restore a backup from other forum

Post by JasterM5 on March 1st 2012, 7:49 pm

I used to have a forum using a different free host. However that host went under and I was forced to make a backup using the phpbb3 backup. Is there a way to restore that backup on this forum so i have all my data back? I'd hate to have to recreate the entire forum and have members start from scratch on on it.

It seems that the restore function here does not allow to restore from a file.

I believe the only way it would be possible would be through Forumotion's database which Forumotion administration does not let their users into, so I don't doubt that this topic will soon be locked.
