Is there a way to export an existing phorum to a file that could be imported to another forum - like bbpress?

Yes, that may be done with mysql (dump), or phpmyadmin, or other programs.
You will need to manually create the import scripts for the other message board.

We won't be able to help you, Phorum is supported here.

Hi magicmassey,

what's the reason to switch to bbpress?

Regards
Oliver


Using Phorum since 7/2000: forum.langzeittest.de (actual version 5.2.23)
Modules "Made in Germany" for version 5.2: Author_as_Sender, CarCost, Close_Topic, Conceal_Message_Timestamp,
Format_Email, Index_Structure, Mailing_List, Pervasive_Forum, Spritmonitor, Terms_of_Service and German_Language_Files_Package.

Not sure if there is a reason to move to bbPress - client has multiple repositories of info - very scattered. One of them is Phorum. Just trying to understand my options.

Is there an easy way to move what they have to new hosting?

Yes, you can move your Phorum installation to a new hosting.

I think this is the best time to upgrade to the newest Phorum version.

If you do a mysqldump and want to install it on another server you will probably have to update phorum_settings


update phorum_settings set data = '/newdomain/newpath1/newpath2' where name = 'http_path' or name = 'login_redir_urls';

...else the new code will try to import CSS from the old url
