    I want to start with a fresh, clean database with just threads, posts, etc. I therefore want to install Xenforo again but import data from my old Xenforo database. Is there a way to do that as I view the importer and can only import from other forum software.

    I don't want to have to use my current bloated database which may have some errors in it.

    There is no direct XenForo to XenForo importer.

    The only way to do it is via phpBB/IPB/vB.

    An import is not a good cleaning tool. I advise against this. It is better to directly address any specific problems you are having with the current database.

    Yeah I gave up on the import and removed a few add-ons. Database has halved and the site seems to be running normally.

    Thanks anyway ;)
