Is it possible to migrate forum?
« on: August 10, 2014, 03:09:11 pm »
Let's say i decide to purchase hosting elsewhere and add SMF to it, would it be possible to take my old CAF (members,posts,layout,etc) to the new space?
My main concern being member accounts since i know people don't like needing to re-register.

Also since i added a domain name, would removing it take long? (i think adding it took about 24 hours before it worked 100%)

Possibly but we use a custom setup and can't provide support beyond the backup file.

So if I got someone skilled/knowledgeable in html/css, it could be done?
