I am converting over a large'ish vB 3.8 site, and have installed xenForo into a test/beta site and done a few runs of the import process. I have also installed a few add-ons, and set some configurations settings for these.
Following the Import Guidelines, I assume that if I drop all tables and re-install a backup DB from immediately after a fresh xF install, then I will also lose/affect the add-ons? Is there a method to just drop all imported vB 3.8 data and do a new import whilst keeping the rest of the xF (add-ons) in-tact?
Or should my process be the reverse (and more timely) process of installing a fresh xF install, then installing all my add-ons, and then taking a DB backup ready for last import test and final import? Any 'gotchas' following this method?
I assume it's probably the latter, but don't want to go down that road and later slap my forehead when I find-out there was an easier/quicker method to drop all import data only
