I had a test installation of a XenForo forum and imported all the data across from my current vBulletin database. However, now I am preparing to put my installation live and I have encountered an error.
I copied my database from my test installation over to the virtual machine I am hosting the my forum on and configured everything ready for installation. However, when I pointed the config.php file to my old database XenForo returned this error message:
You cannot proceed unless all XenForo database tables are removed.
So obviously I cannot install XenForo with an existing database. My question is, if I install XenForo with a blank database, can I then change the config.php file to point to the old database? Will this work?
Any input appreciated.
