Are trying to migrate from another orum system to MyBB? If so, what forum software is it?

If you only have files with .SQL extension the you have something but not the forum software and the files you do have may not be all the data for all the tables.

We need more info in order to help you

Are the SQL files you have the forum content/data as well as the schema (create table statements)?

Do you know which version of phpBB that the forum is currently running?

f the SQL files are complete, then just make a new database/user/password via your control panel or phpmyadmin, and then import the SQL fiels you have to that new database

Then just run the MyBB Merge system and point to the phpBB database you made

Help!!!!

Bummer that the SQL files you have dont have the IF EXISTS statements. You can either find the phpBB3 installation scripts and create the tables with that or you can edit the SQL files you have and remove all the DELETE queries.
