I'd like to transfer all my surveys and database to a new installation (my current installation got screwed up after updating).

I uploaded and install the most recent stable version
I have a LS Database dump

I have tried to create a new database, import the database dump, and point the config.php to the new database...however, my old surveys don't load into the new installation.

Does anyone know how to do this?

try with a new empty database.
export surveys from the old installation from inside of lime.
import into the new installation
(hopefully there is a backup of the old)

Thanks. I was hoping that there's a way to export ALL the surveys at the same time, their tables, and their data. As per your suggestion, I'd have to export surveys one by one...

May be there is a way to do it via sql.
But I am not that much involved to tell how without trying it with real data.

Hello,

Think it's best to:
- Copy the 1st DB via phpMyAdmin (or other)
- Make a new installation and choose this DB at installation.

Because LS need to update the DB version.
