OK, thanks.  Now I just need to work out how to change all of the URL's in forum posts to the new domain.

Thanks.

If you don't recommend the SMF backup feature, then what do you recommend?  This is what I do personally for forum backup:

Code: [Select]
mysqldump -u mysql -p smf > smf.dump
(plus backing up the attachments folder, which I plan to clean up a bit before migration)

The default limit for attachment space I believe is 25mb but can be upgraded.

Attachments are not backed up using the SMF feature to backup the database. I also don't recommend using that feature for large forums as sometimes the database dump is not complete.
You would need to send over the attachments folder as well.


To send the database email to create@createaforum.com or you can pm me a link to it. Please zip up the file.

Also signup for a forum on createaforum.com and send me your forum url.

And one more question:  Where do I send my database dump for starting a new forum on createaforum.com ?
