    It has never been a feture in any version of vB. Obviously though, since this info is stored in the database, then backing up and restoring the db woul also restore the settings.

    I think this is a good idea though and I suggest you post this in the vB3 Suggestions forum for consideration by the Developers.

    I'm curious if its possible by backing up and restoring a certain table or two??

    This is lame. I have multiple new vb's I'm going to be setting up. It sure would be nice to be able to replicate the setup easily on each one. I DO believe this was possible in vb 2.XX

    Exactly.

    It doesn't save all the options from the options section.


    I wonder if just backing up and restoring your entire database would do the trick?

    Doesn't help

    It only saves the defaults not user input admin options.

    Tried it on my development board. Works very fine But wow - what a mass of options you get there in addition to all the options there are already. That's pretty impressive

    It doesn't hurt to at least try it out, save to hard drive and open the .xml file and see what it stores.

    Debug modus? Have to remember this for any future upgrade. Could save a lot of time

    Not sure which settings you mean (got a bit of a headache and am about to part for a while - but still wanted to try to help you out.), but run your site in debug modus and you will see addtional options import/export settings in the admin control panel > vbulletin options > vbulletin options.

    You can set debug on by finding ?> in the config.php file and adding (ON A NEW LINE BEFORE THIS ONE) this text:

    $debug = '1';

    (don't run your site in debug all the time, it can increase security issues.)

    The styles are downloadable.

    Admin CP -> Styles and Templates -> Style Manager -> Down-/Upload Styles

    The options however not. We managed it like this: We set up a beta-board - changed all options to our needings. Then we upgraded and opened two windows. In the first the Admin CP of the beta-board, in the second the Admin CP of the production board and step by step transferred all settings - which is of course more easy when you use two screens

    How do I save all my options?

    I want to get everything setup and ready to go in my vb3 options including users rights, user groups, icons, ... well you know..., all the options. Then I want to save these options to a file. Then when I'm ready to upgrade, I can just run the upgrade script, load my saved style files, and load the options and I'm in business. Anybody know how to do that? Looks like the only thing we can't save right now are the options.
