Restore a backup from old forum
« on: December 27, 2017, 02:02:45 pm »
I have the free standard forum. Can I restore a backup from a SMF site I used to host elsewhere?

I have the tar.gz backup file ... and I believe it was SMF 2.0, it was only backed up in October so if that was the current version at the time it is what I had.
