Solved: 1 Week, 6 Days, 3 Hours ago How to reinstall database?
#1
Solved: 1 Week, 6 Days, 3 Hours ago
Greetings, friends

Sooo, in the process of royally screwing up an upgrade, I seem to have lost my forums, threads, users, etc

Fortunately, I backed it up, and it exists in php my admin. 

But how do I get those files back into my forum? Right now it's like I have a fresh install and there is zip, zero, nada, left over of the old forum.

Many thinks for your help!

database backup needs to be imported into server through phpMyAdmin.
in general,
empty database needs to be created & database backup can be imported into it

database needs to be connected through config.php file [config.php guidance]

depending on your earlier forum version, you may have to upgrade forum.

if any critical files are missing then they might be shown while trying
to access the forum / forum admin panel. you can upload such missed files.
