Re: How to Import members from a csv file to smf 2.0.2 ?
« on: October 11, 2018, 07:12:51 PM »
Hi Guys
I have about 5000 users to import :(
This seems to be about the latest update.

Can anyone help a noob like me to update with a sample script which works with 2.0.15
I have about 300 users manually added in and am afraid of hosing the database

TQ

I can't help you with the script but I am confused as to which version you want to import to. Are you trying to go from 2.0.15 to 2.0.2 (which would be backward)?

Step 1. Backup the database before attempting any imports/changes  :)


I too am confused about your actual question though. Perhaps you could clarify/explain/provide more details?

Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.
