  • Need Info on moving a forum.

    Where can I get info on moving a forum from one server to another. The How To's.

    Instructions for moving servers are in the online manual here:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/moving_servers

    Note: The only reliable method of backing up and restoring a database is with shell access via telnet or ssh. This is because backing up with a PHP script like that in the Admin CP or phpMyAdmin can result in PHP timeouts errors and an incomplete backup file. Please see the instructions here:

    Backup:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/m...nce_ssh_backup

    Restore:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/m...ce_ssh_restore

    P.S. If you do not have telnet or SSH access, some people have reported success with these scripts:

    MySQLDumper:
    http://www.mysqldumper.de/en/index.php

    MySQLHotxcopy:

    Bigdump (restore only):

            Export your DB thru phpMyAdmin and import it back thru the same utility.
