Transfering Database

apps

#1

A friend of mine hosted my PHPBB on Dreamhost for some time.

I now have my own account and transferred my board to my new account.

They database still resides with my friend and I would like to transfer it to my account.

I can d/l the DB from his acount, but am uncertain how to set it up in my account and get it working.

Any suggestions?

Just check the Dreamhost Wiki for articles on MySQL and will find detailed instructions on how to “move” (export/import) your databas(es).

After doing that, if you have a specific question or problem, post back here and I’m sure you can find domeone to help you with a given problem. Good Luck!
