  • phpbb2 to VB3 problems

    Well my basic problem is it dont happen!

    i do the check database bit and half the tables are "non standard" and i have not changed any tables there the standard phpbb 2.0.8 tables.

    after this i click inport users and it gives an error of:

    Database error in vBulletin:ImpEx Source 3.0.1:

    Invalid SQL:

    SELECT user_id,username

    FROM users

    ORDER BY user_id

    LIMIT 0,25

    mysql error: Table 'voodoop_jokeshop.users' doesn't exist

    mysql error number: 1146
    Then it will not load the inport page again just stays blank.

    It looks like you didn't add the tabel prefix for your phpBB database in the Impex config.php file.

      table prefix for phpBB is usually "phpbb_"

      good luck

        Got the same problem (
        I did however filled in the phpbb_ prefix, double checked the phpbb config file to be sure it's the correct one.

        I ran the query to reset the import and tried again, but I keep getting the same problem.
