So this definitely looks like this is going to happen. So I need two backup files right? The sql.gz back up and the tar.gz back up? Just asking because when I backup my current board it gives those two files as backup.

Would the easiest route just be to have him upgrade his current board to the same version as mine and use the merge tool available?

"Anyway, I don't think I want to do that for a few different reasons.  I don't have an issue with giving up the threads and posts but I don't want to give out peoples personal information(emails and stuff) to a site they don't know about.  Not that I think you'll do anything with it, I just wouldn't want my info passed to a third party without my knowing it."

The owner of the original site has an issue. I posted his concern above. Is that true if I used the merge tool? Emails and personal info gets carried over? Whats the difference between using the merge tool vs him simply handing me the databases and me installing them all fresh on my own host?

I guess I don't know enough about all of this. Is there a way to merge just the forum contents of one mybb board to another mybb board? Or is that all that the merge tool does anyway?
