Forum Software And Database Backup

Recommended Posts

Ok, i'm trying to change my hosting over to TCH, but i'm having a few (a bunch) of problems. I am trying to get my message board transferred here, and each time i backup the database on my old host to upload here, and have the admins here try to upload it, it brings up an error message:


ERROR 1050 at line 19: Table 'access' already exists


what do i do about this message, and how do i fix it? i am still new, so putting it in the easiest terms possible would be wonderful. i am trying to get this done without losing any information, which is why i need this upload to be successful. Thanks

what forum type?

PHPbb Invision .....


Do you have cpanel on old host

If so on old host > cpanel > backup > click on the database link to download a compressed file to your computer

here on TCH after you install a forum with the same database name

and then cpanel > backup > upload the same database.

Or you can download the forlder with your forum and upload it here and restore the database in cpanel > backup ? upload.
