1) upload the file with database to your forum folder
2) open bigdump.php and locate the following lines:
Quote
// Database configuration

$db_server   = 'localhost';
$db_name     = '';
$db_username = '';
$db_password = '';

3) fill in those fields with your database details
4) scroll down to find:
Quote
$db_connection_charset = 'utf8';
and make sure you have the correct encoding there
5) upload the bigdump to the same folder as database file
6) type in in your browser:
Quote
your_forum_address/bigdump.php
7) you will see the bigdump screen, select the database file and click it
8) wait for bigdump to finish

i didnt get this...
for example:- i should upload bigdump.php in a file named dump and should upload it to my file system??u said with database,so i should also upload database backuped file in that folder??


make sure you have the correct encoding there
5) upload the bigdump to the same folder as database file

Why would you rename anything? The name of the file is bigdump.php, don't change it just upload.
Same for database - upload database to the same folder as the script.

I'm sorry I cannot be more clear than that.
