Not Solved Is this possible?

Not Solved Bug 
Hi all,

New to MyBB and how it works. I volunteered to take on the setting up of a forum, which I thought would best be served by MyBB, judging by reviews. We've recently been made homeless from an IPB-based forum and the admin there only provided an SQL dump of the forum (so there are SQL files for votes, forums, users, posts and topics, respectively).

The Merge tool only appears to work on live sites, from what I can see. Unfortunately, our old home has been taken offline. I thought that the next best thing might be to set up a DB on our new server and import each SQL dump to that DB. Each dump is represented as a table in the DB. I tried to run the Merge tool and pointed it towards the DB with the imported data in, but the Merge tool just says that it can't find an IPB forum on the server. I'm now at a loss as to how I can restore our community's user accounts, forums and posts etc. Is this at all possible - in an easy-to-do way - in our current circumstances?
