Transfer all settings from an installation to another

Post by forensis » 13 Oct 2019, 13:14

In which file (or in which files) are the settings / options of Phocadownload saved? In the database apparently not.
My intention: I would like to transfer all settings from an installation 1:1 to another installation without having to enter them manually one by one.
Simply transferring all the Phocadownload database tables is not enough.

Regards, fori

Hi, Phoca Download is a Joomla! component and its options are saved like by other components - in database in table:

#__extensions

in columns:
- params
- manifest cache

Thank you very much for the explanation!
So far, I had thought that ALL what belongs to a component in the DB should also be found under the leading name of this component ...

Hi, in fact the extensions are even a part of Joomla! CMS and as the core extensions, they just have options stored in Joomla! core tables. The same like e.g. installation of uninstallation of the component. It is done by Joomla! not by component itself.
