step by step me on this please

Post by frankoamiricano »

If I have existing phpBB install running, it has gone from 2.0 to 2.0.4 to 2.0.6 and I have trouble with this, I want to start clean, I need some help with the data export import.

Clean install scripts will make me a new database and pre-populate with with smilies and other certain data. I will then export my old data form the old system and want to import it, I will need to empty some tables from the new database in order to not get trouble with the pre-existing data on the new install. What tables do I need to empty before I do the import?

you don't need to empty any tables that I know about.
you just need to go to your admin area and choose restore database and browse to your downloaded sql file(s) and do it.
