Move Forum to here

Hey...I have a forum here http://fautz0.proboards54.com/index.cgi and I would like to move it into here http://experimentdisaster.com/destinypokemon/forum/YaBB.pl (since I'm really happy with the way it works...that way I can keep complete control over it.)

However...I have no idea how to do it...I want to move all the posts...and all the members I have into the new forum...and I need to reroute the address. The reroute I know how to do on my hosting...however...I don't know how to do the move. Please help!  Shocked

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like that's possible.  I searched these boards for the word "proboard" and came up with the following link that explains why:
http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1157208848/3#3

I'm not sure if anything's changed since then, but, unfortunately, it probably hasn't.
  

You should always perform a complete back-up before making any changes or modifications to your forums.

Well...thanks for the help...I'm going to have to repost everything from scratch Sad oh well...at least the members won't have to do anything...so I'll be able to keep them as fans of my art...XD

Hopefully, my plan will work...I'm just going to make several memebers...and with each other post, I'm going to use that member account and repost it as if it were them. Then...once I'm done, I'll give the password to the members they belong to...so then they can change any information there Smiley I hope it's a good plan...XD time-consuming...but it's organized...
