I have a street racing and car club website for two and half year now and a friend of mine who has his own cars and motorcycle club website. I would like to bring all my members over to his website and close out my website.

My question is, Can this be done and how, without me having to create an account for each

I have a street racing and car club website for two and half year now and a friend of mine who has his own cars and motorcycle club website. I would like to bring all my members over to his website and close out my website.

My question is, Can this be done and how, without me having to create an account for each member, one by one.

Thank you for reading
Thank you everyone. main reason I want to do this, its because we both share the same information on each other website like videos, articles and start discussion.

Best Answer:

James S: Possible? Yes. If there are passwords maybe if the same encryption is setup for the passwords on both sites. Not knowing how the databases are setup, it is near impossible to give you instructions. If you have access to phpmyadmin, you can export the information in the member table. Then you might be able to create a table with the same structure on the new site and import the exported data.

Best wishes

Other answer:

James S:
The answer Chris gave before me is spot on. You will also need a way to remove duplicates because some of your members may already be on the other site.

The only thing I would add is this. Have you considered that perhaps some of your members may not want their info imported into the other site without their permission?

Chris:
Are the members stored in a database?
If so, you need to export them, probably reorganize the data, then import them into the other website's DB.

Very possible, but how to do it exactly depends on the used db and table setup.

keerok:
Just advise about the closure and mention about your friend's site. Give them the choice to move to the other site not enforce them to it.
