  • Backing up my users only

    I am planning on giving my website a make over and rebuidling it from scratch including my forum.
    I would like to keep my users, their info and login/pswds but lose the rest of the forum i.e posts, attachments etc. My VB is updated to the latest version and I was wondering what tables in sql I would need to backup to save only my users details. It would seem obvious by the table list which ones I need to dump, but I am not gonna take anything for granted when it come to backing up.

    I know I could just lose all posts and then backup the forum empty. But the forum has so many mods and themes. That I want to have a fresh install and not have rogue code and tables bouncing about.

    Many thanks to anyone who can advise me on this.

    You cant just backup users, Your only real possiblity would be to take a full backup, restore it to another database, redo the site and impex the users back in.

      That sounds like an excellent idea and good enough for me.

      Many thanks
