    Not really enough info. What exactly did you do, why did you do it, and what is happening now?

      I uploaded the site to the new server.

      Then I did the following:

      1. changed config.php to access the new db 2. imported the sql file to the new database via phpmyadmin

      After this did not work, I did a fresh install of vb 3.83 and then imported the backup.sql file via phpmyadmin
      now there is no info no styles no new users. nothing

        Do you know what version is your backup?
        If you do:
        Download that version, and upload it to your server.
        Create a new database.
        Install your vB to that new database.
        Now is the time to export your backup to that new database.

            Firstly, what size is your database? Depending on the size, phpMy Admin might not be importing the whole thing. If you're not having much success with SSH, try using something like BigDump instead.

            Do you still have access to the old site? If so, look at the bottom of any page and you should see the version number of vBulletin you're using. If not, have a look in the install folder - what's the highest numbered upgrade file (e.g. 'upgrade_381.php' would suggest that you're running 3.8.1 etc.). Once you know which version you have, download those files from the member area again.


            After this did not work, I did a fresh install of vb 3.83 and then imported the backup.sql file via phpmyadmin now there is no info no styles no new users. nothing
            This is the wrong way to go about it. What you're doing is putting old data into an updated database structure. You should ALWAYS import before doing any upgrade. Table change between versions so unless you were already using 3.8.3 then you're unlikely to get your forum working correctly by doing this.
