  • Need some advice/help on merging 2 vb forums

    I have a site with over 25,000 members (Version 3.6.4) and a freinds site is closing and wants to merge with mine he has 2,000 members (Version 3.6.0) so my question is how hard would it be to merge his site with mine, also we do have alot of the same users.
    If it is hard to merge the whole site would it be ezier just to merge users ?

    You should be able to use Impex to do this with few issues. You just need to make sure the databases are on the same server.

    Please read the online Impex import instructions here:

    Also please view the 'After the Import' instructions here:

        Backup and restore the dataase to the same server as the vB you want to import into.
