  • Backup/Uploading DB

    I'm having a serious problem here. Someone just recently, I don't know how, just pruned all my threads from my forum. GRRRRr. Well I have a db backup but for some reason I can't seem to upload it back with my phpmyadmin cp. Keeps on saying error everytime I try. Well it uploaded the first 5 tables but after that it stops and says error...

    Can someone tell me why? And another thing. Well actually the same thing. Is it possible that when I tried backing up my db to my HD it didn't download the db in full?

    First of all, yes it's possible that your backup is not complete. Not necessarily from the download, but more likely if you used the backup procedure in th Admin CP or phpMyAdmin to make the backup.

    Secondly, phpMyAdmin is notoriously unreliably for restoring backups. You're better off doing in from telnet/SSH. Look at Step Four here:
