  • Merging a VB3.5.0 site with one running VB3.5.4

    I recently acquired a VB database of a site that decided to shut down and I wanted to incorporate their user and threads into my own site's. Is there anyway for me to merge their database (which is a backup from VB3.5.0) with mine (which is currently running VB3.5.4)? The other site is down and all I have is the gzip.

    I skimmed a few threads and from what I understand ImpEx should be able to perform this, but I haven't used ImpEx since I made the migration from phpBB a year ago. Any pointers and if this is even possible would be appreciated

    You would first need to restore the 3.5.0 database to a new db. Then you can use Impex to import that data into your 3.5.4 forums.
