I want to replace my PHPBB database with a different version.
I found instructions on how to import my database on a new server https://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/transf ... or-domain/
however I've been unable to find specific instructions on how to replace my existing database.
If I run the following command,
mysql -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD --default-character-set=utf8 DATABASE_NAME < NAME_OF-FILE
will it just overwrite everything with the new database or should I delete the old database first.
I don't see an option to delete an entire database in PHPMYADMIN,
Before I mess up anything seriously, I'd like to confirm the appropriate strategy. Thanks
