  • Problem with Importer... please advise

    Hi All

    Well, I've done something very wrong here. Not too worried at the moment though as this is only a test vB3 environment for me and I can quite easily re-install everything from scratch again - however, I'd prefer to find out what I have done wrong so I don't do it again...

    I upgraded successfully to vB3.0.1 from vB3.0.0 withouth any glitches at all - it went 100% as it should.

    Then I decided to install the Importer script. So I followed the instructions as per :


    Code:
    <!--StartFragment-->Installation
    ============
     
    Decompress impex into the vb3/ folder and check the admincp Import &
    Maintenance section for the "Import / Export" link.
    ... and now I cannot access my test forum homepage at all... see here

    http://www.theadservers.com/forums/

    I have obviously have done something majorly wrong here. Should I have uploaded the Import script over the forum directory which is what I did...? The instructions above said over the vB3/ directory which I interpreted as this one.

    Can anyone advise please... thanks
    John

    You mean, you overwrote the vb directory with the importer directory? It is supposed to go inside the vb directory, e.g. http://yourhost.com/forums/impex. If you instead overwrote your vb directory, then there is no wonder why you can't access it.

      I hate to piggyback your thread... but I don't want to start a new for an IMPEX problem.

      I successfully converted everything from ipb to vb and all forums are showing (although in a crazy order, no big deal) and all posts are showing. The problem is... my user count is 1... my administrative account... and the memberlist also only shows me... help?

        Didn't you do the Import Users step?

                    I updated all my counters, and the exact same thing. Replicated it a few times. I'm using phpbb2 to convert.

                    Still shows as 1 user. All the users ARE in the members list though.

                        So it happens with PHPBB and IPB then. Can't be a coincidence. Bug maybe? The users DO show in the memberslist.
