  • Restore database???

    Hi there,
    I have backup the database from the forum version 2.2.6. The name of the database is vbulletin.sql. Right now if I am install a brand new forum version 2.2.6 in a different server, how can I restore those database into the new forum that I install in the new server?
    Thanks

    Here is a guide for moving servers. It lists the mysql commands for backing up and restoring your database.

        There is no other reliable method for restoring a backup.

          on the manual, do I have to type and do the exactly thing? or I have to plugin info in some part?
          like
          <LI>Telnet/SSH into machine1, and from the command prompt type the following:
          cd /path/to/yourbackupdirectory
          <LI>Then type
          ftp MACHINE2
          Replace MACHINE2 with the host name (eg. www.example.com ) or IP address (eg. 192.168.0.0 ) of your new server. This should open a connection and ask for your username/password, then it should say ftp>
          <LI>Type the following, hitting enter after each line:
          bin
          cd /path/to/newdirectory
          put dump.sql

          I dont know where is my yourbackupdirectory and the newdirectory is...

            You'll need to change the variables to match your system.
