    Yeah... that makes sense. I didn't think it through properly due to all the excitement of getting v2

    I was thinking I'd have to make an entire copy of the existing board which would have been a nightmare. I was a bit sloppy when I changed all my templates and I have fully qualified urls and paths all over the place.

    But in practice, all I need to do is install a fresh copy of 1.15 into the new directory and import the important tables, then upgrade.

    By the way, the installation went without problems on vservers.com freedom 300.

    regards

    You can't import posts, you have to upgrade the forum. You can make a backup and upgrade it, customize it and then export the templates. You can then upgrade the real forum and import the templates.

  • Importing VB1.14/1.15 posts into fresh install of vB2

    I've installed the beta to a seperate directory. I intend to leave it here, customise the templates, add hacks etc, then just point the url from my site to the new location. Seems a reasonable thing to do right?

    However, I can find no option to import vB114 posts into the new board. I see the option for UBB users to import. What am I missing here? Please tell me I just overlooked the option.
