Converting from another forum?

Post by ezpkns34 on June 3rd 2012, 1:08 am

I've got a forum somewhere else, but do to extremely undependable servers over there, I have to make a forum somewhere else. Is it possible to convert my forum from there to here, or would I have to make a completely brand new forum?

Also, any way I could get the link to my old forum to redirect to my forumotion forum? Would make it much easier than trying to contact all my forum members & passing word of the new forum that way

You would have to start a new forum you can't export your database/posts from the other forum/server.....You could add links in the old forum to the new one though.

Depends, do you have access to your actual server with this other host? If so it would be very easy to move to another server, but NOT possible to move to forumotion. It would also easy to set up your current site to redirect... Or just transfer the domain.
