  • Struggling with move to new server

    I'm upgrading from 2.0.3 to 2.2.8 and moving servers. I've done the dump through the admin control panel and moved it to the new server. The old board is on Interland and I've requested a dump 3 times, each time getting imcomplete data. They don't allow telnet/SSH so I'm hoping the dump through the admin panel is complete.

    I've successfully installed 2.2.8 and created the new database. It's on the import of the backup data that I'm stuck.

    I have the file I'm trying to import into the database in a directory at the same level as the board files.

    public_html/forum for the board

    public_html/forum_all holds the file I need to import.

    commands I used at the promp:

    mysql -umydomain.com -pmydatabasename < /forum_all/forum.sql

    I get: bash: forum_all/forum.sql: No such file or directory


    What am I doing wrong ?

    As the error message indicates there is no /forum_all/forum.sqp directory and file. You need to either:

    1. Run this command from within the directory containing forum.sql:

    mysql -u mydbusername -p mydatabasename < forum.sql

    or

    2. Use the full and complete path to the directory containing forum.sql. Note that 'forum_all' is a subdirectory of directory that's a sub-directory, etc. On Unix/Linux systems you can find the complete path name by going to that directory in question and typing:

    pwd
