Can i move just members to a new phpbb

Post by alex@ssc »

I recently lost my whole forum so got a new one but now i have recovered some of my members from the old database! Can i move these over to the new forum on their own.

Thanks for any help

Erm....I dunno. It's possibile...

Try this:

Reupload the old database file.

When installing phpbb, make sure it's the SAME database name as the old one, and the SAME database password.

I'm pretty sure phpbb won't reoverite the data, however, it's possibile it would.

I'm not saying this is foolproof, you can give it a go, though.
