Conversion from vanilla to vanilla forum

edited June 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help merge forum1 into forum2. Would somebody give me a clue how to do it.

    Eh? You mean add some pre existing data to a new forum? Toughie.

    You can merge like that, but you have to make sure that

    1. Unique keys are not duplicated.
    2. All data relationships are maintained.

    If you don't have a decent grasp of SQL and relational databases, I wouldn't attempt it.

    Oh gosh, mini. Vanilla will spread and 'ordinary' users will try to use it. Some sql coders will do things like these in a blink of a eye or somebody could build on-the-shelf tools. I would preffer the latter as it is hard to find sql\ php coders and it is hard to explain what you actually want to accomplish. It will be hand-made and thus takes more time. I was worried about same usernames in different forums but it could be manually checked. Not a problem as forums are small.
