  • Transferring database

    I currently have two vBulletin lisences and want to transfer the database from one forum to the other that is on a different server. My current ISP don't seem to want to help, and I have NFI how to do it reliably.

    What is the easiest way to get this done? The database itself is about 80mb.

    And here are the instructions on how to restore the backed up database :

      I've got the database across to the new server but can't follow the instructions to get the new database to function with the new forum. I have phpMyAdmin version and there is no browse box. I also don't see how that will get the database to function with the new forum.

        Upload the .sql dump to your account with ftp
        and ask the host to import it into a new database, with a new user and a new password
        then update the config.php file to point to this new database
