I did a serch and not coming up with what I really need.

I have site one with 1.1.5
and test site with 2.0

with my host server I can not make 2 data bases with the same name, so I am not able to import my db from site 1 to 2 and I know there would be an issue if I did as the db's are diff, MySql 4.0 and 5.0 and smf I read was diff from 1.1.5 to 2.0

can someone tell me how to transfer my members and the data over from site 1 to site 2 ?

Transferring your members from a forum running 1.1.5 to another with 2.0 may not be easy due to the number of database changes.

If your Host restricted MySql databases to just one, I don't think they restricted the # of tables for a database. ;)
Do both SMF Installations (1.1.x and 2.0) have different table prefixes. You can Install another SMF 2.0 forum on the existing db with a different prefix and import data from an SMF 2.0 forum's db with your data.

the holt allows up to 25 data bases but I can not set up another with same name to transfer the old one over to new one....

I was just wondering if I can get my members over to the 2.0 from the 1.1.5 and any of the other data I might want with out the whole database being transfered?

That isn't something I can help with, sorry. You can stick around - maybe someone with great skills in this can help you, alternatively - you can post at the Help Wanted (Not for Support) Board.
