How to save a whole phpBB forum to XML file?

Post by consuli » Mon Nov 27, 2017 7:42 pm

Hello!

Is it possible to save whole phpBB forum (all the postings of the forum to be specific) to an XML file?

Thanks
Consuli

One of the output format choices in phpMyAdmin is .XML.

Actually, I do not have phpmyadmin.

It is a webhoster preconfigured phpbb forum without root.

I have got a backup of the My-SQL database. But how can I create an XML File with the Postings only? Especially without the "phpbb Overhead"?

If not possible, a full XML export of the whole MY-SQL database (with overhead) would also be helpful.

You should export the entire database (you can leave out the three search_* tables) as an .sql file, if you want any hope of reconstructing the board.
