XF 1.4 Importing an Old XF Forum, but only have the Database

#1
Hello all,

I'm merging some old data, and I have a database that was zipped up some time ago. The XF version to be imported is still 1.4.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I got the web files though, so no data or internal data directory.

Would it be worth trying this with a fresh install so I can just pull the posts through? as in override the existing MySQL tables? Or will it not work like that?


Any suggested routes?

It doesn't need to be an active installation to be imported.

Just the database and files (avatars, attachments) are required.
As you don't have the files, just create empty directories.
