Script migration procedure

You will need to install the program you want via QuickInstall and then migrate the data from your old installation to your new installation.

Here are the general steps:

  1. Log in to your script's admin panel.
  2. Move your current (old) script installation to a new folder.
  3. Open QuickInstall.
  4. Choose to do a fresh install of the same script in the original folder.
  5. Use the same settings you used for the old script installation.
  6. Create a SQL backup of your old script's database.
  7. Import that SQL backup to your new script's database.
  8. Visit your site and refresh to be sure everything looks the same.

After completing these steps, you should be able to manage and update the script via QuickInstall. This procedure works the same for any script you want to have associated with QuickInstall.

Note:  The above process will not work for phpFreeChat or PmWiki, as they do not use databases to store information.
