  • Can a partial day's posts be imported?

    My host changed servers yesterday and I lost most of yesterday's posts on both of my vbulletins. My host sent me the log in information for the old server to see if I could retrieve them somehow, but I'm not sure if I can do it through the importer or not.

    I have Impex installed because I used it to import my old invisionboard when I first set up the vbulletin. So I'm getting the screen where it's asking me if I want redo module for each one. But I don't think I want to do that since I'm working with another vbulletin database on a different server.

    Any suggestions?

    You could install a test copy of vB, restore the backup db to it, then remove everything you don't want to import. After this use Impex to import the remaining posts.
