    Is there something that I can to to maybe go back and get them to recreate the file in a useable format? I can't work with 300 different directory files like this... What should I be asking them for?

      These all go into one directory - the directory containing your vB database files. You are going to have to do this before you can do annything else.

        Ok...

        I've uploaded the file "orangema_vbulletin.tgz" to the server then. What I don't understand from this point is how to manipulate this file to unpack in into said directory.

              Don'ty take this the wrong way, but I strongly suggest you either get your host to do this, or hire someone strong in server skills to take care of this for you.

                read section #2 of the guide i wrote at http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=69803 would outline the manual way to backup database, which also outlines how to get from the *.myd, *.myi, *.frm files to a working database

                You'd need ssh telnet on the new server /destination server regardless to be able to get those mysql data files into the correct mysql data partition for mysql to recognise them. For that you may need root server access so need to contact your host and ask them to do this.

                  Hi there, do these settings look ok?

                  I wasn't sure as the binary one under data was set as default but there is no mention in the instructions.

                  many thanks
