Definitive Resource for Migrating EE3?

I have a site running EE3 and I’m developing new site – copied over the DB so that we had all the same content. But NONE of the events, attendees, registrations, etc. came over in the conversion.

Is there a definitive resource on how to migrate from EE3 to EE3??

Hi there,

We don’t have a step buy step guide for this but I can help with it.

When you migrated the database over, how did you do it?

All of Event Espresso 3’s data is stored within custom tables so if you’ve used a plugin that only supports the WP tables you wont have the EE data (the EE3 tables are prefix with {prefix}_events_)

Which version of EE3 is on the live and dev sites?

Hello Tony – sorry for the late response on this.
Both sites (legacy and DEV) are using the same version —

My sysAdmin copied the MySQL db over. I will review tables in each DB and see if there are any inconsistencies.
