Transferring A Forum From A Different Webhost

Hi,

A friend has transfered her website to TotalChoice Hosting, however, her forum hasn't made the transition.

 

How do we transfer her forum database to her new server and get it up and running?

 

She has been using SMF 1.0.7 on her old webhost. The forum database and website files are still on the old server and accessable.

 

The only option available is to do a whole site backup through cpanel. Do I make an export file using phpMyAdmin? or what.

 

Thanks for your help.

Please take a full backup of the account from the remote server, then upload it to the account on TCH server and post a ticket at support desk (link on my signature) to restore the forum.

 

Thank you very much for the additional explanation. Although this was not my question, I may need the information in the future.

TCH-Alex, I did another backup and someone at TCH tried to install it, but it didn't work. At least one table was missing.

 

Any other ideas? If I use phpMyAdmin to export the database, how do I install it on the new server?

 

Or can I just copy the database file? Where would I find it. I can't find a file that would be big enough to be the database, at least where I am looking on the old server.

 

Thanks,

Hi Goatgirl! You'll have to share with me the story behind your handle! :shocking:

 

Anyway - please don't stress around this - if you check another forum, you'll see that I'm off doing something else.

 

I didn't see the missing table on the old server either. :unsure:
