  • something things i need to know before..

    i buy vbulletin.

    1. i have woltlab burningboard atm is there a really good 2.3.x converter to vbulletin for it?

    2. last time i checked vbulletin dose not have a restore detabase option. and my host dosent support importing deta bases only exporting.

    so in the new 3.6.0 can you restore deta bases.


    if its yes to both of those all have a lisence vary soon. thanks.

    1. wBB 2.3.3 is listed as one of the importers:

    2. No, there is no way to restore a database from within vB for the simple reason that you need to be using the db at the same time. The only reliable method of restoring a database is with shell access via telnet or ssh. Please see the instructions here:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/m...ce_ssh_restore

    Note: Some people have reported success with these scripts:

    MySQLDumper:

              I can't tell you in detail, but it should import most data.
              I imagine sections, posts, threads and users for usre, polls most probably.
