  • very confused...

    Here's my situation:

    I recently purchased a forum board that I want to merge with my already existing one. I have the database information and a .sql database backup of the forum I just purchased.

    I installed impex on my main site but I can't seem to figure out how to import the new database into my already existing one.

    Basically I just want all the users, threads, and posts to be merged into my already existing forum.

    Both forums are running 3.6.x.


    Can someone give me some clearer instructions on what I need to do specifically for my situation? Thanks in advance.

    Create a new database with no tables.
    Then import the .sql dump from the old forum into it.
    Then point impexconfig.php source to this old database.

    And run it.

    You can now import the data from that forum into the new vbulletin one
