    i downloaded the importer files. I uploaded it to my vb root directory which happens to be

    I changed it to

    so all the files are in the /importers dir.

    when i point my browser to it, it brings me to a login forum, but when i login it takes me the the usual next login page then refreshes to the same login page.

    Is there documentation for the importer?

    sorry, i'm new at this.

    there was a impex.readme.txt file within the zip you downloaded.

    I know that the folder should be impex and not importers.

          I can't find the file. There is an apidoc folder with \phpBB2_000.html but that is no help.

          Can you e-mail me the text file or tell me where to find it?

            when you downloaded the importer zip file there was a folder called upload and two files upload_agreement.html and impex.readme.txt


            Decompress impex into the vb3/ folder and check the admincp Import &
            Maintenance section for the "Import / Export" link.

            From there select the system you want to import from and follow the on screen instructions.

            Config :

            Rename the file to ImpExConfig.php.
            Edit it to allow impex to connect to your vB3 database and the source database.

            If the source is a file system (i.e. ubb_classic) set the source exists to
            false and leave the source database details as they are.

              thanks a bunch. I did the import, but for some reason the categories and posts aren't showing.

                You'll need to rebuild some of the caches.

                In the admin panel under Imports & Maintenance Click Update Counters
                and then run the following in this order
                Rebuild Thread Information
                Rebuild Forum Information
