It's been a long time since I last ran a phpbb forum, and that was on a windows 2000 server running phpbb 3.0.x according to my backup readme. I did save a few backups in gz from the old forum. Backup file unzipped is just under 40megabytes
Anyhow, I tried copying my old windows backup to the linux backup, which it wouldnt recongnize the file. So, I made a backup of the new database and then renamed my old backup from windows to the new backup name and deleted the new backup file. It then recongnized it and I attempted to backup
old file name from backup 02-11-10-phpbb_db_backup_sql.gz
new backup filename from linux server backup_1485255474_3553b9d3f85d3231.sql.gz
I came up with these errors
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]
Unknown column 'post_edit_cnunt' in 'field list' 
INSERT INTO phpbb_posts (post_id, topic_id, forum_id, poster_id, post_time, poster_ip, post_username, enable_bbcode, enable_html, enable_smilies, enable_sig, post_edit_time, post_edit_cnunt) VALUES('2587', '350', '14', '2', '1177403028', '43bd6bd6', '', '1', '0', '1', '1', NULL, '0')
FILE: (not given by php)
LINE: (not given by php)
I'm really hoping there is some way to get my windows backup converted to the linux.
I'm definitely inexperienced at this, and have forgotten most of what I know. I've been going through guides, and have reinstalled the linux phpbb a few times after breaking the database trying to restore with my windows file.
I have searched with no luck, but if you do have links to what I am doing, much appreciated.
