So i had a joomla 1.5 site and created a new joomla 1.6 site. I merged the old 1.5 jos_content table to the new 1.6 one and uploaded it to the new site. I now have all my old articles like I want but since then, everytime i try to create a new article it assigns it with an ID=0. How can i reset this to start adding to where the new jos_content table ends?

So this is an AUTO_NUMBER field? If so, you can try seeding it to new starting point. i.e., if your old jos_content ended at 999, you can set AUTO_NUMBER = 1000.

ALTER TABLE jos_content AUTO_INCREMENT=1000;

Open in new window

Thanks guys. I actually found the same answer you guys just posted.

I imported via excel and forgot that it did not set the auto increment. A minor overlook that caused me a big headache. thanks
