Guys, I can really use some help here. In SuiteCRM Admin, there is a function in Backup for exporting the SuiteCRM data which includes the custom fields that may have been created. Question is, there is no Restore option so where would you use this file that you saved??
What if your server crashes? you can reinstall SuiteCRM and your database dump, but then the custom fields are missing??
Am I missing something?
I need to move my working installation to a new server, but can’t figure how to get the custom fields back.
Could you explain the sequence a little more in detail? I don’t understand how a new install of Suitecrm is going to get the custom fields added. I have never worked with myphpadmin and I am not an expert in databases.
I tried xammp as I was having issues getting php to work on the new pc. I deleted it as I managed to configure manually and my original install did not use xammp. I can reinstall with xammp if required.
I just want to make sure I follow you correctly.
Install suite crm which will create a blank MySQL database without custom fields.
Use phpmyadmin to import Suitecrm meta backup file to add custom fields to new database.
Then import data into database from MySQL dump file using MySQL control panel?
