Import data from KeePass

Postby jb1 » Sat Sep 27, 2008 9:46 pm

Hi, I'm having some trouble importing my data from KeePass. First off, I'm on Linux, so I'm using KeePassX, though I'm not sure the procedure would be any different. But I followed the instructions exactly as they were listed for KeePass, and I get nothing. It just says "Found 0 sites or could not parse data". Maybe KeePassX is different? If so, is there some sort of workaround for importing my data?

Thanks,

John

The format we expect for Keepass is like this (see below) -- if keypassX is different, please send us a copy to support@lastpass.com and we'll support it:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>
<pwlist>
<pwentry>
<group tree="General">Internet</group>
<title>title</title>
<username>username</username>
<url>http://www.example.com/lp/login.php</url>
<password>password</password>
<notes>notes</notes>
</pwentry>

FYI...This should now be supported. Keepass and KeepassX are not both accepted (use the Keepass option for both).

Thanks for the example.

My KeePassX produces something like:
Code: Select All Code
<!DOCTYPE KEEPASSX_DATABASE>
<database>
 <group>
  <title>General</title>
  <icon>48</icon>
  <group>
   <title>group title</title>
   <icon>3</icon>
   <group>
    <title>group title</title>
    <icon>48</icon>
    <entry>
     <title>title</title>
     <username>username</username>
     <password>password</password>
     <url></url>
     <comment></comment>
     <icon>0</icon>
     <creation>2009-03-04T18:03:12</creation>
     <lastaccess>2009-03-04T18:03:40</lastaccess>
     <lastmod>2009-03-04T18:03:40</lastmod>
     <expire>Never</expire>
    </entry>
   </group>
  </group>
 </group>
</database>

That looks very different from aboves example. I use version 0.3.3.
Could you make such an import possible as well?

Many Thanks
Klaus

Have you tried importing first? Our KeePass import should accept both KeePass and KeePassX export files.

Hi, I am using KeepassX version 0.4.1 on the mac and i just installed the lastpass for safari on the mac. I followed the instructions for exporting passwords from Keepassx and tried to import it into Lastpass and it kept crashing Safari.

The format of my exported Keepassx xml file is

<!DOCTYPE KEEPASSX_DATABASE>
<database>
<group>
<title>General</title>
<icon>48</icon>
<entry>
<title>KeePassSync (digitalbucket.net)</title>
<username>a@a.com</username>
<password>aaaa</password>
<url>www.a.com</url>
<comment>Don't rename this entry or your online password information will be lost.</comment>
<icon>0</icon>
<creation>2008-08-29T00:57:48</creation>
<lastaccess>2008-08-29T00:57:48</lastaccess>
<lastmod>2008-08-29T00:57:48</lastmod>
<expire>Never</expire>
</entry>
</group>
</database>

Please let me know if this Keepassx format is supported. Looking forward to trying out lastpass. Thanks.

I just pasted your entry into
https://lastpass.com/?ac=1 -> Import -> Keepass

And it worked -- we'll investigate the crash -- can you send the crash report to support@lastpass.com ?

I imagine that Firefox would work directly as well

Hi Joe

Thanks. I tried importing using the firefox plugin and it seems to work fine. I will forward the crash report to the support email. Thanks for your help again.
