How to transfer your forum to another host (Tutorial)
Hi All,

After alot of trying to get the right way to transfare the forum between defrent servers using PhpMyAdmin to import the DB, or BigDump, every time I get kind of errors, in PhpMyAdmin only in my localhost, it's telling me, that "Worning, failed to modify header information. in the remote host, alot of errors,

So at least that the best solution I get, with nice script.

1-Disable all of your plugins.
2-Turn your board off untill we get the backup.
3-In the ACP>Backup Database,
a-File Type = Plain Text
b-Save Backup = Download
c-Backup Contents = Structure and Data
d-Analyse and Optimise Selected Tables = Yes
e-Press Perform Buckup, and save it on your PC.
4-download all your forum files via FTP to your pc, and upload it to your new host.
8-Download this great script from here
9- extract it,inside it folder called backup insert in it your db backup (the db from your old host0 and upload it to your new server,
10-If your datebase server name not "localhost" then you have to edit the dumper.php file and find

define('DBHOST', 'localhost:3306');

replace "localhost" with your DB server name.
11-go to
12-In the 1st Field the DB user name, 2nd Field the DB password. look at the following pic for more explain.

Now you done, all you have to do now to go to your ACP in the new server and set your General Configuration, and re active your plugins (recomanded to reupload fresh files of your plugins)
Please Note: don't forgite to CHMOD your require files to be 777
I hope It's work without any problem Smile
