Unfortunately you can't import over an existing database without losing members and posts. Because same User ID and Post ID numbers exist for both databases. If you are just restoring an old database to a new one and you are not worried about replacing users/posts, then all you need to do is make a backup in your admin panel under forum maintenance. Then goto your new forum and import the database with phpMyAdmin.
