  • Exporting Users

    I am setting up a test database and I want to export all current users from my current database , directly into my test database.
    Is this possible through Admin CP and if so which tables do I need to export how do I restore them using phpmyAdmin

    I did try something a couple of weeks ago but although the users appeared in the member list of the new database when I tried to find their details in admincp I got the message "No such user"

    I want to be able to do it so that they can log onto the new database with the same password and without the need to re-register.

    A step by ste guide would be appreciated by a dummy like me

    It would be best to dump the database and restore it to a new one if you need to setup a test database.

      Problem is my current database is very large and I don't have the space to dump and upload the old DB. Is there no way to do what I am asking??

        Try dumping and importing these table:


        This assumes that your test db has the exact same usergroups as your live db.

          You could install vBulletin fresh, and then use impex to import the users.
