Reinstalling phpBB3 with old database?

Post by alexgamblin »

Reinstalling phpBB3 with old database? I am not quite sure how to do this if anyone could point me in the right direction? or possible to another post or a guide to do this?

I tried reinstalling witht he same database but change the prefix for tables to _1 rather than _ then manually changed the config back? but if you login it send you back so your not logged in? but all the stuff is there? HELP! http://www.trgclan.com (go to forum) if you want to look and go to forum

Hi,

Complete the Support Request Template:
SRT...

How "old" is this old database? Is it from a previous version of 3.0.x, a release candidate or even 2.0.x?

A read of this will give the info needed to make sure you have changed what you need to change:

Your board's URL: http://www.trgclan.com/phpbb3

Version of phpBB3: 3.0.0 (was what old forum was on news is on 3.0.2)

Was this a fresh install or a(n) update/upgrade/conversion (please be specific)? Delete forum files but still have the database? Deleted forum files but still have the database!

Did you use an automated wizard provided by your host to install phpBB? no

MODs you have installed: none
When the problem started: N/A
Your level of expertise (be honest): Ok with normal technical issues just have never recovered forum databases etc.
