Question Test board


I am trying to make a copy of my live forum and set it as a test board.

I have created a new database and added all files to a new folder
and also changed the config file too.

My only problem is importing the database to the new database that I created.

I have downloaded a copy of my live forum database but do I just rename the
database file I downloaded to the new name or not?

Thanks for any help

PS. I already have my test board hidden from the public before anyone jumps in & says

Here is info on importing the database from the manual:
Restoring The Database via SSH/Telnet or
Restoring The Database via phpMyAdmin

Just make sure the database name you put in the import line is your test database name, not the main site database name.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)
