Active member
I want to import existing xenforo 1 forum to existing Xenforo 2nd forum. What am i supposed to enter in the data directory and internal data directory?

It is a relative path from the existing installation to the installation being imported.

If you aren't sure what that is, navigate to /admin.php?tools/phpinfo in the installation being imported and search for DOCUMENT_ROOT to get the absolute path and use that.
From my DOCUMENT_ROOT, i got /home/domainname/domains/domainname.com/private_html

On the last two section of the import i entered


I got this error:
Oops! We ran into some problems.
ErrorException: [E_WARNING] file_exists(): open_basedir restriction in effect.
