Importing gedcom from site with images

Recommended Posts

Fizzgigg

I am in the process om moving the content from one TNG site to another and have a thought about the import function - if I import a gedcom from the old website to the new one and also mark the option to import media, does that mean that Pictures too get imported from the old site?

Both are using v12.1

Rather than doing a GEDCOM export/import it would be much better to move the database tables and the media folders directly from one to the other.

As long as both sites are on the same TNG version you can go to TNG Admin ------> Utilities and create a backup of all the tables and the Table Structure (a different tab). These get placed in the folder probably called backups, unless you changed its name.

Copy all those files from one site to the other (via your computer perhaps) and then go to TNG Admin ------> Utilities and Restore the Table Structure, and then the tables.

Copy all the media folders (photos, headstones, documents, etc) from one site to the other and it should all just work.
