  • Database import

    I have installed a fresh install of VB 3.6.

    I have an old database i wish to import to the new forum.

    I downloaded impex but i am unsure how to get the old data into the new.

    the data i have from the old forum is a backup, like forum.sql.

    I know how to edit the impex config.php file but it looks like it is trying to attach to a source and destination database.

    We got hacked by a deface artist who put up some propoganda on the website and apparently they came in via the forum so i had to start a fresh as it trashed most of the old files.

    I still have the old data in a mysql directory untouched. Any advice that could be given would be appreciated.

    You must import that SQL file into a database that is a different database than you are importing into. If your web host only allows you to have 1 database, you could use table prefixes.
