    Default Moving to different server, do I need to import all the tables?

    I have inherited a zen cart web site and I am currently in the process of importing data into phpMyAdmin on my server. I exported the entire database and also each individual table to SQL files. I am importing the tables one at a time. I have just started but it seems to be working okay, but I am getting a few SQL errors which I have corrected.

    My question is do I really need to import some of the tables that store logs or history, like the admin activity logs or the banners history? The orders history I will want to store but I don't see the benefit in storing the old activity logs. Any advice?

    Import All the tables

    You can empty a few either before you backup or after you import

    This can be done from the admin
