  • DB's and Reinstalling- Please Help

    Alrighty- here's my dilemma, thanks in advance!

    I had the echohype forums up previously and had lost the server, so I got the vb.sql - database file(with all the users and such) and the echohype.tar(all the files on the server and forum junk)

    What I'm wondering is can I restore all of it back online now that I've got a new server? Please be as specific as possible. Also, I'd appreciate it if you included on how to go about upgrading it as well, since it may be different.

    Upload the .sql and .tar files to your new server. Untar your vB forum files. Then run the database restore procedure in Step Three on this page:

    To upgrade, follow the instructions here:
