I accidentally destroyed a lot of packages on my server and it's pretty much unrecoverable  Dodgy
I want to simply reinstall the whole server and mybb but I have an active forum with a LOT of posts and users. I don't have access to my control panel so I can't download the server backups...

I'm able to access mybb and downloaded a database backup from tools maintenance> database backups which worked fine. I wanted to test this backup on a different server so  I copied the forum changed config and tried to import database but phpmyadmin gives me an error when I try to do this.. 

How can I migrate MyBB without access to phpmyadmin but I have the backup from within myBB forum and the files?
Why don't you just upload phpMyAdmin?

You can download it from here:
https://www.phpmyadmin.net/
