I'm new here and have a few questions.
I'm using minnibb 1.7 and need to reinstall this on a newer system.
I did copy the files made a back-up of sql file.
Created a database with the same name.
When i start up in my browser i can see the first page with the forums.
But when i click on one of them the link will not open.
I just return to the index.php
Anyone a solution for this problem ?

Thanks already

jabartja: what you need to achieve at first, is having the forums database fully compatible with the latest miniBB version. For this, you need to use the tool named convdb.php, also, completely follow the Upgrading History and apply all updates mentioned for the database (in each version paragraph) manually.

After that, just install the new version, and plug it in with the updated database in setup_options.php. Then modify new version's templates, CSS etc. That's the only simple way.

If you have problems, just describe them more accurately. "But when i click on one of them the link will not open." - what does it exactly mean? 404 status is displayed? What is an example of the link? Do you use .htaccess and mod-rewritten links? Your questions could not be answered here, if they are not detailed.
