If you get a timeout or size limit you need to split the files with something like bigdump or manually. But this is only for big databases.

You first need to go to your old webhost. If they have phpMyAdmin, export the database. It should give you a file like something.sql if I'm not mistaken. That one should contain all the querries to build the database.

Afterwards create a new database in your DirectAdmin account on Frihost. Log in with the username/password you gave it to phpMyAdmin and import the old database there.

If the database isn't too big, then this 'easy' way should be working.

You may have to update the MySQL password. Check directadmin, and make sure they are the same as the old host.
goodforum
the passwords are the same

i see what's happening...
'25279@localhost' is not my SQL for Frihost....it's the old SQL
how can i change that?
krazycapital
Look at the config.php file. Change the info in that.

is there anything besides config.php that i need to change?
krazycapital
I don't use PHP, so I don't know. Someone that knows PHP please?

It really depends on the forum script you use. I've never heard of BBS not can find it so don't know.

Other places to try are db_config.php includes folders for config or db_config or a table in your database called cdb_settings or something like that
goodforum
where can i find db_config.php and db_config.php and cdb_settings ??
mathiaus
I don't know if they even exist, if you post a link to where you got the script from we may be able to help

Perhaps the user forgot to post an update here, but http://goodforum.frih.net seems to be working fine now.

And it's running Discuz! board (must be what he/she meant by "BBS")
Which is what I guessed when I searched for "cdb_settings" on google.
