I want to transfer all my old sermons from Powerpress to CA media but I don’t want to be downloading and uploading again through the browser. Is it OK for me to move my existing mp3 files to the uploads/sermons folder via my hosts file manager and then add the url path as an external media file in the Church Admin media section?
Hi Sean, If you move them to the uploads/sermons folder than Church Admin>Media>Add Already Uploaded File will list them all and you can add them manually in.
If there are hundreds, we could come up with a migration script that can grab the data from Powerpress, but I have never used it, so would need a full database back to work it out. I imagine it uses a custom post type so should be relatively easy to do. I’d need the posts and post_meta tables as well as the church admin ones to work it out though!!! Probably easiest to export the whole database using PHPMyAdmin
