hi all ive managed to get xmapp to work my xf backup db but when i tried to do a full import to xmapp it said the path for the attachments wasnt found but it noticed the db password etc fine, the attachments are in the correct place as i use the same location for the live import, is xmapp capable of importing from a live external db??
Are your vB attachments stored in the database or file system? If they are in the file system then you need to specify a local path when running the importer in XF. If vB is on a remote server then the attachments will not be local so you need to copy those files to your local XF server so you can then specify a local path in the importer.
thanks jake the attachments are located on the server not in the db, ive tried to setup filezilla but i can not get it working do i need filezilla to access the file attachments on the server thank you
