Migrate RSComments! from Joomla! 2.5 to 3.x

RSComments!, in its present form, does not include a feature that would allow you to backup / restore its data in order to migrate it from one website to another. This leaves users in the position where they need to transfer the component's database tables in order to perform the migration:

  • dbprefix_rscomments_comments
  • dbprefix_rscomments_groups
  • dbprefix_rscomments_messages
  • dbprefix_rscomments_subscriptions
  • dbprefix_rscomments_threads
  • dbprefix_rscomments_votes


  • Make sure to update RSComments!, on both websites, to the latest revision before transferring the tables.
  • Considering that some of RSComments!'s tables reference the user ID found in the default Joomla! _users table, you will need to transfer that table as well, in order to keep those references.
