We need to migrate all our database to a new bigger server (digital ocean).
We need to import only the database (users, passwords, posts, topics etc…) but we don’t want import the site settings, so we can’t use the normal way (backup restore).
That’s because in our installation the old admin delete some categories (like staff and lounge) and probably other things. Originally it was a trial installation to test Discourse so many settings have been touched or changed or even deleted and, I don’t know why, he has decided to make the forum public without a fresh installation.
Is it possible to do that in a easy way (if so, possibly step-by-step) to have a new fresh installation without lost all our data?
