How? - MinecraftGeek - 2012-10-15

Is it possible to merge a backup of a database?
I've read the merge support so please help...

You can, but you're going to get duplicate threads/posts...

In your backup, open it with a text editor and replace the table prefix. For example, change mybb_ to mybbackup_. When you run the merge script, use this as your new table prefix. You can import the backup into the same schema as your live instance.

So I have a .sql backup from the ACP so I just change it to mybbbackup?

My host are fixing my cPanel...
Isn't there another way to do it?


RE: How? - spork985 - 2012-10-15

What do you mean they are "fixing" your cPanel? What's wrong with it? If it's going to take them a while, you can just upload your own copy of phpMyAdmin from this site:

I think you need a new host...


RE: How? - MinecraftGeek - 2012-10-15

Why would I need a new host they are fixing it...

A new host may help.
