  • Importing From Lycos!

    HELP! Ok so i just purchased VB3 and im trying to import my old phpbb files from my database over to my server.

    Here is all the information i provided:

    targetdatabasetype = mysql
    targetserver = localhost
    targetuser = xgodxicex
    targetpassword = ****
    targetdatabase = vb_forum
    targettableprefix =
    [ Source Database ]

    ; If the system that is being imported from uses a database,

    ; enter the details for it here and set 'sourceexists' to TRUE.

    ; If the source data is NOT stored in a database, set 'sourceexists' to FALSE

    sourceexists = TRUE

    sourcedatabasetype = mysql
    sourceserver =
    sourceuser = ****
    sourcepassword = ****
    sourcedatabase = xgodxicex_uk_db
    sourcetableprefix =

    and i keep getting database errors... can anyone help?

      You should really get your database and put it on the server your using now.

        how exactly can i do that through lycos?


        • #5
          Youll probaly need to install phpmyadmin and dump the database via that program. then import it on your new server\

            oh ok, i have phpmyadmin in my current server for the your saying i should also install a copy onto the lycos server?


            • #7
              Yes, i doubtt lycos allows remote connections. you need to dump your datbase from the lycos server and restore it to your new server.

                  well i tried to do it, and it phpmyadmin works, but its telling me that there are no databases....strange....

                  EDIT: ok so i was able to transfer all of the database over to my server, it turned out that lycos actually had phpmyadmin already installed. However, now im still getting the same errors...

                  EDIT2: forget it, i figured out the problem, was using the wrong user name for the mysql database....thanks
