  • How do I transfer forum to new server?

    I need to transfer my existing forums to a new server and need to know the best way to go about doing this with the least amount of problems.

    Should I simply ftp all the files to my computer and then ftp them back onto the new server? What is the best way to backup the database? Also I'm currently running version 2.6, would it be better to upgrade to the latest version and then transfer the forums, or can I upgrade after everything has been transferred?

    Here is a guide for moving servers ( ).

    If it was me I would transfer the database first, then upload the 2.2.9 files on your new server and run the appropriate upgrade scripts after the forum was transferred.
