  • Merging 2 vB databases!

    I'm merging a friends vB database into mine.
    I've put up a temporary board next to mine so they're on the same server.
    Impex is installed on the target board, and I'm literally ready to go.
    Can anybody give me some advice on any potential pitfalls or problems as I don't want to end up destroying my board in the process?
    Any Do's or Don'ts?

    1) Read the HOWTO and back up the source and target.

    2) Import the friends board into a copy of yours, i.e. install vBulletin again (for dev and testing) then import into that.

    3) Merge the users based on email.

    4) Have some of the mods of both boards look over the result.

    5) Read the HOWTO
    I wrote ImpEx.

        All done....and it went superbly. What a great piece of kit Impex is!

        Thanks for the advice on associating mail addresses Jerry, it made it a lot easier.
