database export question

Post by notaloafer »

Hey I was wondering (In preparation of the final release of phpBB3) how to export my database's bare minimum. I have a bunch of phpBB3 MOD's installed and I don't want to export their messy development tables as well and was wondering if there is a simple way to get the bare bones of my forums exported (forums, posts, users, and anything else you can think of)....


Thank you!

You can do that via phpMyAdmin. You will have to speak to your web host if you do not know what that is and find out how to login to it from them.

phpMyAdmin will allow you to backup parts of your database, backup your entire database(s), and restore them as well.

I host my own forums, but I wanted to know specific tables that I need to export so that I don't get all the nasty junk exported with the forums.
