Post by bryntwr »

How would I go around transfering my site template and all the database to another server?

Do a complete back up of your files, and save the database.

Upload to new server.
Change the database info to the correct info for the new one in config.php

and you should be set.

BAckup all your file to your desktop and install new mySQL to your new server including phpBB3 & your existing template then upload all existing file from your desktop except the config.php because you're having a new configuration to your new mySQL so you don't need that.
I don't know if you're not going to install the phpBB3 will work with your exiting file but for sure you need to install a fresh one.

So basically go to my cpanel and go into my sql and backup that sql file and then go into my admin control panel and backup everything in there?

Open your FTP and backup the whole folder of your phpBB3 content if that is the folder of your forum file... then after you backup the file go to your NEW Cpanel server then create a new mySQL database to have the information that you will be needed when installing the new fresh phpBB3 and the rest is the same with my 1st post

Is that the same hosting server? Then what you need to do 1st is backup all the file and wait till they activate your new hosting server.

Do I then just need to upload a blank config file and restore the mysql db using the name usernames and passwords?
