  • Impex: Import via MySQL .sql file from phpBB3


    I am a licensed customer and plan in using Impex to import forum data from my old forum to my new one running VB.

    I have a phpBB3 forum and I have dumped the entire database (both structure and data) via phpMyAdmin into a single .sql file.

    I see in your documentation "sourceexists" can be set to true. Am I correct in thinking Impex can actually process the file vs. having to connect to the database server to accomplish the same task?

    The reason I did this is because it was actually more stable to dump the database than to try to connect to it remotely. The server the existing board is on has some issues (thus my migrating to a new one). Old board shut down, entire phpBB MySQL database dumped, now all I need to do is import.

    Alternately, I can actually upload this database to the same Cpanel server I am running the new board on, -would that be better?
