    How to copy theme developed on one instance of SilverStripe to another Link to this post

    I developed a theme on a SilverStripe based on MS SQL. My hosting site does not support that. I created another instance of SilverStripe using MYSQL (which they support). I would now like to move my developed theme (based on the cloudy theme) over. I just copied the theme into the themes folder on the new instance, but i don't see my pages, etc. Hope I don't have to redo everything. Thanks, Rich

    Hi,

    just copying the files (e.g. themes/blancandy/) is all that is needed to copy the theme. When you say "but i don't see my pages" this sounds like you were expecting that to copy data base data as well... in that case your best bet is to export the database from MSSQL and import into MYSQL - if that works - I've never tried it and I'd expect a roadbump or two.

    I'd recommend HeidiSQL as good tool to try the export MSSQL -> import MYSQL.
