View Full Version : phpBB - tricky situation
12-08-2004, 08:30 AM
Has anyone moved a phpbb forum over to a new domain before? Have tried the obvious back up of database and then loaded it to the new domain database which didnt work, tried this through the admin panel and phpMyAdmin.
lol yeah man that was a nightmare, I had to download table by table in phpMyAdmin and then re upload table by table.... It would keep timing out on me if I just downloaded he entire database as one file... Even doing a direct transfer through ssh would time out for me. But you can give that a try if you know how.

If you have access to both boxes you could replicate the mysql server and have mysql transfer the records itself.

Managed to do it table by table with phpMyAdmin. For future reference Atomical please elaborate on the "boxes" method, I didnt get it :confused:

A box refers to a server, normally a computer without a monitor. I suggest you read a book on Linux and or mysql. Jeremy Zwadony's book seems to be a bit advanced, but that's the book that's on my christmas list.

I'm stuck learning php at the moment so learning Mysql as I go along.
