    ImpEx moving data to database on diff. server/host

    Oops, I just posted this to the wrong forum. I'm reporting it here.

    I have a database at one forum that I want to copy data from to another vB database at a different forum, which is on a different host/domain.

    The ImpEx config file seems to only allow for a database migration if both databases are on the same server. So, how can I take an export of certain modules from database A at godaddy and import it into database B at A Small Orange.

    Furthermore, I only plan on migrating users, and I only have 25 of them. Is it even worth doing this with ImpEx? Will it mess anything up if the main admin account is exactly the same between databases, with the same e-mail address?

    ImpExConfig.php support host connection, you can put in the IP or host address if it can be resolved and ImpEx will connect as long as the database allows remote connections from the server that ImpEx is running on.
