XF 1.3 Forgot to back up my database. What now?


So it seems in my rush to configure a new forum to replace a dated phpBB forum I forgot to back up the initial database so I can start fresh with my settings intact and do a final import of data.

So what now? Is it possible to make another fresh install in a separate folder and just move the clean database there to my folder with all the style settings?

The style system in the Admin CP lets you export / import styles. If that is all you need to preserve then you can reinstall and save the exported style.
