    You should be able to simply rerun the module in ImpEx.

    yeah i disabled the plugins via phpmyadmin and then i run everything on the Tools.php script and it works. Now i have to find out how to import the remaining posts from the temporarily created database to my "live" database which is where the forum resides. I have to use impex as it says in the reply above.

    Try using your tools.php file from the do_not_upload folder to rebuild your datastore (try running the top 6 or so options).

    thanks i will try that tomorrow.

    Adding posts to a specific from an old database

    Is this possible to do as i accidently deleted over 10,000 posts. But yesterdays backup will have the posts that i deleted.

    I don't want to install the whole database as that would remvoe posts made during the time it was backed up and now!!!

    thanks in advance.
