  • Importing database

    Is there any way to import a backup of vBulletin database? I saw that I can backup the database, but how can I import it again? I don't have telnet/ssh access in the server so I can't give mysql commands from the shell. Can I do anything from the AdminCP?

    There is no way to restore a backup from within the Admin CP. AFAIK the only reliable method is with direct shell access via telnet or ssh. Some have claimed to find a way to restore a table at a time with phpMyAdmin but I have no experience with this method.
