I setup a database and installed phpBB and it works fine. There is just one problem, I can’t restore my old database. Is there anyway I can do this through phpMyAdmin or something besides the phpBB database restore function? Can the host do it directly in MySQL if all else fails?
Go to Phpbb web site and you will find tutorials on using mysql. There are intructions for using the administration panel, phpmyadmin, and how to manualy upload the database using ftp.
