    I have two vBulletin forums. One's vB license is expiring so I was planning on transporting all my members and posts to the other one. Both are same genre forum. Old one has around 1k posts and new one has around 500. Is there anyway I can transport all members and posts to other forum in SQL database. Both are vBulletin and I don't need anything else other than members and all posts and thread.

    Do a mysql dump of each table then import it into the new database. If using phpMyAdmin, or anything other than command line, you'll find the features you need browsing around the interface. Now, the tricky part. What does it use as a unique identifier? I don't know how vBulletin runs the database, but if it uses a single unique number (postID or something like that), you'll have to change the numbers on one or the other. You can do this with a quick PHP script, of course
