How do you do it and keep all your members posts themes, etc.
simply download all your files and reupload them to your new host. i find the best way to do this is with a ftp client and not cpanel. oh and change the dns info incase you didnt already know but im sure you do.

No, that will just keep the files.
You have to Backup your MySQL Database too.
ah forgot about datbase... sorry
You forgot the most important thing lol
As NeoFusion said, you need to backup your MySql too. Don't forget it, cause it's there where you have everything (posts, threads, etc)
How do i backup the mysql database?
Go to your Admin CP on your forum and on the left hand side select database backup, You want all tables you want the structure and data GZip on and select the download method to download it to your computer, in a safe place Smile
And how do i restore it on my new hosting?
