  • Importing from 3.6 to 3.6.4 from

    one server to another.
    I put in all my source info and set the sourcexists to true.

    I keep coming up with:
    "Connection to source server failed. Check username and password."

    But if I set it to false it starts to import then tells me that it can't because it's importing from a database.

    any ideas?

    You have to set it to true and you need the correct source db info. If you are trying to import the data from a different server then this probably won't work since most hosts do not allow remote connections to MySQL.

      that's what I'm doing, trying to import from bluehost to hostforweb, 2 different servers.

      So how will I get my database and all that stuff over to my new site/board?

        ok, i did live chat with bluehost, they told me they do allow it that I had to whitelist my IP, I did that, then set the settings to the correct settings and I still can't get past the password/username issue

        any other ideas?

            As per your support ticket they are still not allowing remote access to that server and database.

            You will need to backup and restore this database to your existing server. The only consistently reliable method of backing up and restoring a database is with shell access via telnet or ssh. This is because backing up with a PHP script like that in the Admin CP or phpMyAdmin can result in PHP timeout errors and an incomplete backup file.

            Please see the instructions here:

            Backup:

            Restore:
            http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/m...ce_ssh_restore

            If you don't have telnet or SSH access, some people have reported success with these scripts:
