  • Import vbulletin new posts and threads in an old database


    I have a problem and I am searching for the best support for it, that means from you, even if I know it will not be for free.

    I had a major server problem in November 2012. I lost one year of posts, I was forced to restore a database from October 2011. Now, in May 2013 I got back the database from November 2012.

    What I would like to do is take the new posts I have now (Nov. 2012 - until May 2013) and import them inside the Noevember 2012 old database.

    I would like to import not only the new created threads, but also the new posts from threads opened befeore November 2012.

    Is that possible? I count to your support as I wand to by vbulletin 5 after that maneuver.

    I also sent an e-mail to vbulletin about this issue.

    This is not possible via Impex- it would require custom coding of an experienced developer to achieve this. We do not allow the soliciting of paid requests on this forum. There is a "Request for Paid Services" forum on that paid help can be requested. It is the only forum we have that allows soliciting of paid support.

    ​Please read all the stickies in that forum before posting. Remember we do not pre-screen anyone responding to you so do your research.

    Other customers sometimes find 3rd party free lance sites or other webmaster type forums to hire people capable of a project like this.

    It goes without saying be sure you have backed up all databases, multiple times, before attempting anything like this.
