Merge two phpbb3.1 forums into one

Post by pastilles » Sat May 21, 2016 11:21 am


I recently inherited a MyBB forum which was converted to phpBB3.1. I'm now looking to merge with another 3.1 forum.
Is this possible? Can't find much here for help regarding this

Thank you,

Whilst it is not impossible it is not something that is easy either. You would have to have a good knowledge of both sql queries and phpBB database structure - and plenty of time!

It may be preferable to just leave the "old" board as an archive and not allow any postings to be made to it.
