  • Importing question phpbbcity.com, phpBB --> vBulletin

    Is it possible to connect to the database of a phpbbcity.com hosted site, which is currently free and import it into vBulletin?

    And if not, if it possible to download the database from the adminCP of phpBB, and somehow use that to import into vBulletin??

    I would be 99.9999999% sure that remote connections aren't allowed, common for good security.

    Will have to be a "grab the source and run" then do the import some where else, I'm guessing.

      Hey Jerry,

      I have never seen the inside of phpBB admincp, i will tonight when my friend gets back online.
      Do you know if there is an option to download the database from there?
      And if i could grab the database from the admincp, could i push that database up to my server via SSH, then import it to vB from there??

      Thanks

        Most free web forum hosts do not allow you to access the mySQL database. They each charge for the database access or they just wont do it.

          I haven't seen the inside of the admincp there either, it would have to have a backup option or allow some kind of phpMyAdmin access.

            Yes, it does have a backup option, but when you try to backup phpBB at phpbbcity the backup option gives you a "disabled for security reasons" message..

              Hmmm ...... well not a lot I can do about that

              Have to contact them directly asking for a mysqldump I suppose.
