    okay this really sucks. I got a new webhost today who seems to be alot better and faster than my older one.

    I used the cpanel backup tool to createa backup of my forums sql database and uploaded it to the new host, but i keep getting weird import errors.

    So finally after hours of trying (im on dial up so it takes over an hour to upload my database) i noticed that my old host uses MySQL version 5.0.24 and my new host uses 4.0.27-standard.

    Is there anyway to get around this?

    When you are exporting the database, you should be able to choose the MySQL Compatibility option and set it to 'MySQL40' in order for the file to be readable by the previous version.
