uploading an already modified phpbb3 forum on a web server

Post by JAN8 » Wed Nov 03, 2010 9:08 pm

Hello!

I have installed and modified the layout of the phpbb3 forum on my machine, using Xampp as a server.
I will be very glad if somebody tells me if it is ok to upload this already installed and modified phpbb forum on a web server or do I need to upload the original phpbb3 map with all the files in the original form and then perform the installation on the web server again?

thanks,
Jan

No, all you have to do is to upload the files, create a new database and edit the config.php file to point to the new database. Then import the local database. You will have to edit the cookie and server settings appropriately. You can do that before importing the database through the local ACP, or after, by editing the config table.
