    Ah ok thanks very much. How about linking to my old db from the fresh install of vb? like editing the config file to point to my old DB...

    Thanks again

    I thought you meant CPanel: http://www.cpanel.com

    You cannot restore a backup from within the vB Admin CP because to run the Admin CP you need to be using the database.

    The only reliable method of backing up and restoring a database is with shell access via telnet or ssh. Please see the instructions here:

    Backup:

    Restore:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/m...ce_ssh_restore

    It would make sense that you can restore a backup made from vBulletin, in vBulletin.. hmm

    Admin Control Panel (vBulletin 3.0.1)

    If I cannot do it from Cpanel, can I just link the newly installed forums to the old database?

    Which version of CPanel are you running?

    I still don't see it. I can back it up, I can back it up to the server, or i can "Help CSV backup of single database table". But I dont see any option to restore.

    In the same section of CPanel that you made the backup from.

    Wait. I read in another post that you can restore your backed up database (done from Cpanel) through CPanel?? How? Where?

    Thanks

    Moving vb to another location on the same server

    I've installed vbulletin into another directory on my server and to a new databse. Then I realized that you can't restore it based on the backup file generated by vbulletin. So now I am wondering, can I just link the new forums in their new location, to the old databse? Do I do this by just editing the config.php and pointing it to my old database?

    Thanks
