Can you import a database into phpBB3?

Postby rdomalpalli » Fri May 16, 2008 9:27 pm


I've exported an old mySQL Database from the cPanel on lunarpages into a file.
I'm just about to install phpBB 3.0.1 and I'd like to import the data from the old database into phpBB.

How do I do that? Should I do that directly in the cPanel / or can it be done from the Admin Control Panel in phpBB3?

BTW, I had a Style template in the old database, that's not there in the new one. I guess I should upload the old style template directory to the styles directory before starting the phpBB install.... Right?
