Ideas on migrating or moving Event Espresso from one WordPress site to another

Event Espresso stores information in native WordPress tables along with its own custom WordPress tables.

Event Espresso 3 stores information in native WordPress tables such as wp_options. It also stores its information in wp_events_* database tables.

Event Espresso 4 stores information in native WordPress tables such as wp_posts and wp_options. It also stores its information in wp_esp_* database tables.

This means that you cannot "move" information from one website to another website by only moving over the custom WordPress tables for Event Espresso. Doing so will cause incomplete data and things won't work as expected.

Recommended solution

I recommend using a plugin like WP Migrate DB Pro as it will allow you to copy your database from one WordPress install to another with one click through your WP dashboard. It also handles serialized data correctly and this is a much better solution than handling SQL files.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
