PHPBB files where statistics are stored

I temporarily moved my PHPBB site to a Virtual Private Server and I'm currently transitioning back to a shared server after about 3-weeks.
I'm trying to understand where PHPBB stores statistics and other data so I know which files to copy back. I didn't change any code or templates.
I did add a few posts and my site/forum statistics certainly have changed as users hit on specific topics.
Is everything mostly stored in the PHPBB database? Or are their log files that get updated with site/forum statistics that I should backup and restore
back to my shared server. Right now I'm just planning to export the database on my VPS account, delete and database on my shared server and then import
the new database onto the shared server.

PhpBB does not store any data in files. It is all in the database.

The files never change, other than backup files and avatars and attachments. It is all in the DB.
