  • How do I migrate data to new server?

    If we are moving to a new server, and want to take our forum as it is configured to our new server, is there a way to transfer that data easily to the new forum on the new site? (we're just trying to avoid having to completely rebuild all the configurations as we already had them exactly how we wanted them)

    Yes. Backup the database on server a, preferably though SSH. Then restore the database on server b, again preferably though SSH.

      I know most people reside in shared hosting environments. I've had a lot of luck with backupdb(), even with the max execution time of 30 seconds it can bust out a (several hundred meg) backup no problems. I haven't tried doSQL() which imports, but if it's in anyway as good as backupdb() these two utilities will do it all.

      Hope this helps. (Administrator)
      Fansite for RagnarokOnline since 2002. Since I started I've learned a lot. I'm so vastly experienced at PHP I can pretty much code anything.
