First off sorry for the bad spelling in the title (and post probably)...just woke up!
Well, another day, another problem! As always thanks to all that help me out with my odd questions all the time!
I have a new client that (of course) is switching their hosting over to TCH (I think I'm up to around 10 people who have "made the switch" now!!!), and they want to keep they're old phpbb board exactly the way it is. I know I can backup/restore the database but they are running the old version of the board, i've set up a test board at my site to see if I could transfer it all from a backup of their old board and I just get a timeout error (I think). I don't think the GZip version of the backup is quite working right either...because it says it uploads the file but nothing changes.
It also says "GZip" disabled when you first login to the new version of PHPBB, so I'm guessing that's why!
Is it possible that the database can be restored by sending the sql database to tech support? I've also tried to restore phpbb with myphpAdmin with fairly little sucess (strange issues appeared forever!). I took a look at the database structures and they seem similar...but they are big files (3MB of sql is a little drab to look at!).
I just didn't know if anyone had any thoughts! Thanks!
