URGENT!!! FORUM GONE???

Colin:
I'm not sure. What you could do though is simply copy and paste that to notepad and save it as an SQL file type.

Colin:
Have you tried downloading it on a different browser?

I didn't try it in a different browser but I just copied everything. Took me a good chunk of time, but I did it, haha.

I'm also using ftp to save all my files onto my desktop. I'm paranoid now and I don't care how long it takes to transfer.

So on the new web host, will I have to install the forum, or do I just transfer my files over and it'll be done?

Colin:
On your new host you will transfer all of your files over, create a database through their control panel, import the SQL dump from SMF, change settings.php to reflect the new database and path changes.

Thinking about it now, you should actually not use the SMF SQL dump that is known to be corrupt. Do you know how to access PHPMyAdmin?

Ruddy Kitty:
Yes, I do.

I also got a few error lines while copying the SQL code:


--- Code: ---MySQL server has gone away
File: /home/FORUM/public_html/forum2/Sources/Subs.php
Line: 2479


Warning: mysql_real_escape_string() expects parameter 2 to be resource, boolean given in /home/FORUM/public_html/forum2/Sources/Subs-Db-mysql.php on line 143
--- End code ---

I replaced the directory with FORUM for security measures...
