  • Bring back old posts from an old database archive?

    I have a CD with an old .sql file of vbulletin. I think this was back in the 2.x days. Is there a way to use this and bring back some posts to put into an archive in my 3.x board?

    You could restore that backup to a new database, then use the Impex import system to import the data to your new forums.

      Thank you, but is it possible to import just the posts? I would imagine some sql hacking might have to be done here.

        Yes, I believe you can import just the posts. However if you don't import the users, then the posts will be assigned to Guest.
