  • [Forum] Merging Two VB4 Databases

    Okay, so I think this is the step I need to take. I've recently converted one an IPB database into a VB4 database. I now want to merge that newly converted database into my current (and active/main) VB4 one. I'd like two things:

    1) Instructions on how to go about it; I don't think its possible with Impex, as Impex concerns itself with importing other boards into VBulletin, not VBulletin into VBulletin. So how would I do it? Should I get onto my host and ask them to merge the two databases for me?

    2) What are the implications of merging two databases? The residue data - is it likely to cause any problems?

    Sorry if this seems like a rehash of that other topic, its just this is a different issue at hand now, and that old topic became messy.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Okay, I've spoken to my host regarding the merger, and they can't help me I've also tried a simple Impex installer, and that just wipes my forum clean, and allows the new database on its own (losing my older one) So how do I go about the merger?

    I've searched far and wide on the web, but nobody seems to have a comprehensive answer.

        I don't believe Impex imports from vB4 yet but it will from a previous version.

        Have you tried posting in the Impex forum? If you raise specific points, Jerry will pick these up and answer them in there.
