UPDATE wp_posts, wp_postmeta
SET wp_posts.post_date_gmt = wp_postmeta.meta_value
WHERE wp_posts.ID = wp_postmeta.post_id and
wp_postmeta.meta_key = ‘bte_opp_original_pub_date’;

UPDATE wp_posts, wp_postmeta
SET wp_posts.post_date = wp_postmeta.meta_value
WHERE wp_posts.ID = wp_postmeta.post_id and
wp_postmeta.meta_key = ‘bte_opp_original_pub_date’;
