Using an existing mySQL database
Ok so I can only have 1 mySQL database on my host (windows based) which I am currently using for my pbpBB forum. I'm looking to make the switch to vanilla and so my problem lies with not wanting to remove the existing mySQL database until i've got the new one all ready to go. I read this in the documentation for vanilla... "You can either create a new and totally seperate database to install vanilla to, or install it into a currently running database shared by other programs, this is all up to you." So would it be possible to install vanilla to the same mySQL db I currently use for phpBB. Can they share the same db? The second part of the switch is importing all the data from my existing mySQL db over to the new forum. So would it be possible to do that if they share the same db, or is this just getting too messy? ;-) I know there's an extension to import the data so I definitely need to be able to use that. Anyone got any suggestions on how best to go about this? Any help would be much appreciated.
