    I want to get the importing steps down by repeating them a few times.

    On my beta board I imported successfully from vB 3.8.

    Today I want to do it again so I deleted attachments and avatars per:

    I want to drop all tables per instructions, but I can't figure out how do so via command line. Can I simply drop the xen database and recreate it?

    After the database is cleared out - won't I be logged out? How do I proceed with re-importing at that point?

    Thanks. I will make a clean master backup this round. (But I did not originally)
    But I am concerned about dropping tables and not being able to login to do another import? Do you know what I mean?

    I am starting to think since I did not do the clean backup originally that I just wipe out my xen directory, reinstall, add add-ons, do a clean master backup... then proceed to import.

    Once you restore the backup database there will be no issue as your account will already exist.

    That makes sense. I am starting over and doing this right. Thanks
