Can I create a new forum using an existing SMF forum database?
« on: September 28, 2014, 12:53:45 pm »
I'd like to migrate a complete existing SMF forum to this Host. I have a complete MySQL database file, including all the Table definitions.


Can it be done? If so, how?

What version of SMF is in use here?

Thank you. It's from an SMF 1.1.19 messageboard. Does that cause any big problems?

So I can try this Host free with 1.1.19 before I decide to upgrade to paid with SMF 2?

By the way, your Quote button for posting is not working for me. I have to do it manually. Dunno what the size tags problem is about. I didn't do it.
