How to Migrate KB Articles from 7.0 to 7.1

Created: 13 Sep 2012 | 1 comment

I have been searching for a way to migrate KB Articles from 7.0 to 7.1 and can't find any help on the topic. I have seen references to a path where the KB libraries may be located, but that doesn't exist. Since the KB Migration Process requires a path to these libraries i am assuming there is a way to export my existing KB library. Any help would be appreciated as my eyes are going crossed from reading all of the docs and i still can't find anything.

Well i couldn't find anything so i just SQL Management Studio to export/import every table with the name blog in it. I don't know if i am going to see any issues long term but it worked. The only problem i had was migrating the permissions tables b/c the ReferenceIDs didn't match up. These are the guids to the users or groups. So i had to run a query for all categories, and Blogs then find the guids for the groups that should have access and build the insert statements for all of the categories and entries. It was a huge pain, but so far so good.
