Migrate From ArticleDemon 1 To 2

With the release of ArticleDemon 2, users on version 1 will definitely want to have the option to migrate their existing accounts to the new version.

  • Do I have to uninstall the previous version of Article Demon before installing the new version. If no, then should I install the new version of Article Demon on a different folder/path?


  • admin on 30 Mar, 2012 12:15 pm commented:
  • No. You don't have to remove the old version to install the new one. Simply install AD2 into the default folder indicated by the installer.

  • I have a large number of spun articles set up in the submission queue - will I lose all of these or can they be migrated into the new version?


  • TT on 05 Apr, 2012 09:11 am commented:
  • Do you have to set up AD2 as if you were installing it for the very first time, or can the set up details for AD1 be migrated?


  • admin on 05 Apr, 2012 10:28 am commented:
  • @TracyT The data structure of v2 is different from v1 so I will suggest that you complete your submission for the articles that you have already setup in v1 before moving on to v2.

    For future submissions, you can add them into v2. 

    @TT Only accounts and email addresses can be migrated from v1 to v2. Spun articles can't be exported.
