Hi, i'm currently running a forum with MyBB at mydoges.org, but we plan on upgrading to XenForo soon. We don't want to burden our users to re-register, so luckily xenforo has an importer for MyBB. I'm a bit confused about this though.
How does the import process work? Won't I need to run both sites at the same time? I need to have the XenForo site on the same domain (obviously), and so this is just confusing me.
So would I just rename the directory that my current site is in to something else, then install XenForo into another directory? Maybe i'm just overthinking because i've never actually used the importer..
I really do not want to mess up the importation of the site, as I am not fully understanding how to do this with an existing site using the same domain, etc (obviously my fault, not yours). Where would I find someone willing to do the import/export for us for pay (and obviously a reliable person)?
