  • [Forum] phpBB Migration Problem

    Hi all, i've imported my phpBB 3 Forums into my recently purchased vBulletin 4 and everything seems to have imported but my members are having issues logging in, it is reporting login failed, the only way i think they will get to sign in is to click the forgot password link that resets it but this is going to be an inconvenience? is there a fix for this?

    Many Thanks

    UPDATE: My forum users received their reset password and once they log in they now get a message saying they are BANNED !! No reason give and ban lifted NEVER?

    I've went into my VIEW BANNED USERS but it's empty?

    What's happening here please?

    Please note that since phpBB3 passwords are encrypted, they cannot be imported. Your users will need to reset their passwords after the import. You can read more about this here:

    Check your Usergroup permissions and make sure that "This Usergroup is not a 'Banned' Group" is set to 'Yes' for the groups that you do NOT want banned.
