Yes you should be able to .... with 1.6 use the convertor to phpBB3.0 then update to 3.1

Import your board and make the conversion, the same as if you were doing it live. Make sure that the PHP version in your local set up is compatible with the version of phpBB you intend using.

I created a new database from http://localhost: 8081/phpmyadmin

I copied the backup file of my mybb forum in the xampp folder

on xampp, shell and then I tried to import my backup with this command:

Code: Select all

mysql -u root -p [b]name of database[/b] < backup_86839.sql
enter
enter password:
enter

than i have this error:

can someone help me ?

thanks
