I have backed up my DB from my old host and it exists as a .gz file on my computer.
I have the config.php file from the vB4.23/BB5.41 installation.
I'm ready to do the import and that's where I'm foggy (I've been foggy a lot recently).
1. What do I do with my db .gz backup file? Do I ftp it to the new host and if so, what do I do with it then?
2. There is an importer for vB4 and an importer for vB4/PhotoPost, do I do both of these in this order?
3. The records are pre-pended with "BB". Once I import them (and PhotoPost), should I remove the BB?
4. As an alternative, the current database is live at my old host. Instead of moving it, can I have the importer browse to it instead of using localhost and if so, how would I do that?
Thanks for your help. I've searched a lot for these answers without finding definitive answers for a newbie.
