    Copy 1 data entry to the other

    Hi,

    So I recently bought another flynax license. Is there anyway if I can copy and paste data entry from my first to second website?
    It took me days to input those entries.

    Hello,

    I think it will be easier to dump 2 tables from your first database: lang_keys and data_formats

    then import these sql files into the new script (database)

    also, if you need to keep entries from the multi-field plugin, you need to export tables multi_formats and multi_formats_lang_en (if exists)

    the same way

    Thanks Rudi,

    Just to make sure. You said 3 tables but you only mention lang_keys and data_formats, is there 1 more?
    Also to keep things simple. From what I understand, I can just set up the multi-field plugin again, and choose the data entries that I imported from the first database right?

    Sorry, it was a typo, 2 tables

    for the multi-field plugin, you need to dump other tables multi_formats and multi_formats_lang_en (if exists) from your first database

    and import them into the new one via Import option in your database manager
