  • IPB 1.3 --> VB 3.0.1 Import Troubles

    Greetings,

    Hopefully someone can help me see what I might be doing wrong here. I wanted to attempt a test import of my current IPB databae in order to see how difficult this is going to be to create an acceptable conversion. I really haven't made it very far yet.

    I got the ImpEx module installed and configured properly I believe.

    When I run step 1 of the import I do not get any errors and it seems to be able to locate and have access to the database to be imported.

    In step 2 something a little strange happens. I never actually see any users to be given the opportunity to associate any IPB users with VB users. I thought that was weird but I went to the next step anyway.

    In step 3 I successfully imported my user groups.

    Step 4 is where I am positive that I have a problem to solve. I am not able to find any users for import. Is it because I am not specifying a "Path to avatar upload folder"? If so what should that be?

    I'm going to keep digging around but if anyone has any advice for what I may look into, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    kc

    If anyone else has troubles with the IPB convertor I would highly recommend the following:

    Install VB 2.3.5
    Convert your IPB into it.
    Upgrade to 3.0.1

    Works like a charm.

    Don't forget to apply these fixes to the converter:

      I didnt have any problems running the IPB importer for other people with impex, the chances are you didnt have the config file set up corectly.,

        Have you raised a support ticket for this ?
        I wrote ImpEx.
