  • help with installing from backups

    I'm going to back up my old forum (UBB.x) and importing into vBulletin, I want to import and test it out, the only problem is that when I put the server online I'll have new posts and members from the live site by then.

    so the question is, how do I add from a backup without duplicating the posts and members? thanks!

    I'm afraid you can't. Wait until you are ready to do the import for good and close your UBB forums.
