I could use some help with an issue I'm pretty sure there's a quick way about going about doing this but reaching out on this one.
I have an old backup of a website, DragonflyCMS (9.2.?), and hopefully MySQL Database.
The website was migrated to a new server and the cPanel information changed along with database username/password. So far the website content has been restored and MySQL Database created, but I need to manually get the CMS to connect again. The MySQL Database now has a new username and password.
What's the best way to go about this? I need to update the login credentials for the config/CMS.
After looking at the forum conversion nightmare, I have a new plan since most of my forums are time sensitive information I can just add the current stuff in the new install and maintain the old database for anything historical.
1. Fully install the new Dragonfly
2. Compare user tables and make sure my old user table will merge with the new user table.
3. Do the same with statistics, since I would like the site historical data preserved.
Does this sound a little easier?
Is there anywhere else the users are linked? Not including the obvious of data they have entered. Since the board will be new anything they have added previously would be irrelevant.
Is the member list pulled strictly from the user table?
Are the stats only pulled from the stats_hour table?
Server specs (Server OS / Apache / MySQL / PHP / DragonflyCMS):
Ubuntu 14.04.1/Apache 2/5.5.38/5.5.9/18.104.22.168
