In progress Transferring from free to paid hosting

Post by Juba on September 6th 2011, 12:07 am

Hi all
Not sure where to post this so apologies if in wrong section.
I'm trying to assist a friend who has downloaded the free Invision forum but has all the ads and needs to do some optimisation work.
Would it be advisable to transfer to paid hosting and by doing so will this get rid of all the ads and pop ups he's getting on the forum?

Basically any advice on what's involved to transfer the existing forum from its current free hosting to a paid option would be appreciated.
The forum is :

Thanks

Thanks, he did mention that but how can I access the files to optimize them for the search engines? Any ideas?

Hi, please also note that you are not able to transfer your forum to another host because Forumotion does not hand out its databases. Smile

So what you're saying is if someone wanted to do a fresh install of the standard phpbb on a paid server and was prepared to pay for the database, it would not be possible or is there any options open to the forum operator?

Unfortunately, even if someone was prepared to pay for the database Forumotion would still not hand it out. This is Forumotion's choice to do this and I can't really do much about it. You can read more on the database here: http://help.forumotion.com/t6668-forumotion-s-forum-databases
