conversion CMSimple to CMSimple_XH

Post by roze » Wed Sep 07, 2022 12:59 pm

I want to change a CMSimple 5.7 website to a CMSimple_XH 1.7.5 website.

In CMSimple the content is a .php file and in CMSimple_XH the content is a .htm file
and there is a pagedate file.

Is there a possibility to convert those files?

That is about migration to CMSimple_XH ≤ 1.7.0; and besides that from a pretty old CMSimple. And that discussion is in German.

Anyhow, I haven't followed the development of CMSimple in the recent years, but there is a configuration option use → h1only_pagesplitting. If that is "true", the content.php of CMSimple can be used as content.htm of CMSimple_XH ≤ 1.7.0, so first migrate to CMSimple_XH 1.6.10 (you may need to delete the <?php ... ?> stuff at the beginning of the file). This looses the info in pagedata.php, though, which can be merged in manually, but there might be some tool around to help with that (maybe something in the thread mentioned by @olape). Afterwards you would need to upgrade from CMSimple_XH 1.6.10 to 1.7.5; for this, see the Upgrade Instructions in viewtopic.php?f=2&t=12885.

That could also be helpful, just also in German.
