1. Make backup. When I moved our netforums from http://www.top5lists.org forums to http://www.chicagotech.net I used my hosting company control panel to backup sql database, whole home directory. I also backed the database using phpbb backup.

2. In the http://www.chicagotech.net, create the same forum using the same name as http://www.top5lists.org.

3. When I used control panel to restore sql database or whole home directory, I received the following message:
"phpBB : Critical Error

Could not connect to the database"

4. If I restored sql database using phpbb restore, I could have all posts, but I can't logon as administrator.

5. What I did make it work is open the sql database and change all top5lists.org to chicagotech.net. Then use phpbb restore. Now, I have all data and login work.
