  • Moving to a new web server

    I'll be moving my copy of VB to a new web server soon, and I was wondering if I could make my current VB into the "test bulletin" we're allowed to have. I just ask because they are on diffrent web servers, but I already made it inactive and its only accessible to me. If I leave it like that and set up the new board elsewhere is it still acceptable?


    Second, I need to backup my database so I can transfer everything to the new board, are there any programs that could make this easier? somebody mentioned somehting called mysqldump or something? Thanks all.

    it would be okay for existing/old forum to become test forum just .htaccess password protect it so only you can access it.

              Then what steps should I take to make my old VB fit the defenition of a test board? I could just strip all my members of their powers and be the only admin while making the board inactive. will that do?

                Turn your board off. That way only you as the Admin can access it.
