  • Question on moving VB 2.2.7 to a new server

    I know there is a detailed description but I still have a few questions:
    1) if I am using a back up from vBulletin Version 2.2.7 can I still use the Telnet method described (or does it have to be the newer 2.2.8?)?
    2) Do I have to install V bulletin 2.2.7 on the new server before I upload the backup and run the command on Telnet?

    Thanks,

    You may use the same procedure

    Thanks,

    You can upload the backup to your new server, just make sure it doesnt share the name of the dummy database created during installation

      What is the name of the database when you install VB??

        Its up to you (or your host)

        If you forget what your database name is, open up admin/config.php to see which database your copy of vB is using.
