  • ImpEx problem

    I'm trying to import my old forums into my new vBulletin powered board. But every time I try to do the import I get this error:

    "Connection to source server failed. Check username and password"

    Can someone help? My server admin is stumped.
    That's it. If you REALLY can't say ANYTHING nice to me at all on this forum, then I am going to go insanely mad at you. I've had enough of the UNTOLD ABUSE you are all giving me and you should really be CONSIDERATE of other people.

    The most likely cause of this error is that the info in your config.php file is wrong or your db user does not have full permissions to this database. Please read this for all the known causes of this error:

        The ImpEx system now works, but I can't get past the "Check + Update DB" part. How do I get the thing to update other modules?

            Well, it alters the tables, but at the bottom, it displays something resembling this:

            ImpEx Database errormysql error: Invalid SQL: SHOW TABLES

            mysql error: No database selected

            mysql error number: 1046

            Database: source
            MySQL error: No database selected
            Or something like that.
            Anyway, my server admin will reupload the files to a new blank db and I'll reinstall vBulletin from scratch again.
