I have a active forum with lots of posts etc. I am currently trying to move hosts so I need to transfer the data from the phpbb board.
I did a full back up of my site via the ACP panel, selecting all the tables and saving it as a text file to my desktop.
I installed a fresh version of phpbb on my new hosting and uploaded the text backup to the store folder via ftp.
I went to the acp on the new site and selcted the file to restore. It restored, I went to look at the forum on the new site, and nothing has changed it's exactly the same as what it looks like when you do a fresh isntall.
Um am I missing something? Or doing something wrong here? Im not great with all this techie stuff
