following the importing guidelines thread for this process http://xenforo.com/community/threads/importing-guidelines.25325/ I'm transitioning my VB4 forum to XF and I am also switching hostin. I have VB4 on GoDaddy so I exported the DB from the php panel and saved it locally. Not that big of a forum, only about 42 meg for reference. I have XF installed on my xfhost account and went through all 5 steps of the installation thread http://xenforo.com/help/installation/ and that all went good. So I have the XF database created and a copy of the bare-bones install saved in case I have to wipe it out and try again. My issue is trying to import an already existing database from godaddy into xfhost while also switching hosting at the same time. I created a second database in phpmyadmin on xfhost but it has a different name from the one I am importing, and when I try to import it I get a 1044 error: So I'm trying to transfer the existing VB4 database from the old host to the new one, then I'll import that via the XF admin CP but I can't get the database to import on to the new server the name of the database I created (to import the old one into) is 'xxxxx_vb' not 'xxxxforum'. is this the problem? Is there something that I have to do in order to perform this correctly? I know just enough to be dangerous here so forgive me if I ask stupid sounding questions. Lots of PC & OS experience, next to no DB experience.
