I tried installing resource manager on an existing forum. of course it wanted to clear all my data. so I did a db back up.

now I can get my data back in. what am I doing wrong?

Installing the Resource Manager on an existing forum would not remove data.

Which data are you referring to specifically?

If you have restored from a backup then everything should be back to how it was before the attempted installation.

Can you please clearly state exactly what steps you have taken from the start.

Your posts don't make much sense at the moment.

I uploaded the files as the resource manager told me to do. I filed out the information. the next step it told me I had to remove the tables... then it install the forum over again. the data is gone, but I have restored it in a separate database from my back up sql file. but when I change the config file to point to the back up database I get an error. So all the users/threads/etc are gone.

It sounds like you tried to reinstall the forum on top of an existing installation, which is why you were prompted.

You will need to restore from a backup and revert all of the files to their previous state, including your config.php and install-lock files.
