In addition to exporting and importing individual objects, you can perform a site-wide export of almost every object in your catalog and import back into another DNN instance or to a different portal on the same instance.
To perform a portal export, click on the Export content from the Storefront Administration module's action menu. You will be prompted to choose a location to save the generated XML file. In addition to the XML file, there are other files and large binary objects that are exported to fixed location that you will need to transfer over to another system prior to importing. Please note the 0 indicates your portal number.
Prior to importing, make sure have taken a full backup of your system. You also need to make sure the software version from the system you are performing the import should be the same as the version that exported out the data. Then you need to transfer over the dependent files from the previous export to the following import folders. Please note the 0 indicates your portal number.
To perform an import, click on the Import content from the Storefront Administration module's action menu. You will be prompted to choose the location of your XML file that you previously exported out. Once the import succeeded you should test and verify the system for accuracy. Once it succeeded, you should avoid importing multiple times to the same portal as it will insert multiple entries of the same data. If an import fails, please verify the event log for errors and retry after making the necessary corrections.
