Migration from Wordpress

Database migration from a Wordpress blog.

  • In the Gemfile
gem "mysql"
  • Add a database to the config/database.yml
  adapter: mysql
  encoding: utf8
  database: obtvse_example
  username: my_user
  password: my_pass
  host: localhost
  • Finally it could be called from the command line…
rake wordpress:migrate_wordpress[source_db, destiny_db]

That's it :-)
