    $impexconfig['passcode'] = 'test';

    By default it is test, you should put some semi-secure password in there.


    There we go. Thanks a lot!

    As far as I am aware the passcode should be blank. It could be #CUSTOMERNUMBER#. I suggest editing the source code and removing any hash so a blank works.

    One thing about open sourcing ImpEx, is that is not supported anymore either. The only version it was supported on recently was 4.2.2.

    Sorry, but that's not helping. I still can't get pass this damned "pass code" screen. I've always been using vBulletin 3.8.7 and have merged and imported databases successfully for the past 6 years.

    Nothing happens when I hit "Continue".

    Am I in the right pathway? I uploaded the Impex files to my root.

    Trying to use Impex but...what's the pass code?

    So I decided to revisit Impex after several years to do some database merging; looks like it's gone open source now.

    Anyhow, I installed it, and hit a roadblock: the pass code screen. Before, it used to be my vBulletin customer number- however, that doesn't work.

    What 'pass code' is it referring to?
