Engine Configuration Transfer
Using the Engine Configuration Transfer you can copy an export of your Engines from one installation and paste it into the Import of another.
Note: Any Engine being imported that has the same
name as an existing Engine will be overwritten!
After an Engine configuration has been imported you should rebuild the Index using the Rebuild Index button on the Engines tab of the SearchWP settings screen.
