Let me just start by saying im not real smart (lol) . ANyways i have had fudforum running for about a year and we just switched webhost. the old host went down and we lost everything but i had made a backup the day we lost it so i have all the files and the datadump i made. But when i installed fudforum on the new server it went fine until i tried to import the datadump. it told me to run consistency checker and when you do all that happens is a blank screen. So i tried to upload all the fudforum files and install the foum that way and i get a blank screen doing that also. Anyone have any suggestions. thanks

What version of the forum did you install and what version of the forum did the datadump come from?

How big is your dump? If it is < 2 megs e-mail it to me and I'll tell you what forum version you need to use.
