  • Double import ?

    When I created my vBulletin forum I had to import from SMF 1.0.5 and it worked fine..

    I remember before the official release of the new forum I clicked "Import users" by mistake a second time and this fscked the database and no users could log-on.. there were some database errors..

    I had to empty the database and re-import everything.

    Now I'm planning to merge with an other forum.. they are running phpBB

    Can I import their database without damaging my database ?

    I'm affraid that if I move their database into my SQL server, then use the import utility that I will damage my database and I will have to "redo everything" (Actually I will do a mysqldump into a file before doing that)

    Do you think that this is possible to do without any troubles ?

    Read over the importing howto that is stickied at the top of this forum, it explains how to deal with multiple imports, if you need more help or have other questions after reading please feel free to ask.
