question about vv2 ( 14:34:28 ThuApr 1 2004 )

we are seriously looking into upgrading our board to vv2.

we have a few questions.

1. can we keep our same format i.e. background/fonts?

2. do we loose all our posts/threads?

3. do all our smilies transfer over too?

4. what all is involved in upgrading once you pay the $$?

v2 is not hosted here, so you can't transfer most of those. You won't loose your members, posts and threads (because you can convert them to bbv2), but I think you will lost everything else.

Hi Tina806 :smile:

I don't think background/fonts convert over with the threads & posts, but you can edit background, fonts, etc in the Edit Board template screen & the v2 equivalent of v1's " Easy Customization" :smile:

Nope :smile: Once you have your v2 board set up, you can simply click on the " Convert to v2" link in your old Admin Center, which will give you a .sql file. All you need to do then is to upload that .sql file to your v2 board, and you have all your forums, users & threads. :smile:

Yep :smile:

Once you've paid for a V2 License, you'll need to find a webhost to host your board :smile: For hosting, I recommend www.100megswebhosting.com . They use the same datacenter as our bbv2.com servers. :smile:

bbBoard v2 requires a server with:

Perl 5.x
CGI.pm and LWP::Simple for installation.
A supported Database Backend (mySQL, postgreSQL, Sprite etc).
