  • Which tables I need...

    At first I would like to thank all the people that created this fantastic forum software.

    Recently I have bought a vBulletin license. Now I have to restore a friendís database to this new one, but I have some questions. I donít really know how to make sure the "migration"/restore will be without any problems.

    I have the following questions:
    Which tables do I need for a backup/restore from the "old" database into the new database. This are the things I need to retain:
    Users and user info
    Forum Threads (Topics)
    All posts in the threads
    All attachments
    ?? and other info that needs to be backup-ed and restored into the new forum so everything will work properly! ??

    The V-Bulletin Version of both forums is V 3.0.3.
    The forum of the friend has load of extra templates and styles in it that I don't want/need. Some goes for user rights. I want to start with a "clean" forum.

      You can restore the .sql dump into a database and then upload the 3.0.3 files and you have a running forum.

      From the admin control panel you can manage all the forums, usergroups, styles , etc .. Much less work then importing half the data into a fresh install and working from scratch (which a restore basicly is, you just delete forums, and move users to a different usergroup).

        Oke, thanks for the answer.

        But in de old database, there a lot of customer templates, how can I remove that, he has also old vBindex files (templates) in his database.
        Is the Repair / Optimize Tables enough to do that.
