I am using Umbraco 11 and my old site was not using a framework.
What is the best way to import the data into my new site?
Both sites use MSSQL databases.
I am assuming I should download the data from my old site into a CSV file and then upload it to my new site but not sure how to map the fields for each page.
Right now the 1st thing I want to do is import a list of News articles (around 300)
All the articles have the same fields
and I already created the Document type "News Item Page"
There is no real 'best way' of doing an import and export, as there are several options out there. Mapping on a database level is very tricky and not something I would personally recommend.
One of the options that I would recommend would be to use the exported CSV of your old website, and create a (migration) script in your Umbraco application reading your CSV file and making use of the various Umbraco API's & Services to create the content items correspondingly! You'll have to map the fields of your CSV to the fields of your document types yourself though, but you won't have to do all the heavy lifting from a database perspective
Hope this helps you get into the right directions!
Hi Yaco ,
Just to add If you had evaluated the database tables and structure is same than you can expot and import the same easily.
Let me know If you need any help further
You can try my CMSImport package, free for CSV files and max is 500 records so should work
