp_users
wp_options table
All wpforo data

Is that correct?
