    How do I only back up members, posts and the catagories of my forums?

    I want to create a totally new forum with just that stuff..

    And how do I upload it when I get the new forum up?

    It might be possible to backup that information by only backing up specific tables, but you will probably run into difficulties because many tables are connected to others through specific fields.

    Two alternatives would be:

    1) Restore your entire database, login to the Admin CP, and delete the content you don't want to keep.

    2) Do a new installation and use ImpEx (available in the member's area) to import between the installations.

        Backup your database and restore it to a new database. You are basically copying your database. Instructions are available at these links:
