Backup KB Content

Backing up your knowledge base can be performed similarly to backing up the whole WordPress database.

Our knowledge base uses the WordPress database structure. Some of our add-ons have custom tables which can be also backed up using some of these solutions below.

Information about Knowledge Base data structures:

  • KB Article (Custom Post Type) is stored with post type  epkb_post_type_1  ( epkb_post_type_2 etc. if you have Multiple KBs add-on)
  • KB Category taxonomy  has type epkb_post_type_1_category
  • KB Tag taxonomy has type  epkb_post_type_1_tag
  • Options are stored in WordPress Options table with prefix epkb_xxx
  • KB custom tables starting with <WordPress prefix>_<epkb>_xxx
