How to split the forum ?

I have a forum with 35,000 members and 320 K posts. I like to split the forum and move part of it to another website. I am running vb 4.0.1.

I understand I need to buy a second vb license. That is not an issue.

But I am not sure about how to go about doing this. Once I have a clear picture I will buy the second license.

Let us say I have current site www.abc.com with forums f1-f20.

I like to split the forums as below.

www.abc.com will have f1 to f10.

www.xyz.com will have f11 to f20.

I want to use the same user login database between abc.com and xyz.com.


1) Can I copy current database in abc.com to xyz.com and delete unnecessary forums in both abc.com and xyz.com ? Will it work ?

2) How can I change the mysql data base name in new website xyz.com ?

3) If I use the abc.com database in xyz.com, how do I link the database name to new website ?

4) what setting changes I have to make in xyz.com to make it work with old database from abc.com ?

Pardon me if some of my questions are silly. I really appreciate any help from you all.

What people have done in the past is to clone site A to site B, remove the forums you don't want on A, and remove the forums you don't want on B.
