  • [Forum] Question re installation

    A friend of mine accidentally deleted his old forum folder (phpBB3), and has asked me to replace the old forum with vBulletin 4 (patch level 2) on his site. Can anybody advise as to how I go about doing this? I've uploaded the new forum software with config.php filled out to connect to the existing database.

    You need to dowbload the ImpEx-Script from your customer area and follow the isntructions. Then you can import the phpBB3 data into your new vBulletin installation

      I've just downloaded the zip file, clicked on it and it gives me an error saying it's empty. The file is 0KB.

        Download it being a ZIP file and then just entpack it and follow the instructions you find in impex.readme.txt

          I'm unable to open it. I've re-downloaded it and it won't open - it says it's empty and the file is 0kb. I also tried it as a tarball and again it's a zero kb file which won't open

            Hu? i was just trying it and it looks good to me. So you klicked 'Download Impex' in your customer area, agreed with the terms of the vBulletin License Agreement and the download started right away?

              Yes, download appears to be OK but the file is 0kb and won't open.

              Can somebody help me with this please? Every time I download it it's just an empty 0kb file.

                I had this the other day but trying again worked for me.

                Also, have you tried a different browser? What one are you using?

                  Using Chrome the Impex file downloaded OK.

                  My next question - can I not use the original database for the new vBulletin installation? Do I have to create a new one in order to do this? I'm being asked for a source and destination databases in the set up script.

                    Source - where you're pulling the data from

                    Destination - where you're importing to (whether a new installation or an existing site)
