« on: March 15, 2004, 07:25:06 AM »
Hi there! As i mentioned earlier i messed up my board while upgrading from yabbse 1.5.5 to smf. BUT: I made my backups!!! Now, can anybody tell me what to do, if i want to go back to yabb-se 1.5.5? I habe my whole server backed up and i told upgrade.php to backup the mysql-stuff. So i should be save, right?

The backup program basically sticks backup_ as a prefix on all your yabbse tables. Hence yabbse_messages becomes backup_yabbse_messages. So look in phpmyadmin and just rename the backups. There may be a script that does this for you but I'm not sure.
