    Copying tables from one database to another

    I plan to convert my phpbb2 forum to WBB2, but the forums do not share the same database. So I wanted to know if there is an sql command to copy the existing phpbb2 tables to another database on the same server. I don't want to move them, because it's a live forum...I just want to copy them. I can't simply download a backup and upload it to the other database either, because it's almost 40 megabytes and that would take forever on 56k.

    Any help would be appreciated,
    Thanks.

    You may find you need a converter to convert to convert the database structure of your old forum to the structure of your new one.

    phpBB has plently of these, but I guess since your moving to a new forum they won't be much good - try looking on your forums website, if there are major differences then you may find that its impossible to change all the data manually, or if you could it would take forever.
