Enable and edit migrate-config.php
First enable migrate-config.php file. It is located in the chat's install folder:
Edit migrate-config.php in a text editor and change its $enabled variable to read $enabled=true. Save the file.
Second scroll down in the file and add your old Visichat database details. Here is an example you can use as reference:
// Enter your OLD visichat database details here $options = array( 'driver' => "Mysql", 'host' => "127.0.0.1", 'name' => "visichat", 'username' => "root", 'password' => "", 'prefix' => "visichat_");
Now you can save and close the file.
Copy Members Folder
Copy your OLD members/ folder to NEW files/members/ folder.
In general, OLD refers to your old Visichat directory structure and NEW refers to your new Visichat application directory.
Copy Thumbnails Folder
Copy all of the files from your OLD members/thumbnails/ folder to NEW files/thumbnails/.
OLD refers to your old Visichat installation directrory, regardless of what you actually called it, and NEW points to the new application directory for Visichat to which the data is to be moved.
