  • Data import from vbb 1.1.5 to vbb 2 ??

    I know its a strange question, but can somebody please explain how to do this?
    The main problem is that I dont have access to the server the old board is hosted on. (The admin with the access to the server has disappeared on us!? )

    I have access to both controll panels and the new host server.

    I have tried the import member/forums option in the controll panel - that didnt work

    Is there a way to do this?


    Thanks for reading

    Well, what about installing an old 1.1.x version onto the new server, use telnet or an importscript to import the data into mysql and then just upgrade to vB2.0 ?

    That's not an easy way... and maybe not the best... but it should work

      would this not require accessing the mysql database on the old board? and didnt he say he could not access it due to the main admin being nowhere around and he doesnt have that info to get in? hmmmm sounds to me like all ya members will be reregistering heh
