HI everyone. I've just purchased almost everything I can from IPB to convert and upgrade to IPB.
I'm upgrading from PHPBB, and am VERY glad we're doing it. We operate a pretty high traffic forum. The database back-up from PHPBB was ~800megs. Now I know restoring that through phpmyadmin is just something that will happen. The only reason I was going to restore it is because I wasn't 100% sure of the IPB converter. So what I was going to do, was backup a copy of the phpbb sql, restore it locally on my own webserver, and run the converter and see what happened.
Does anyone have any advice on such a situation? It's imperative that I lose no data. I'm having a similar issue with my gallery, we'll get to that another time I suppose, and probably best talked over with the photopost people on how to back up and restore into the IPB Gallery.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can offer some assistance :D
I replied to this somewhere else. Company forums maybe?
Yes you did. You answered with the command for sql in the command line. What is the best route to execute that both locally, and remotely once I need to restore this on a remote server?
Well to export you change < to >
mysql -u (username) -p -D (database) > export.sql
Then to import
mysql -u (username) -p -D (database) < export.sql
