Migration of phpBB 3.0.5. from mySQL 4 to 5

Post by tanrek » Fri Nov 13, 2009 2:05 pm

Hi folks,

I am just preparing a phpBB 3.0.5 forum for the migration to another hoster. At present the forum runs on mySQL 4.1.22, the new hoster provides mySQL 5.0.45-7.

I never made an db upgrade with phpBB before. How does it work? Just export and import the db?
