  • question about importing

    is it possible to import a phpBB database from another domain to a new domain?

    for example
    www.test1.com/phpbb to www.test2.com/vbulletin

    if so what do i replace localhost with in this CFG?

    sourceexists = FALSE
    sourcedatabasetype = mysql
    sourceserver = localhost
    sourceuser =
    sourcepassword =
    sourcedatabase =
    sourcetableprefix =

    I assume the domains are on diffrent servers ?

    To be able to do this you will need the correct permissions set on the source database to allow remote connections and I doubt many ISP's will allow this as a rule, I would suggest taking a copy of source database and putting it on the target server.

    If you really want to do a remote import, it would be done like this :

    example ::

    www.test1.com IP = 1.1.1.1
    www.test1.com IP = 2.2.2.2

    sourceexists = TRUE
    sourcedatabasetype = mysql
    sourceserver = 1.1.1.1
    sourceuser = bob
    sourcepassword = bobby
    sourcedatabase = my_php_db
    sourcetableprefix = phpbb_

    Then on the source MySQL server :

    GRANT SELECT ON my_php_db.* TO 'bob'@'2.2.2.2' identified by 'bobby';

        I would strongly advise that, it would prevent lots of issues.
