We have a client who was getting errors when trying to add a lot of articles (like a dozen) to their live site in a short time span, but we found that after moving their site to a localhost they did not encounter the problem anymore. Now they are finished adding the articles on their localhost, and want to push the changes to the live site. The only change they have made is adding less than 100 articles.
My question is: do I have to migrate the entire site back from their localhost to the live server, or can I just export/import the database?
I understand there are Joomla extensions for migrating articles between different CMSs and between different releases of Joomla, but these two sites are exactly the same other than one has different database content. Importing the database seems like it would be the simplest solution, I just want to know if it actually works before plowing forward.
