I have a current PHPBB forum on a Debian sarge box that I would like to move to a Dreamhost sub-domain without breaking it into little unrecoverable pieces.
I have full root access to the source box.
I have perused the instructions here:
I know mysql database name and the user for the forum.
When I went to edit config.php on the source box, the target file wagged it’s finger at me and referred me to another file in the /etc tree on my source box, which of course, I can’t place on the target server, since I’m sharing it with a billion other users.
So, can someone help me make this happen? Should I create a forum using one-click and just try to copy my source files (or backup file) over it? If so, how would I change the config information ont he target box?
