Script to Migrate Postnuke to WordPress 2

Almost a year ago now (Jan 2006) I migrated my blog from PostNuke to WordPress and to do that I used a hacked version of Bryan’s PHP migration script (which I found here thanks to Rich Boakes), but I never got around to publishing my changes. 🙁

Changes applied:

  • Migrate PostNuke topics to WordPress categories
  • Update comment counts in the WordPress database
  • Update category counts in the WordPress database

Just had an email from someone asking about it, so I’ve decided to publish it now, so here is my hacked version of a Postnuke to WordPress Migration PHP Script.

It assumes a blank WordPress 2 install, and I last used it with WordPress 2.0.0 so caveat emptor!

Licensed under the GPLv2 (or later), as per the original.

  1. That really relies on phpnuke having the same database schema that Postnuke does, I’ve never used phpnuke so you’d really have to let me know what the schema is.

    Oh – and it’s a *really* good idea to remove your password from that script before you post it to pastebin! 🙂

  2. This might be helpful to people: I’ve just started a project called migratedata that provides a framework for migrating between all different types of databases without writing any SQL – just editing an XML file.

    I’ve provided an XML file that migrates a database from PostNuke to WordPress 2.2, so it might be what you need, devilsoulblack.
