  • Transporting Forums, Threads, Users, etc.

    I switched servers recently, and I was wondering if you could tell me a way to transport threads, users, etc. from one host to another.

    Thanks in advance.

    Backup the database and the files from the old account
    Move them to the new account.
    Restore the database into a fresh new database.
    Update config.php to point to this new restored database
    Don't run install.php or upgrade.php

    And you're done.

      "Don't run install.php or upgrade.php"
      Oops

      Can you please clarify what you mean by "restore the database into a fresh new database"

      Thanks.

        just like i posted.

        you have a single .sql dump file as backup
        you make a new db, and restore this .sql into that.
