Not sure if this is the right forum to post this or whatever but....

 

I am trying to learn more and I am trying to perform a transfer of forum software.

 

The thing is I have two questions

 

One is that it says

installed on your server, as well as a copy of the database of the forum to be merged on your server.

 

OK so how do I make a copy of the database?

 

Than it says I need to

You must also have the latest version of the merge system uploaded to your server as a subdirectory

 

So do I create a subdirectory through the FTP for the new forum software?

 

I could post these questions I suppose on the site of the new forum software that is probably what I should be doing anyways. LMAO but remember I am not all there LOL

Create a MySQL backup of the database and then upload it to whatever account you want the database restored to and we can do that for you. Then you would have both databases on the account.

 

What are you trying to do in the end, as in what do you have now and what is the goal when you are done with the process?

Well I am trying to transfer the software from www.soberodaat.com/forums from vbulletin into the new software. :) LMAO I did make the database backup I guess I just am not familar with what I am trying to do...I have never done it and it really doesn't matter if it goes haywire LMAO we only have 8 or 9 members on that forum and I did email them. but I still would like to do this and save the data and be able to convert it to the new forum software. Am I making any sense?

 

I am trying to upload the files here but the wireless internet that I have is really slow

Well I guess not so fast :) It all came together the categories were there, the threads that were started and posted are there but when you click on the thread it says that the thread does not exist. So I guess I am confused. I am going to try it again I suppose. I am not sure why the post didn't show up. I didn't create a copy of the data base but when I was going through the process it only asked about the name of the database. humm it don't look like a forum right now because I have it set at forum1 but you can see it here www.soberodaat.com/forums1 I still have everything from the origional forums Sober ODAAT Forums

If you need any help with this I can give it a try, obviously I cannot guarantee anything when it comes to this but I will try! :)

Well I have done it over and over again and just decided to give it up and start a new on it today. I have another project that I am focusing on and it of course is all new to me. Trying to figure out how to just have the new registers of the forum have to pay for subscription to the register. LOL I figured if I charged on the register than there would be less of those annoying people to deal with. Thanks

LOL, generally making a service that is often free a paid service will help you build a higher quality userbase but it could kill new signups all together.

well I look at it like this. I have a few that think it would be good, to insure privacy and if that is what it does and they are willing to build a site that is up to them. It is site that no one under the age of 19 is allowed to join anyway. :) now have to figure out how to get that thing for the flashchat that I have in order to have live web cam chat :)
