Hi guys,

New to IPB - Ex vB, so obviously bery limited knowledge of an inferior product!!!

Just a quickie - i wanted to confirm that if i do an import from either Xenforo or vB that the source DB remains unchanged and unaffected? I want to have a play initially, and want to import a live DB, however want to take this direct from the source db (the corresponding board being closed that is!)

Many thanks

install uwamp or similar, make a backup of the site you want to convert and try it locally

To confirm, we only ever read from the source database, we don't write to it.
