    hi, I'm a co-admin with filburt

    I eventually managed to do it without telnet

    If you use phpmyadmin to create a dump of every table (structure and data) on the old server, then run each .sql file through phpmyadmin on the new host, everything will be faithfully recreated.

    So if you don't have telnet access, there is still hope - it's tedious, but it works

    nope telnet is the only real way

    Good idea! Another one is to ask the host to restore the database for you. They only have to run one command line. It's a 2-5 minute job at the most.

    Heck it's the least they can do for not allowing telnet/ssh!

    Perhaps your host configured your MySQL account to allow remote access. MySQL could be run locally and connect to the remote database (-h option).

    I'm not aware of any reliable method of importing a database through phpMyAdmin. You can try to do a search of 'restore database phpmyadmin' to see if anything pops up. Good luck!

    Moving servers...

    I'm changing servers. The server I'm on right now is my own computer, so I can do anything I want. I made a .sql dump file from within vBulletin.

    The new server does not allow Telnet access, but only FTP and PHPMyAdmin. Since all the instructions for the moving servers guide step 3 require Telnet, how would I go about this using only PHPMyAdmin?
