I take it you didn't look at the merge system page then Undecided

I did looked it but i thought that it will work on a new install of mybb only.

I dont want to lose any of the database in the process.

Well that's the point of the merge system, converts data, otherwise it'd be a bit pointless. I'm quite sure it doesn't need to be a fresh install. Why not try a test run on a localhost first??

No it doesn't need to be a fresh install. It can merge two forums into one at a time, hence the use the "Merge"
