How to get my posts from one domain to another?

Post by chase_turpin »

Hello

I had a forum on a domain that I no longer have access to. The domain expired and and was removed or deleted somehow.

I sill have all my files and the database on the server.

What do I do to recreate the same forum on a different domain?

Ok i have the new forum installed and I'm trying to follow the guide but i'm confused about how I get the posts into the new forum.

I have a new database do I just need to copy the old database into it?

Thanks for the help

I would be happy if i can just see the text on the 2 of the posts. I just need to get some information off of them. If its really complex to get them back on the forums maybe you could just tell me how to view the content of the posts?

I think I got it all i did was edit the config/php file to point to the old database.

Seems to be working is that ok?
