        ok one more question,

        I know vBB have a function to backup the database, but i can't find any function in the Administrator Control Panel that's use to restore the backup database file? I only see the backup function, but not restore..

          There are instructions on how to do it; you can do it with Telnet (by far the easiest way) or through phpmyadmin, which takes MUCH longer.

          BTW, please look at my sig

              Chris (camoboy, here) and I found out that if you dump every table as a .sql file seperately and in phpmyadmin execute each of those .sql files manually, all should be well. I think we had problems with avatars, but that was it.

                We don't provide a restore backup option because in most cases where you need to restore a backup, you wouldn't be able to get into your control panel to access the feature.

                If you have real problems importing, upload the sql file to your webserver and then ask your host very nicely if they will import it for you (only takes them 2 minutes).

                  Thanks for your reply..

                  I have one more question,
                  My forum is currently using UBB6.1.2 and the UBB support user posting different language in the board. Such as Japaness and Chinese coding.

                  Can I work with it by vBB?

                    Theoretically. IIRC MySQL stores stuff in Unicode rather than ASCII, so as long as the browser supports the language, vB should as well.
