Hi,

To import from 1.x you should:

1. Install Links SQL 2 into a separate directory.
2. Setup Links SQL 2 using a separate database, or if you only have one database, make sure to use Prefix during installation (i.e. if you use new_ then all tables will be prefixed with new_ as in new_Users, new_Links, etc.) This way you can have both programs in the same database without conflicting.
3. Run the nph-import.cgi script. For large databases you need to run this from shell. You put the path to the old def, and path to the new def directory and it will import all your data and any custom columns you had.

You do not need to export from Links SQL 1.x.

Cheers,

Alex
