The SQL databse is hosted seperately by your provider normally and is accessible by using phpmyadmin. You normally have to back it up then export it to move it...Unre4L wrote:this might be a stupid question, but is the sql database kept in the phpbb directory?
If it is, then can you move the whole forum to another server by just copy and pasting the directory?
Would my forum permissions etc remain intact? I have two closed forums I wouldn't want open for any length of time....darcie wrote:Yep. You wouldn't need to even reinstall. Just upload the files and edit config.php to point to the existing database. You can see how to correctly make a new config.php by reading Knowledge Base - Rebuilding Your config.php File.
