Description of problem

When the forum was first created I recall something about forum data transfer but cannot see this once forum is created. I have "3474751_admin_conversations_dataCSV" backup data from the previous forum host, I was admin of for seven years. I also data saved via "Website Copier" in a folder. Question is can I upload the 1000 or so topics with 20 000 posts into this new forum or do I have to just start manually copy and past my posts over from my portable harddrive. It will take many months to do so or can I zip file data over into main boards and then manually sort before opening up the forum for public viewing. Thankyou in advance regards. Smile

STEP 1: You have a self-hosted forum (phpBB, Invision or PunBB)
This is my old site that after 7 years got taken down
http://onehalfgram.freeforums.net/

I only have backed up data "3474751_admin_conversations_data.csv"
or the site saved from "Website Copier" in a folder.

STEP 2: Get the dump of the database
I've created the new site already, with about a hundred boards/topics
https://onehalfgram.forumotion.com/

Question is;
I can't see in the admin panel "phpMyAdmin" of the new site where I could try to import the
"3474751_admin_conversations_data.csv"
"Website Copier" in a folder
Or is this only able to be done/made when the new forum is being created/registered?
Meaning I should forget about the work I've done on the new forum
https://onehalfgram.forumotion.com/
and start over again? Thanks in advance, I feel silly not fully understanding how to go about this, looking forward to your advice/expertise

Hello,

You cannot import information from other company onto Forumotion forums, nor the other way round. This is now a new forum where you'll have to start all over again unfortunately.

Regards,
TC.
