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:
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.
