    Alright. I am curious. Would this work?

    Go to admin cp, save the database on my harddrive everything set to yes.

    Download my graphics of my current server, transfer to new one.

    Install vb. Import the database.

    Now, with my graphics and everything overthere, this should, in theory make my site like original?

    Mine is around 2 MB which seems about right for a small forum (only a few hundred posts).

    I've been using the single step backup method from the CP to save the .sql file to my local system. Is this not a good way to backup VB?

    The most reliable way to backup and restore a database is outlined in Steps One and Four on this page:

    Could you eloborate? How is this better than saving the .sql file to my local disk directly from the VB CP? What are the dangers? Is one a more complete backup?

    What about a page like that for those of us without telnet?

    I think you misunderstood the instructions. You're not supposed to have a directory named 'chmod 0777'. You supposed to ensure that the directory you want to write this backup to is modified to have full writing privileges. To do this, you need to 'chmod' the directory to 0777. (You can do this in C Panel or from the command line.)

    started a topic About backups

    About backups

    Ok, I'm planning on doing my first backup of my vbulletin.

    I see there are three choices: Download the .sql file to my comp's HD, save .sql file to server or CVS dump.

    Now, I remmeber some time ago that for a backup a lot of stuff had to be done with a telnet system and some other complicated stuff...what happend? am I looking at the right thing?

    And if I download the sql file, is that all I need to re-create my vbulletin in case things go bad for some reason?

    One more thing, what's this CVS, should I do it, and do I need to do it for every single database separately? Isn't there a way to do it all at once?

    Those are a lot of questions...I'll stop here.

    thanx
