Hi, I have a YAF forum ( on my current dedicated web server and I am moving to a shared server environment. I wish to install a new copy of YAF on the new shared server and then migrate my existing forum into this. Can you explain what the procedure to do this would be?
Many thanks for a great product.
That's not the correct way. I recommend the way of backup old files restore them on the new server and then upgrade to the latest version.

So in detail...
- do a full backup of the database
- restore the old database on the new server
- copy all files from the old server to the new server

Then you can start the upgrade process, more info on how to upgrade can be found in the documentation on github.
