I need help with this script.
We are trying to backup our forum hosted at invisionfree
) and moving it to our own server.
I have my own server where I will be hosting this, and I downloaded phpBB 2.0.23 and set everything up with forum id's and gave it a go.
The script ran fine, but I thought it was a bit quick (We have over 68k posts in our forum and the .sql backup produced was just over a MB)
As I imported it into phpbb I noticed most of the topics where there, however just the first page of every topic!
Did I do something wrong? I'm running a linux server with python 2.5 installed when grabbing the data from invisionfree.
And also another small problem not really related to the script but mysql server and it's character encoding. When I import the sql file either over ssh or with phpmyadmin swedish special characters such as 'å', 'ä' and 'ö' does not work after importing. Is there a good way to fix this and re-importing or do I need to open up the .sql file and search/replace all å with html-code & #aring etc?
Please help me, thanks.
