How import/create multitudinous JREVIEW modules via MySQL

When I updated to Joomla 4 I lost my JReview modules for some reason - which was a bit of an issue for me as I had +840 Jreviews listings modules. I did not want to go to the trouble of recreating all of them manually. Fortunately, it turned out to be easier than I expected to export my JReviews modules from my J3 MySQL database and import them into my J4 database, recreating all the modules!

1. Via the PHPMYADMIN navigate to the database for the website with the modules you want to export

2. Navigate to _modules

3. Select the rows for the modules that you want to export

4. Scroll down to the bottom of the page/rows and click Export

5. Select Custom under Export method

6. Under Output check Rename exported databases/tables/columns and add the new database

7. Under Object creation options uncheck Add CREATE TABLE statement 

8. Then export as MySQL

9. Import the MySQL file into the _module table of the database for the new website

I've created a short screen capture video here of me doing this. Hopefully it saves you some time if you've got a bunch of modules that you need to export/import!
