    But i dont want the whole backup only the users, boards, topics.
    I dont want a backup of addons in my database or other things.

    Uninstall the add-ons and remove any associated files.

    You can't selectively transfer content and data.

    Hope I havent picked this up wrong but you CAN be selective in the database backup & restore features of MySQLDumper..

    Do as Brogan says " Uninstall the add-ons and remove any associated files. "

    Then dont select the options in MySQLDumper ; ie only select the tables you DO want backed up...

    A Guide is here:

    He wants to move his installation to a new server so he will have to move the entire database.
