    I 'm sorry about this question, as I searched and could not find the answer. It might be in here but I don't have the time to read a few thousand posts. Sorry.
    This is my question:
    I like to clean up my database, so I purchased one account in a server, named it "Testforums", installed VB and I like to transfer the database there, but I only want the Members, Threads/posts and Attachments. Using Mysqldumper, what "tables" should I transfer from my actual forum to the test site? I don't really care about the hacks or styles. All I want is a "clean" forum with all the members, threads/posts and attachments.

    Don't simply transfer single tables.
    If you only want certain things, I recommend using ImpEx to import those things.
    You can select which modules to run when using ImpEx, so you can select to import only users, threads/posts, and attachments.
    Best Regards

    Please don't contact me per PM.

      Thanks, Colin. That did the trick. Impex is an excellent tool!
