    I managed to make a dump of my DB file using the myphpadmin control panel on my first host.

    Now I need to upload this DB dump to my second host again using myphpadmin.

    Could someone help with the upload please, I'm not sure how to do it and have searched for ages and just can't find anything to help me.

    Please don't tell me to telnet to my hosts, coz they don't support it.

    Many thanks.

    http://vbulletin.com/manual/movingservers.html is your friend

    before you do anything double check your got a completed mysql dump from phpmyadmin.. because it's know to timeout and not complete a proper backup

    how large is your forum and database ?

    if you dont have telnet/ssh ask your new host to import your backup for you

      MySQL Database backup

      Thanks for the reply.

      I have read the link you posted ealier, it uses the telnet method, no good to me I'm afraid.

      I did get a full dump, the file is 2.3mb

      I am currently in contact with my host tech support on this matter

        2.3Mb is very small. Are you sure this is a complete dump of your database? How many messages and members do you have?

          OK guys: What if my host does not allow telnet? How do I restore my testboard SQL database backup to the "live" board then?

            Your host probably allows SSH instead of Telnet (Telnet is very insecure). The commands in SSH are identical to the Telnet ones.

              ask your host if they have telnet or SSH (secure form of telnet) access for you, if they don't you need to ask your host to do the restore to a newly created database
