We are going to develop a new site. Once complete we will want to export our existing users from the old site to new site.
We will keep the same ACL and EasyProfile fields. We also usethe Easy Profile Membership Pro plugin.
My question is: When we are ready to switch over to the new site. What do we need to do in respect to EasyProfile and importing users from old site to the new site?
Do we need to install Easy Profile on new site with exact set up as on old site. Or is there a way of exporting User field definitions (we have around 20 user fields)
Once done, do we just export users from old site and them import them to new site?
Any help on this would be appreciated.
Kind regards

the best way to do this is to export and import following DB tables:
- #__users (Joomla Users)
- #__usergroups (Joomla Usergroups)
- #__user_usergroup_map (Association between Users and Usergroups)
- #__viewlevels (Joomla ACL)
- #__jsn_users (Easy Profile's Users data)***
- #__jsn_fields (Easy Profile's fields structure)

You may need also some other table due to other components/plugins, anyway with above table you will have same Users,Usergroup,ACLs,Easy Profile fields with data.

*** NOTE: for all above tables except for table #__jsn_users you can import only data and leave the same structure, instead for tale #__jsn_users you need to import data and structure (in this table and you create/delete a field then Easy Profile will create new columns).
