And now y'all will find out why my User ID.
I've been doing what I thought was a fair amount of homework and the step-by-step here seemed easier to understand than that which I found over on phpBB Documentation or their Support, or something. I have that one hanging right here in front of my head. I also have Frans' hanging off to the left.
Problem is, even after looking at at least 10 different sites for this that and the other I am still having trouble getting a handle on all this. So I'm wondering if I just ask questions, will y'all try to be patient with this old man and help me get through this.
What I'm trying to do is move a forum that was set up a few months ago, but has never been opened to the public. it has a few threads done by my partner, but we are not talking about any large database. I need to move the forum to a new host. So I'm going at this step-by-step, obviously.
My very first problem is I cannot find what is listed as "old database" nor can I find the "database password". Okay, I'm reviewing my post and I am beginning to realize that it's not actually listed as "Old" database, right? Okay, that just goes to show you how stupid I am. So the database referred to there is simply what I am seeing and explained below, right?
I'm right now looking at the "Old site" and in MySQL Databases under "Current Databases" there are two databases -- one is 0.21 MB and the User Name is the same name as the Database. The next Database listed below that is 2.31 MB and that User Name is also the same as the database.
Now, in phpMyAdmin <version 2.11.6> I don't see anything listed as "Old Database" (I think I understand this -see above- but I'll leave this as I first typed it, just in case). By the way, the server version is <5.0.51a>. One potential problem that may be the killer here is in the left-hand column under "Create new database" there is, in bright red letters, "No Privileges". Other than that it would seem I have access to everything else.
So is that "No Privileges" a killer? And where can I find the information to fill in this part of Frans' instructions.
The url is ...................
URL I reckon is easy, except that "board" part confuses me.
"old_db" I don't get. (Maybe I do now, a bit.)
"old_db_user" seems to be two different users for two different database. By the way, I can create new users.
And the "database_password" I haven't a clue.
So, am I a hopeless novice way over my head, or do you think there is any hope for me.
Oh yes, now ...:::Frans:::... you understand what I meant in that introduction thread.
Any help, advice, etc. y'all are willing to provide will sure be greatly appreciated. Even if it's, "Forget it old man, you need a pro."
