Moving a message board

I'm in the process of moving my site from one host to another and so far I have moved across all the content files.

This Saturday night I will need to move my m/b over and just need some guidelines on how to achieve that.

I'm running phpBB 2.0.22.

Can I just back it up and then transfer that to the new server or will I need to upload the main phpBB files first then add the back-up to it afterwards?

Would it be better to upload a brand new vanilla version, 2.0.23, and then up load all the mods along with the back up later?

you may find you have a pretty steep learning curve ahead, and you may want to seek help and advice on the phpBB forum click here


You'll need to use a tool called phpMyAdmin on both servers.

You'll also have to make changes in config.php
