Version 5.0.6-stable b2evolution

Upgrading from Movable Type

Before you begin, please note that some network features of b2evolution require you to agree our simple Terms of service.

This procedure has been tested with Movable Type version 2.661 but should also work with other versions. You can't break anything by trying anyway...

  1. Use MT's export functionnality to create a .TXT file containing your posts.
  2. Install b2evolution in the regular way.
  3. Once b2evo is up and running, copy your .TXT export file into the /blogs/admin folder on your server.
  4. In the admin, go to the Tools tab and launch the MT migration utility.
  5. Follow the instructions on screen.
  6. Import will only take a few seconds/minutes depending on how many posts you import.
