Hi.. I want to transfer my mybb forum to other hosting.. But the problem is, my current hosting provider is unreachable. And the biggest problem is, the cpanel account was expired. So i cannot enter to create a backup from phpmyadmin.

Can i use backup from mybb admin panel and restore to the new hosting ??
Yes, you can Smile

The MyBB backup is a MySQL backup, nothing else.
ok thanks.. will try first Big Grin

Hi. there is a question.

can i just download all the forum files and transfer into the new hosting. Then create new database, import the old database and change the database name through config.php ? So i dont need to upload new packages of mybb..
