Solved Transfer of Ownership

Post by aowlthd on May 30th 2010, 12:11 am

Our forum supports a gaming clan of 40+ and growing. There are about five "admins" that have access to the ACP, but only one guy that handles all the forum set-up, graphics, etc.

My question is this, if the person that originally created the forum account leaves and/or cancels this account are we in the dark? Would we have to start all over again from scratch, or is there a way to transfer the account to someone else?

We just want to protect what we have so far, so any help or suggestions here would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

The ownership would only work if the owner gave you the info to log in on he's account and password then you would have to change the info when your in there to your's
or if the owner was to just up and leave you could ask Typlo to change it over for you but the old owner would have to be off the site for something like 6 months before he will help you on that one.

So your best bit is to have a word with the owner of your site and say that if hew was to leave could you / some other admin take it over and then you have he's/her word on it Wink

~Hope i was of help~

OK, well since my last post, the person that started the forum has somewhat moved on, and he hasn't offered to supply the account info. To help keep us moving ahead, a new forum was started that is nearly identical, but ownership will be handled differently this time.

With that said, is it possible to port over or sync together all the posts on the current site to the new one?

Thanks for all the help so far!

Sorry no data can be transfered to any forum or host. We don't have access to the database and Forumotion doesn't transfer it.
