new forum help

Post by zcomman »

First I have tried to search and it is not working at the moment.

I started a new forum on our site due to problems with the site that host out site and want to copy the old members, categories over to the new forum how can I do that if I do not have a backup of my old forum

You can't. You'llneed to recreate it all or take a backup.
Eat recycled food. It's good for the environment and OK for you.

If you have no backup, it's impossible, unless you have a MySQL dump of the data - which is a backup, which you said you don't have.

I did find one backup from the first of the year but every time I try to use it I get page can not be displayed.

Also I am still trying to get my old site backup and had to change the database on the server, I changed the config.php file to direct it to the new database but am getting this error

phpBB : Critical Error

Could not query config information

DEBUG MODE

SQL Error : 1146 Table 'hof4x4forums.phpbb_config' doesn't exist

SELECT * FROM phpbb_config

Line : 213
File : common.php

Any help
