Older SMF version, not installed, to ElkArte

Do you know if there's a way to import an older SMF database into a new ElkArte installation when the SMF itself is not installed? Is a database with the SMF structure enough?

Yes. The importer does not need SMF files. I don't know if it supports SMF 1.1, though. In fact, I know next to nothing about the importer.

Well, there is an 1.1 importer. I'm not sure how effective it is at this moment, but it *should* work. Always test first. O:-)

May i pick this up - does the database need to be installed or does it work from just a backup file?

No, a backup file is not enough. :)

Everything of interest is in the database.
