  • Problem with IPB 1.3 Final To Vbulletin 3.0.3 Importer

    Ok i recently installed impex, and i couldnt really understand the directions but this is what i did

    i upload the impex folder to my forums folder, then i edited the ImpExConfig.php and for source (i made a new database and backed up my invision board 1.3 onto it) i entered my database info for the database with invision board on it. The first time i went to import/export it worked fine, but none of the importing was working, it said something like table not found. Then i tried moving my invision board to different databases and reediting the Impexconfig.php, now everytime i try to view the Import/Export page all i get is a blank page. I doubled checked the database, even went back to the original one i had before i had this problem, but still i am getting a blank page. Is there a step i missed? did i need to upload the invision board foler to my host?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    Run this query:

    DELETE FROM datastore WHERE title='ImpExSession';

    Then try the import again.

      now i get these problem

      ok thank you, but now i get the following problems:

      ibf_games_cats NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_games_champs NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_games_list NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_games_scores NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_games_settings NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_store_category NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_store_inventory NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_store_logs NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_store_modlogs NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_store_quizinfo NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_store_quizs NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_store_quizwinners NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_store_shopstock NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_tournament_players NOT found or a non standard table.
      ibf_tournaments NOT found or a non standard table.

      i get these as not found when running the first import, but im sure its cuz vbulletin does not support these files correct?

      And also only the members show on my forum, none of the threads, posts, etc. are showing. How can i fix this?

      And is it possible to also convert the IPB Skins to Vbulletin?

      Thanks in Advance

        The first error messages are nothing to worry about, just means impex found somthing it wasnt expecting, that data wont be touched, nor will it be imported.

        Have you rebuild threadinfo then forum info in the update counters section of the admincp?
