  • Saving a Database from one server, imprex on another?

    HEllo there guys and girls.

    theres a phpBB set up on a server which has been running for ages. I wish to upgrade it to VB and put it on a new server. I've set up the VB on the new server and i need to get the php onto it.

    I've briefly read over impex and tried using it, but im not sure how to do this. Would it work if i saved the database from the phpBB, then put it on the new server, then ran impex? would it read it?

    Or can impex only work if it remains on the same server?

    thanks for your help

    Yes, backup the phpBB database and restore it to a new vB on your vB server. Then run Impex. Please read the online Impex import instructions here:
