  • Ikonboard_SQL - Import Questions

    Howdy

    Background: Importing from Ikonboard 3.1.2a. I currently have over 8000 users, total of 288836 posts (272350 replies to 16486 Topics) and over a Gig of attachments.

    1) Passwords: Got the import to work. However, passwords did not come through. Is there a switch I need to implement in one of the php files in the ImPex folder? Only file I found denoting passwords was 004.php:


    // Non Mandatory
    $try->set_value('nonmandatory', 'membergroupids', '');
    $try->set_value('nonmandatory', 'displaygroupid', '0');
    $try->_password_md5_already = true;
    $try->set_value('nonmandatory', 'password', $user_details['MEMBER_PASSWORD']);
    $try->set_value('nonmandatory', 'passworddate', time());

    2) Attachments: During the iport process, it asked for an upload folder directory : "Path to avatar upload folder"

    I am not clear what folder path it is looking for and for which side? IB or vB?
    Also, should something in the Admin Control panel be switched on or off before I proceed?

    Thanx, and am looking for ward to contributing as well as using the new board.

            I'm having this problem myself. None of the passwords carried over in the update. In fact the only way to access my AdminCP is to use the account "administrator" that I created when I set up the forums. Trying to log in with my PumpkinKing account tells me "Thanks for logging in..." and then directs me back to logging in. I had to change my PumpkinKing account's password in the Admin CP in order to be able to log into the regular forums. Please help.

              Did you make Pumpkining an admin?

                I have now but when I log in to the AdminCP it doesn't show the same options as my Administrator account.

                  You need to set those options from your other account:

                  Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Administrator Permissions
                  Steve Machol, former vBulletin Customer Support Manager (and NOT retired!)
                  Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

                    Heh. I unfortunately misunderstood a section on the config and had to go in and make a superadministrator. Then I could edit the Administrator Permissions. Any word on a fix for the password situation or will everyone need to reset their passwords upon return?

                    Thanks for the help with the other problems I was experiencing by the way.

                      No sorry. I have no idea how to fix the password issues. Hopefully Jerry will chime in soon.

                        Friendly Bump

                        I have my upgrade on hold until I can get help resolving the password issue. I have over 8,000 members and I very much would hate to have them all request new passwords.

                          Here now, back from holiday !

                          Are the passwords in the target database completely blank ? i.e. they arn't being imported at all or there is something there and its not working, i.e. they are being imported incorrectly ?
                          I wrote ImpEx.

                            Not exactly sure what I am looking for (still very new to MySQL) but it doesn't appear that the table is empty this is what I see in my SQL admin section:

                            password char(32) No Change Drop Primary Index Unique Fulltext

                              The importer looks in the source database for:

                              ib_member_profiles.MEMBER_PASSWORD

                              Which is a varchar(32), which I belive to be an md5, then imports that as it does any other md5 source password.

                              I'll have to review it to see if it is manipulated in any other way by ikonboard.
