attempt to restore and update; lost users and posts

Post by ember1 »

howdy all,
same old story. sever crashed. moving to new server and restoring a phpbb2.x and then upgrading to 3.x. In getting the 2.x set up, I have the forum running, but no posts/discussions are present and there are no users. the forum front page says there are 5000+ posts, but when you click into the forum, there is nothing All my tables prefixes are phpbb_, both old and new forum. I looked in the 187-meg total back up of the forum, but I don't see any of the users name or php_users. I looked in the restored database through myphpadmin and there is just one user listed, the new admin account. Am I missing something in this process?
Thanks all!
