  • Importing 3 PHPBB2 boards

    I'm just wondering if is there any solution to import from three different phpbb2 installation which sharing the same userdb.
    Impex works fine for the first phpbb2 board, as soon as I want to import catogeries, topics, threads, posts etc. from the secont phpbb forum, it overwrites all my pre-imported data.

    I also tried to import from the first phpbb2, creat a new forum, and moved all the imported catogeries etc. into this forum. But if I import from the secont phpbb2 board, it still overwrites the pre-imported data.

    Thanks in advace

    Each impex is for one import.
    When one import has completed, remove the vbfields table it created, and goto import again after updating the impexconfig.php file. It will now consider your database as the target and not associate set users, threasds, etc. .. and the new import would be as if it was the first one.
