    Importing users accounts and listings to fresh install classified

    Hi everyone,
    Maybe this is already solved but I wasn't able to find solution.
    I just installed the General classified and would like to import all the ads from old site. I have data in excel and all pictures in a unique folder (more than 512mb)

    How could I proceed to import my data?
    Users and listings.


    Any idea help from you guys?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hello,

    if your xls file contains listings you can import it via "XLS/CSV Import/Export" plugin

    otherwise, it will require to migrate database tables and files according to this guide applying patches (if the version of your previous site is lower): https://forum.flynax.com/showthread....ersion-Upgrade

    or we can do it as a customization

    Hi Rudi,

    My xls file contains listings and users info ( emails, phone,..) but it's not from website based on Flynax script.
    In the "XLS/CSV Import/Export" plugin I can see zipped photo archive should be max 256MB but mine is more than this. Can I still import via the plugin?

    the plugin allows to import only listings in xls format

    zip archive size depends on the php setting upload_max_filesize
    which you can increase if necessary

    I've increased the upload_max_filesize but it's taking too long and server is getting stuck at some point.
    I'd like to know if I upload my pictures folder
    directly on the server and in the xls file I specify the picture URL like:

    http://www.mywebsite.com/files/mypic...icturename.png

    Will this work?

    PS: I have no issue importing only listings without pictures.

    Thank you

    yes, it will work,

    you need to specify direct url to image in each listing in your xls/csv file using comma (if more than one image)
