I run a discussion board using phpBB and very good it is too. I converted from ikonboard after they stopped having upgrades. Actually that's not entirely true, I started a new
Board because I was put off exporting the ikonboard database because it is HUGE! And instead I use it as an archived forum.
The problem has come up in that I had to migrate servers, and after the migration the old Ikonboard forum isn't loading - it has a problem accessing the database and neither the host company nor cpanel can solve it.
So another option that I've considered is, is it possible to set up a phpBB board that can access the existing ikonboard database without getting into the old ikonboard admin and exporting it first? Or is there someway I can modify the database without ikonboard running?
Very many thanks for any help you can offer.
I don't know if I've explained that very well by the way
it's all about to happen..
