In progress How to import users from old forum after new forum creation

Post by zambr123 on August 23rd 2014, 11:29 pm

Hi, I have 2 SQL files (users and user groups) which were created by exporting data from my old phpBB forum. I would now like to import them into my newly created forum here.

Any suggestions?

Thanks


Note: I have seen the post about performing this process during forum creation process, but my forum is already created now.

User Group file isn't needed really as I know only certain users need promoting from lowest default level.

Hello right now there is no way to do this until maybe monday when our pro admin come online then she may have some way of doing this for you as i have seen this posted before but just can't find it right now but she is the only one that can do that sort of thing as we have no rights to server side tools i will pm her and ask her to come read this thread.

The best thing would be to ask your members to register on the new forum.

Hello Zambr

First of all thanks for your trust Wink

For the moment, the only solution is to create a new Forumotion forum and use the step 4 to import your old forum. It is the simplest and fastest solution.
If any questions feel free to ask

Best Regards
