  • If I want to start over fresh?

    Hello Everyone,

    I have a question, I know how to import users, forums and the like via impex, actually I've done it twice now. Pretty simple!

    and I'm thinking this is what I am going to have to do, but I thought I'd ask here.

    I want to keep the content, and accounts but I want to rip out all hacks and start over fresh. This is easy enough by doing an upgrade ,but that only removes file hacks, all of the DB adddititions stay there.

    Some, but not all hacks come with uninstallers, and it is the ones without that I am having the trouble with. basically some hacks put multiple additions into the DB, and I want to clean them all out, is there a way to get back to the standard vb setup without wiping and importing via impex?

    Thanks for any help or words of encouragement you can provide

    Not really. The cleanest way to do this is to use the Impex system to import the data into a fresh db.
