I would like to import a complete
journal from an external (18.104.22.168) OJS installation to our own, and I am thinking of the following procedure:
1. import the sql dump of the external database into a temporary OJS 22.214.171.124 installation on some local server
2. upgrade this temporary OJS installation to current level
3. use sql script to increment all autoincrement ids of journal, issues, articles (and all references to these!!) etc. to levels that do not conflict with our own journals, issues, articles, etc.
4. sql dump this and import into our current OJS 126.96.36.199 installation.
May be first
backup our current installation ...
I was wondering if you might already have such script mentioned in 3. and have any additional tips, tricks and precautions?
Update: forgot to mention that -of course- the [files] directory must be copied and renamed. (M)
