In progress Loading the index from the backup file

Post by starec on November 16th 2015, 2:37 pm

I greet,
want to ask, what should I do if I want to restore from a backup (file with the extension .sql) forum that was created on another server (forum-zdarma.cz). The server, however, now simply is not active and not available. I would like this forum backed thus create (restore) the xxxxxx.slovakforum.net.
I'm no expert in IT technology, so I asked - if possible - a fairly obvious how to do it.
Thank you in advance.
Sorry, used Google Translate.

If you want to restore your forum from an earlier date, you should be able to do it in the forum utilities.

Hello,

Yes, what Andrei posted above indeed the link to the forum utilities. You will need to login to that using the email address and password you used to create the forum Wink.

Thanks for the help,
but my problem is mainly that they do not want to renew the current forum (it runs and is fine), but I want to restore the forum, which was on another server (the server), namely "forum-zdarma.cz". And that's where mine was generated backup. Join utilities can be restored only to a forum that is now active. I do not need this.
I suppose it probably can not do. Or do they?
I hope I described my problem enough - if not, I will try to describe it more fully and in detail.

Was that other forum not a forumotion forum? If so, we can't really help you.

Forumotion forums do not have downloadable back ups and all run on forumotion servers.

The only time we offer a download from one forum to the other is when you first make a forum there is a tool there that lets you take your old forum from some other host to FM's.

other than that there is no other way to use your backup from your other forum host sorry.

Are you wanting to import the other forum into your Forumotion forum?

As stated above, the only option forumotion offers to import an external forum to forumotion is presented when you create a new forum and only when creating a new forum. Wink
