Hello all ! I have been doing a lot of reading in regards to my dilemma. I have a board (PHPBB 3.0.4) that is very old and precious to it's members, somehow I would like to upgrade to the current PHPBB3 or if not possible just install the same version. Our ISP is upgrading it's servers and getting rid of the one the board is installed on, so I need to transfer to it. So far I've tried to backup up the old board (successful) and attempt to restore (unsuccessful) via from 3.0.4 to 3.3 using just phpbb3, via phpmyadmin, via bigdump, via adminer. All failed to transfer. I could backup the database and file structure and did copy ALL the /forums files via FTP. I've tried using compression, just text, everything I could think of ! the db is around 44mgs so I though phpmyadmin could handle it but not so. And bigdump isn't working with phpbb3.3. As for Adminer, I get errors saying db can't be found yada yada. One thing that did happen is when using myphpadmin, it could import around 3/4 of the tables and that's it. I tried importing new and also importing into a blank db to no avail. IF all I could do was to even install the old version of phpbb3.0.4 I'd be so happy. If anyone could possibly point me in the right direction or even if they know of a service that would perform the transfer, I would be extremely grateful !
Thank all !
