Moving container from server to server

Post by OldnGrey » Mon Jun 23, 2008 11:10 pm

I am often in the situation where I have yesterday's shard backup on my test server and want to move items back to the main shard - eg I want to restore a container of items that was accidently deleted.

These two simple utilities can be used to copy a container (non recursive) out to a cfg file and then import the items from the same file into a target container. The cfg file can of course be moved to another server. The core idea and code is not original, Racalac did these years ago with world items.

I haven't bothered to try and figure out how to recursively copy containers, or even preserve the co-ordinates in the container. I just needed it to do what it does.
