Manual:Merging a wiki into another wiki

Merging a wiki into another wiki, i.e. copying all the content from a source wiki into a target wiki (e.g. if you decide that you really only need one wiki rather than two separate wikis), can be done by manual or automatic means.

MethodsEdit

Either way, you're going to follow these steps:

ManualEdit

  • Download every file individually from your source wiki.
  • Upload each of these files individually to your target wiki with a suitable description.

AutomaticEdit

  • Write a bot to download all the files and their descriptions from the source wiki, saving the descriptions to a text file.
  • Use Manual:ImportImages.php to import files with their descriptions.

You're done!
