An export creates a set of folders in the local server. To make the export package available for import in another server, you must copy the exported folders to the target server.


  • A host / super user account. Hosts have full permissions to all sites in the DNN instance.


  1. In the source server (where the export was done), find the export package(s).
    1. Go to Persona Bar > Settings > Import-Export.
      Persona Bar > Settings > Import-Export
    2. Under Import / Export Log, search for the export package(s) you want.
      Tip: Set Filter to All Exports.
    3. Note the Folder Name and the Export Mode.
      Warning: If the Export Mode is Differential, you must copy all export packages since your last import.
    4. In Windows Explorer, go to the App_Data/ExportImport folder.

      Each subfolder is an export package.

  2. In the target server (where the import will be done), go to the App_Data/ExportImport folder.
  3. Copy the export package subfolder from the source server to the target server.
    Important: The path in the target server must be the same as the path in the source server.
  4. View the Import / Export Log of the DNN installation in the target server.
