  • Server Change with Telnet

    Ok, I'm moving servers and I already installed the vBB on the new server. I downloaded my styles and backed up the databases. What do I do now to restore the data i have to the new server?

      The problem is I don't understand allot that is in that manual. This like:

      machine1$ cd /path/to/yourbackupdirectory

      verify dump.sql is in the /path/to/new area on the new server

      How do I know exactly what my backup directory is, and about the machine 1 and 2? What's that? I'm new with telnet.

          machine 1 = old server
          machine 2 = new server

          /path/to/new = what ever location you want to place you back up file

          i.e. /home/username/public_html or /home/username/web or /home/sites/www.domain.com/web depending on your server accounts root directory setup
