  • import without source server connection?

    im using godaddy and they are being total jerkoffs and wont let me upgrade to a virtual dedicated server to be able to get a remote connection to my database so...

    i have tried using phpmyadmin on both sides to get the forum ported over. however this is not working. the forums themselves arnt moving and i cannot login on the new site. im not sure what the cause of this is so im trying everything. impex is designed specifically to port vbulliten. is there a way to get it to read the source from a file?

    So you can't get the source database at all ? Nothing from phpMyAdmin ?

    ImpEx can't read from a SQL backup file (for a database source system), it needs that restored to a database where it can connect and use SQL.
    I wrote ImpEx.

        ~~ the flash header not showing isnt part of the DB problem.

        i have done some tests. i believe its godaddy.com screwing up. not the new host. the dump isnt getting downloaded correctly.

          I'm not sure what it is that you are uploading as they both look like vBulletin boards.

          I think from reading this again :

          impex is designed specifically to port vbulliten.
          You're trying to use ImpEx to do a server move and not an import.

          ImpEx isn't not designed for that at all.
