    The most reliable method of backing up and restoring your forums is through shell access via telnet or ssh. This is because backing up with a PHP script like that in the Admin CP can result in timeouts errors and an incomplete backup file. The recommended backup procedures are explained here:

    how to backup a database?

    I have the backup .sql file of the forum, it's 30Mb. And doing all the queries at the same time seems impossible (timed out). So is there any function so that I can tell vB to reload from that file (stored on the server together with vB) without copying and pasting..?
