ok take it easy . go to mysql and delete all table of your databases {name}
then try it again

i only got a input on your post if he removed all the tables in the database it might remove some tables for other scripts such as wordpress so he just have to remove the tables that contain mybb at the begging or the prefix that he used when he installed the forum.


RE: Please Help!! - MinecraftGeek - 2012-10-20

I have a database already on my forum and I want to merge another database into my current one.


RE: Please Help!! - Alban Mulaki - 2012-10-20

@ illusionalp

@ MinecraftGeek you want to merge by phpbb to mybb or what explained it more in first post you said for backup now for merge Confused


RE: Please Help!! - MinecraftGeek - 2012-10-20

I want to merge/restore a MyBB Backup into my current MyBB Forum.


RE: Please Help!! - crazy4cs - 2012-10-20

What's the error? Any screenshot? Are you creating a database (empty one) first and then importing inside it?


RE: Please Help!! - MinecraftGeek - 2012-10-20

So I will explain everything guys Smile
I got my host to try and import a database backup given to me from another forum.
They did it through SSH and got multiple errors.
It didn't merge the database into mine, I tried PhpAdmin and I get an error to do with tables everytime.
