Which table contain default and custom messages? Questions?

I am running:
Event Espresso 4.9.69.p
Wordpress 4.9.8 MU subdirectory

I am setting up another site within the one wordpress mu install. I want to use the same EE4 questions/question groups and custom messages.

Which tables do I copy to the the new database?

Are these the only tables, I need to copy?
Where nn is the site id in the multisite



What is the best way of copying it (i.e. phpmyadmin import table to target database exported from origin database after dropping original records of the target table)?

Hi Raffy,

For message templates, you would not actually copy over ip_nn_esp_message, because that’s a log of messages that were sent. You would export/import

and also any rows from _esp_extra_meta that have Message_Template_Group in the EXM_type column.

For questions & question groups (and values), what you’ve listed is correct.

Usually if you export with phpmyadmin, it will add a “DROP” table statement to the export file so you shouldn’t need to drop tables before importing.
