[Installing] Setting up for a merge later

Not Solved Setting up for a merge later
Detailed description of the problem:
I installed okay, but when I did I used the database that the current forums are using. Since I want to convert from phpBB3 to MyBB, it seems to me now that I should have specified a different data base.

So how do I undo this in order to start over? How do I unlock the install folder?

URL to your forum/URL to specific problematic page:
http://pokemondungeon.com/ghpf/
http://pokemondungeon.com/mybb/

Forum system you are converting from:
phpBB3

Relevant debug logs:
n/a

Screenshot or error text, verbatim:
n/a

MyBB 1.6.5
MyBB Merge 1.6.2
MySQL 5.0.45

OK, a slightly different question.

None of this was covered in the instructions to either, but when you plan to merge/import a forum later and are at the point to create a data base, but already have one, do you create a new database anyway?

This may be obvious to some people, but it isn’t to people who have only been running a forum for a few months.

You need the MyBB forum you're merging to and the database you're merging from, nothing else.

So it’s okay to have both phpbb3 files and mybb files in the same database when I complete the merge?
