TIA

If its in the lounge it shouldn't be a hack.

You can find instructions at www.vbulletin.com

I use phpMyAdmin, your server may or may not have it installed - if not, you'll have to download it and install it manually, of course.

Anyways, if you DO have it do a complete dump of your database and save your .sql file. Once you switch servers, exract that file in phpMyAdmin. That's what I always do, and it works fine. :) I know there are ways you can do it with telnet too, but I'm not posotive how.

Umm, if you have a biog database, phpmyadmin is not alwatys the good choice, as it freezes with big submissions.

yeah phpmyadmin sucks for big DB's, I didn't have telnel or ssh on my old server so I had to back up each file individually. It worked fine but took about 2 hours total.

thanks though guys.

phpmyadmin didn't work for my 1 GB db too. Had to download and upload manually when I moved.

My search table alone had almost 2 million entries and was 700 MB in size.

They are if you enable search. :)

I allow down to 3 characters for search.

This is in a forum with 4,000 members and 300,000 posts.

I'll PM it to you, but you must promise me never to release it to anyone else since I want to keep it private. :)

I think there's instructions on how to move servers in the vbulletin manual?

at the bottom of the tutorial, you will also see the Useful Links section related to moving servers. the process is pretty simple once you get used to it.

good luck. :)
