    When trying to import the vb database through phpmyadmin I get this:
    after the upload went to 99%.
    Any idea why?

    Will be merging a vb db in my xenforo.

    If you're on a VPS, try raising memory/upload limits in PHP.ini?

    try creating a php.ini and putting it in your home directory. could work, but only on a few shared hosts i know.

    Other alternative is to ask your host, they can then increase the limits for you.

    What should I have in it?

    ini_set('memory_limit', -1); ?

    Would you be able to use something like bigdump?
    got me out of trouble a few times

    I downloaded syphex dumper, trying to figure out how to use it exactly.

    I am unfamiliar with that one, As for bigdump you simply edit the .php file to include your database details (similar as you would XF config)
    Then upload it to your server (put in a folder and set folder permissions to 777)
    Navigate your browser to /bigdump.php

    Upload it via. cPanel and ask the HawkHost support to put it in a database for you.

    Its all ready solved if you read above ;) I used Syphex Dumper to import the DB, took only a few minutes compared to phpmyadmin.
