Archived ⇒ Installing in same db


I have another forum now that is php and my host will not allow me to delete that db as it is locked. The forum now goes to www.xxx/phpbb2/index.php

Is it possible to delete the files, without deleting the database, FTPing DF to the server and installing in the same DB without deleting the old php files that are in there now?

well, you could install DF in a subdirectory, so no problem with the php-files ... and with the DB, simply use a prefix für your DF-tables,that is not used by the other forum ...

I totaly agree with Gallowglass.

But you can get rid of the phpbb2 database by dropping its tables, you don't need to get rid of the database.

You could also decide to not delete but convert your phpbb2 board (users and/or posts) to a Dragonfly cpgbb board. There's a converter in Downloads and a topic in this site's forums to read all about it.
