Installing online Vanilla onto XAMPP
edited February 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi guys, so my friend asked me to take over his forum. It is hosted on media temple right now, i want to move his forum into xampp, so i can make changes locally for testing and such. i installed xampp on my computer and created a vanilla database. what are the next steps?

If I can give you one piece of advice, follow your local changes with a versionning system.
Good luck, and keep us informed!
I personaly use Subversion locally and on servers.
I think all you have to check are the parenthesis or brackets. Don't break your file between one opening and one closing.
c:\xampp\mysql\bin\mysql.exe -u root -p dbname
Maybe an export table by table, the biggest one would be IMHO the Comments one, try this one first.
Anyway, if it's just for test purpose, maybe you don't need every bit of information. Maybe you just need some hundreds of comments.
But I just realise that Vanilla makes a count for different things: number of posts in a discussion, by users, so it could end inconsistant...
I think there's no need to run the installer if you have all the files and the data of a running Vanilla.
About the DB, maybe you just need to create the table, not the data contained in it. I don't know ShortStat but I guess it will create the missing table for you automaticly.
