splitting up a 2.0 install and porting a single board to a 2.1 install

(1/2) > >>

... and the 2.1 site is already up and running, void of posts/members, though.

what is the best practice to extract and port over members and then the contents of a single board from the DB?

Kindred:
There is no "best practice" for this because it was never designed to be done....

drewactual:
semantics....

what WOULD BE the best practice for accomplishing this?

Kindred:
it gets really complicated because tables are cross referencing.

members, topics, messages, settings, attachments (at the very least) and probably several log_ tables

but you don't want all of the topics, messages or settings tables.

there really is no GOOD way to move over only PART of the content.

drewactual:
is there an automated manner to port/copy it to 2.1 as a complete conversion- which then i will later prune the boards not needed?
