I have an invision powerboard that I would like to change from my current host to a new one. I am fine with transfering the name servers and I am comfotable with cpanel and uploading or manipulating my files there. I have full cpanel backups including MySQL database and aliases and filter backups.
My question is how do I go about transfering my forums so that i keep all of my user information and post data in tact. Is it as simple as uploading the backups in my new host's cpanel?
I went to the new cpanel and restored my backups. All of the folders and files from the back up went into a folder called back up in the root folder. Am I supposed to move these files and folders to where they were on my last host (example move the forums folder into the public_htm folder) or is there another step involved that will do this?
I will check for a file I need to change the sql id and password ect
An update. It looks like I have properly uploaded my backup files to my new host because my page loads and has current information on it, however nothing on the board works yet. If i click on any of the threads or topics nothing happens and if i click on any of the buttons or links nothing happens. Is this because the name servers have not been changed yet or should these links be working because they are database links?
that is the temp address until my name servers are changed, but im not sure if the forum should be working or not
