Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

I have a site running ot the minute with a Vbulletin forum.I used WAMP5 to install all the services.

I wish now to change to Xampp but don't know how to change the databse over without losing any data.

The database is a large file around 12mb so i was wondering the best way of doing this

Any help most welcome

Many Thanks

Ps i have full access to the files so even a simple cut and paste job will do>

Hey buddy,
The best method is probably through PHPMyAdmin,
(it's the only way i know how)
open PHPMyAdmin (if you have it) or use the MySQL console (if you don't have PMA) to EXPORT your database...
Install your new XAMPP server, open PHPMyAdmin (http://localhost/phpmyadmin) and open the internal MySQL console/window....
Choose import from file... Hit go!

Hope this works for you...
God Bless,
