Typo to WordPress migration
The Stuart Johnston posting Automatic migration from typo to WordPress got us part of the way from Typo to WordPress, but a number of things have changed in Typo since those scripts were written, so it took some jiggering to get working. We were at Typo 4.1, and the database schema was somewhat different.
This is what I did to export the data from Typo:
bash$ mysqldump -u username -p name_of_typo_db articles_tags tags categorizations categories contents feedback > dumpster.sql
Then I imported that data into the WordPress database (just did “source dumpster.sql” within mysql), then sourced typo41_migrate.sql, which is modified from Johnston’s typo_to_wordpress_with_utw.sql script.
Comments welcome on the utility of my process.
