Importing from a BP backup file

  • Hi,

    I hope someone can help me with my current problem. I had BuddyPress installed, along with several other BP plugins, on the following site:

    Our members weren’t happy with how BP worked, so we installed a separate forum, and decided to revert our site back to WP without BP. However, some members want now to access their personal messages, and so I’m trying to accommodate by reinstalling BP, and trying to import the backup file I’d made right before uninstalling BP.

    I have some questions about whether this will work:
    1. Will this work to reinstate my site to exactly the same as it was before the backup?
    2. Should I reinstall the additional plugins, or will the backup have all those?
    3. All the users are still listed in the site’s current user list, so will the personal messages between users be restored?
    4. Is there anything else I need to do before importing the file?
