    My first forum ran on phpbb and i originally chose to not import everything into my 2nd forum (xenforo). It's been a while but im thinking of importing all of our old stuff back in. How would that work?

    All im really looking to do is get back old posts/threads/users, i don't want to have things overwritten or conflicting on the newer forum.

    You can run the importer without retaining IDs.

    Any users with the same name or email address you will be prompted to merge or change the details.

    All other content would just be imported as normal and allocated new IDs.
