What is happening exactly? How far into the upgrade process are you getting?

complete install but it makes a mirror image of my test site

Did you check your site settings in vboptions > Site Name/URL and make sure it is pointing to your real site, not your test site? And the config.php file is different on your real site vs your test site (the database name, etc)?

yes it does show everything on my jeep site all the forums and post and members are gone

If all that stuff is gone, then it sounds like you are pointing to your test site database instead of to your real database. And upgrade cannot just erase all your data. But, if you simply copied the config.php file from your test site to your real site, it will have the wrong database name in it. It will have the test site database name. You need to change that to your real site database name and then do the upgrade.

Dismounted 21 Mar 2008 12:13

Yes, you can use ImpEx. But ImpEx doesn't work with 3.7, yet.
