Post subject: Moving Site and Going from 2.0.17 to 2.0.23

Hi there,

First post so please be gentle.

I have been running a forum for about 5 years now vwkd.com running version 2.0.17 and the guy doing my hosting doesn't want to do it anymore icon_sad.gif

Anyway I now have some new hosting but it has php 2.0.23 on it. TBH I am fudging my way round and don't really know what I'm doing but so far this is what I have done.

I have exported my db from my old hosting in separate tables onto my PC. The problem I have is that when I try to import them into the blank DB I've created on my new hosting I get constant errors with fields not existing eg user_allowhtml and so on... so I created the req'd fields (this is just on the _users table btw) and now I get an issue with duplicate entry for username_clean which doesn't even exist on my old DB.


I am totally lost on this and help/pointers much appreciated on what I should be doing to achieve moving my site from 1 hosting to another.

Although my version of PHPBB is well old the site does as I intended and don't really care too much for upgrading... but if I have to then now will have to be the time.

Thanks in advance.

First of all, try using mysqldumper to export and then import the DB-content.
That could solve some of the trouble!

So, export on old hosting (mysqldumper), import on new hosting (mysqldumper), then run the upgrade-skript for the database provided with the phpBB 2.0.23-package.
