  • What is destination for migrated database?

    I uploaded a backed up copy of my old forum database - ipb.sql - using Core FTP into a folder named "dump" on my new server to test my new vBulletin software.

    I want to use Impex to convert it from IPB.

    Where do I actually need to place that database file, and what is the "source" configuration for that file (localhost?). Is there a separate mysql server?

    Thanks for your help!

    Make a totally new empty database, and import the ipb.sql into it. You don't need the ipb files ..

      It's almost 1GB in size and does not easily import through the browser. I started it last night and it didn't finish, at all.

      I'm assuming I need to import it through Impex, right?

      Thanks for your assistance.

        ask the host to import it from shell.

          Got it worked out and I am importing from Impex.

          My username/password info was incorrect, and my source had to be XXXXX.com (my site).

          Thanks for the assistance.
