  • Convert php nuke to vbulletin???

    Hello, I wrote a post like this a long time ago... just wondering if anything has changed?

    Question: Can you convert php nuke (database inc.. users/posts) to vbulletin?

    I've used php nuke for 2 yrs and now its time to move on and get something better!!!

    Thanks in advance...

    No, unfortunately we do not have an official PHPNuke import script at this time. You can try checking at vbulletin.org to see if there's an unofficial one.

      The phpBB importer will deal with the users at the moment.

        Thanks for the replys... I was able to sign up to vbulletin.org, but I have to own a vbulletin board in order to post a thread, can anyone help me out?

          I've seen a few posts on there about nuke->vB2 , I've not seen any details about what it imported and what it didn't.

          The phpBB->vB3 one will do the users if they are synced, because they are basically the same but I've not written a nuke importer yet.

                Another member has found a path using the phpBB importer to get to vB3, but there will be seprate nuke importer.

                  I would worry about the threads later personally,'
                  The importance is really in the users

                  99% sure someone at vb.org can import data to vbulletin once its already

                  Once vbulletin is already installed , it would make it much easier to make a importer for posts, would it not?
                  I dont know personally, but i would assume so

                  Whats the easiest to import from and the hardest, what is most successful?

                    The phpBB2 importer does import the users and there is a way of modifying the board from a current nuke install so that it works.

                    The worst is ubb.classic, it is by far the most difficult. File based and random perl delimiters.

                    The best so far is probably phpBB because I've had most constructive feedback on that so I've been pointed at the bugs and sorted a lot of them. wBB was very easy because of the similarities in the database.

                    I'm looking forward to myBB or some thing like that where the database schemas are very similar.

                      Doesn't that suggest that they copied?

                        I'm just saying that when I look at the schemas last when I was reviewing all the products and thinking about how to design the importers, there were some that had similar schemas to vB, some were closer than others. When a piece of software does a similar job to another there are going to be some similarities.

                          They still havent gotten away from perl? A big mistake with compatibility and overall performance, is due to using perl in my opinion.

                            I know perl has some real strengths in some areas, horses for courses, just like most things. Though I really don't like it for anything more than reporting or basic shell scripting.
