Many gaming communities already run their forums and membership through software such as phpBB, Invision Power Board or WordPress, using a MySQL database to store data. We've been asked a countless number of times whether or not it was possible to import this data to their website, the answer was always no! As of today that is no longer the case.
In your Admin Panel, visit Menu » MySQL Importer.
Fill in your MySQL settings, such as database name, port, IP/hostname, along with your member/forum table/column names. Grant us access to your MySQL server by creating a new "iclanimporter" user and hit the import button.
You need to fill in the table and column names because each database is different depending on the software you're already using. We need to know where the data is in your database.
After you hit the import button:
You can do a dry-run first to check the import will work successfully, a dry-run means we'll read your data, check it, but will not import it to your website. You should dry-run first, before you go ahead and import.
And that's it! You've now successfully imported your old forum and member data into your website. Your topics will be placed in a new category and board in your forum.
