  • import users from other DB deleted existing one ??

    Dear vBulletin,

    I have a question which is how to avoid existing User being deleted after importing Users from another database. Sorry for poor English.

    Example:
    1. Domain A is active forum with thousand of members.
    2. Domain B is in-active site with thousand of members too.

    Both site powered by vBulletin 3.x .

    When i import "User Group" & "User" from Domain B db to Domain A db, existing User in Domain A db was whipped out. How can i avoid User in Domain A db not being deleted ??

    All suggestion and opinion are welcome.

    Impex does not wipe out existing users when used properly. Please explain exactly what you are doing.

        Yep, that would do it.
