Hi Zicky

Thanks for posting.

With the latest versions of CMS Builder, the system no longer saves full paths to your images. 

That means you shouldn't need to do anything to "hook up" your images again.

What I recommend is upgrading both your installations to the latest version of CMS Builder.

Then, instead of using the CSV plugins, you can use the database backup/restore tool in CMS Builder to move your data over.

Finally, you'll still need to move your images over manually.

Does that make sense?

Let me know any questions.

Thanks for the feedback Ross.

Great news about the newer version of CMSB... and site migration with images hooking up.

One thing that I need to clarify. I'm only migrating a "section editor" multi-list from one site to the other, and both sites are different in nature.

So is it possible to backup/restore only a portion of the database - so that I get the "section editor" multi-list from one site - properly restored to the other site?

Hi Zicky

The backup tool will let you select a specific section so you don't need to pull all the data.

The images will be tricky, though; they all get uploaded to the same folder and there isn't really a way to know specifically which ones you need to move.

Basically, you end up having to move all the images.

One last thing for now, before doing the database backup/restore part, make sure you copy the schema file for your section to the new server.

Keep me up to date with how you are making out.
