Hi there, after migrating my website database from my live server into a new localhost database, my sections don’t appear in my localhost pages.
I can, however, see the sections’ content in wp_postmeta.meta_value, they’re just not showing up on the local site/WP dashboard.
I get the following errors:
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in C:\xampp\htdocs\newLocal\wp-content\plugins\generate-sections\functions\generate-sections.php on line 159
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in C:\xampp\htdocs\newLocal\wp-content\plugins\generate-sections\functions\templates\generate-sections-page-template.php on line 39
I am running GeneratePress 1.3.27 (with a child theme) and GenerateSections 1.0.14
Any ideas what might have gone wrong during migration?
Thanks in advance.

Since Sections are serialized entries, you can’t do any manual search/replacing of URLs in the database.
I would re-start the migration and use a plugin like Duplicator, All in One Migration, or even Velvet Blues Update URLs. They all take serialized options into account when replacing URLs.December 12, 2017 at 4:33 am #447640Daniel Walker
Thanks Tom. I’ve used Duplicator for migrations before, so can go back to that. In this instance I just wanted to try a manual migration but now I can see how the serialised data would get messed up by updating the URLs in phpMyAdmin.December 12, 2017 at 8:39 am #447875TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Confused me pretty good once too.
You can still do a manual migration, just use a plugin like Velvet Blues Update URLs to do the URL search/replace 🙂December 12, 2017 at 8:59 am #447900Daniel Walker
I did get it working with Better Search and Replace, although I still had to re-publish some sliders that couldn’t find their background images for some reason.
