2.0.8 to 2.0.10 with fresh install

Post by Ahheron »

The question is:
I have a full db backup from previous host (still running) and planned an fresh install of 2.0.10 to a new host. I just want to migrate users, forums and posts. No mods, nothing but those three things I mentioned before.
As with full restore I get all the mod stuff etc. in the ACP.
Is there a simple way to do it :?: If not, what would be the hard way :P

BTW, tried to search and end up with nothing, so if this topic is already covered somewhere, I'd really apreciate a link :D

Tnx in advance

Well, simply take the whole backup, then config.php and the images folder and replace those of a blank board with them. If you were using a different style than subSilver on your other board you'll have to set the default_style to 1 and override_user_style to 1 in the phpbb_config table to get it all working :-) This also requires that subSilver was still installed on your old board.

Tnx zeroK, now I remember myself... mod's go through editing php and tpl, not mysql tables (in this case), so I have to reinstall the style anew :lol: stupid me
Have been away from this for too long :-?
