We have two separate servers that run Cascade Server: one is our production server and another is our Test server. We recently copied our entire Prod site to Test to test a few things but since we have done that I made several changes in a folder on our Prod server. I was just wondering if there was any way I can import and export a folder from one site to another and not just the entire site?

    Hi Matthew,

    Currently, the only way to accomplish this would be to import the entire Site.

    If there were no changes made to the Prod Site on your test instance, this would be the best route to go to avoid missing anything. If there were changes made to the Prod Site on the test instance, you could import the Site under a different name and move the changes into the existing Prod Site.

    Note: keep an eye on entity relationships here (ie internal links), you would want things to point to the existing Prod Site and not the newly imported Site.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!

    I have another question along the lines of Import/Export. How would I export one site from our Prod server and import it to our dev server? My concerns are the destinations changing. On our Test server, pages can only publish to wwwdev.scranton.edu while our Prod can publish to both that and www.scranton.edu.

    I think it's an easy fix but I am just curious. Currently, whenever we want to duplicate our Prod site to Test, one of the database guys copies it over at the database level. Would site import/export work similarly to this?

    Hi Matthew,

    If your Transports/Destinations are within the Site, you would need to update the paths and URLs accordingly; otherwise, you could end up overwriting production content.

    That being said, if the Transports are within a shared Site, the imported Site should continue reference that shared Site based on its name, this Site could have the dev paths and URLs already changed.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!
