tranfering phpbb2 forum





nam_siddharth
I have installed my phpbb2 forum in a folder. I want to tranfer my forum on another host (this time, not in folder). What changes I will have to make in database. I am using phpmyadmin and MySQL.

From your other webhost, download the whole phpbb forum through FTP (don't install new phpBB on frihost! download the one from your old webhost). Then upload that package to Frihost.

Then go to phpmyadmin on your old webhost, select "Export" --> Select All tables --> Save as a file. Then press submit. Do NOT gZip it or whatever. A normal text file will do.

Create your SQL on frihost, go to phpmyadmin, import the .sql file. Then upload your phpBB forum to a folder. Modify config.php accordingly to your new settings on Frihost.

You are done.
