    Hi guys I did a database backup with the phpbb feature will that work with vbulletin?

    What about phpMyAdmin can I use that instead to backup all users,posts,topics to start new vbulletin forum?

    If the database formats are indentical and the format of the data within the databases is identical, then yes. In reality, no.

    Yes, in the sense that through phpMyAdmin you can access all the relevant data and therefore copy the content from the database for one forum to the database for another. Whilst possible, it's generally far beyond feasible. A better option would be to search the web for a tool that will automate the conversion for you.

    Would you be doing this only because your lost the password for your phpbb forum, or were you looking to change anyway?
