Hi & Welcome,

You can use phpMyAdmin to explrt your forum database and structure. or you can use the built in Backup feature you will find in the Admin CP.

Once you have backed p, you can install a new forum somewhere else and "restore your old forum posts etc. Make sure you change the settings for Domain Script & Cookies when you have imported as they will undoubtedly be different..

Hope this helps,

Des. . . :wink:

Then do it the other way round. Back the database up from the host you dont want and restore it on the forum you want.
This would effectivly turn one forum into another. This would cause you to lose the posts on the forum and would only contain the posts from the backed up restored database.

If you want to combine two forums into one it would be a lot harder (and might not be possible).

you both missed what he said, this is not a phpbb board he has, it is aceboard.

you will have to see if there is a convertor for ace to phpbb and then maybe you can keep your posts, members, etc.

If there's no backup function anywhere then it doesn't really sound possible. You'd have to start it up on phpBB from scratch. Sorry :<.
