Exporting a forum hosted on

edited March 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I would like to eventually export my forum ( to another server. It seems that the normal process of exporting and importing forums only works if I can unzip a file onto the server, which I cannot do with my forums. Is there any way for me to export it anyways or will I just have to bite the bullet and start the forum anew?

    Mind if I ask why this action requires dedicated support?

    As a (prospective) customer, what I read into this is unnecessary lock-in. Vanilla Forums is open source software. It's only natural that some users will eventually have the technical savvy and needs to fully control their own site. for instance completely acknowledges this trend.

    //edit I'm sorry I thought I was replying to your earlier discussion. The simple answer here is that the feature didn't/doesn't exist yet and they need to do it manually.
