I have PHPBB 3.0.12 at old hosting and i wanted to move whole forum to a new hosting server which only supports latest version 3.2.1. I upgraded the PHPBB version at old hosting through this link viewtopic.php?f=556&t=2402101
. Then I took whole forum backup from old hosting through Cpanel. I also did fresh installation of 3.2.1 at the new hosting. I have two questions:
1- The version of Cpanel is not the same on old and new hosting, is that a pre-requisite for whole forum restore through cpanel?
2- I have also downloaded the backup of home directory, database, emails through cpanel from old hosting. Now when i try to restore at the new hosting through cpanel, i upload the backup through browser and sometimes my internet connection is reset and whole upload is lost. Can i do this through FTP? I got both the old and new FTP.
