We are running a big FudForum with version 2.3.4 (more than 25 forums, 11.000 topics, 156.000 messages) and are planning to move to a new server.

I would like to upgrade to the latest version of FudForum in parallel but would like to keep the existing template. I would really appreciate some guidelines how to do this the best way.

Thanks for your help,
Cosimino

Were you changes specifically focused inside the header/footer/stylesheet or were they all over the board?

We made most of the changes only in the mentioned areas.

Then your job is relatively simple, make a diff between the modified files and the originals. After you perform the upgrade, apply the diff and rebuild the theme.

I have an old Fudforum on server 1 and an empty Fudforum (latest release) on server 2.

How should I transfer the database content? Can I create a dump on server 1 and restore it on server 2? Or is the database structure different?

Thanks for your help,
Cosimino

The upgrade script will take care of the database schema changes. What you should do is upgrade the existing forum. Then make a datadump and import it into a newly installed forum on 2nd server.
