How can I migrate my existing DB which is in MSSQL to discourse DB?


(Love Chopra ) #1

I want to use discourse as a core q&a functionality on my website and I am really concerned about my existing data migration to Discourse, I have all the user profiles, their posted query and other associated users data, so I wanted to know How can I migrate my existing DB which is in MSSQL to discourse DB?

Is that a database for a home grown application or something more widely used?

Some scripts have been written to import data from other forum platforms. Search for “Import” here for those topics.

It’s a home grown appliction, written from the scratch not based on other forum patforms

In that case you will be on your own to implement it or hire someone to do the work, but the existing [import scripts] (discourse/script/import_scripts at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub) are probably a good place to start.
