@nicole2292 The issue isn't that Gravity Forms can't be migrated. The issue is PHPMyAdmin's import/export functionality doesn't properly handle serialized data.
The problem isn't Gravity Forms, the problem is the tool you are using to import/export MySQL data. It doesn't handle the data properly and results in bad data being imported.
What exactly are you wanting to recover? Are you simply concerned with the forms themselves or do you need to recover the form entries also?
If the forms are your only concern then you shouldn't import/export Gravity Forms this way using PHPMyAdmin. You should use the Gravity Forms Import/Export functionality to Export the Forms to an XML file and then import that XML file in your new site using the Gravity Forms Import Forms functionality.
If you need to recover the entries, that is more problematic if the form meta data is corrupt.
Contact me directly at email@example.com and provide me with a SQL export file of JUST the Gravity Forms database tables for your site (ALL of the rg_* tables in your WordPress database). We can take a look and see why the Meta Recovery tool is not recovering the multi-page form.
