Thanks for that info. I have downloaded both the forum folder and the MySQL Database Backup. The forum folder was about 1.61MB but the MySQL Database Backup was only 20KB in size. Does that sound right for the MySQL Database Backup?
Edit: I see the cPanel for Backup also has an option for Full Backups. I guess that could have been an alternative procedure, or could be done in conjunction with the above steps, although it would be redundant as far as backing up of the bulletin board content. Does Full Backups include all html files for web pages, etc.? In other words, does it include all files in a website, including the bulletin board installed from cPanel?
