  • IPB 1.3 --> vB 3.0.3 - Attachments and Post date

    Hi,

    have two problems with Impex for Invision Power Board 1.3. The german VBulletin 3.0.3 is a new installation.

    When i would import the Attachments, Impex told me "Skipping, no source file". What to do?

    The second error is, that every post have the creation date 01.01.1970 after import.

    Hope for help.

    Attachyments should be supported. Are you sure you are running the latest version of Impex and that there are attachments in the IPB database?

    As for the post dates, you need to update the user, thread and forum counters after importing.

      Second problem solved. Thx.

      First problem:
      Maybe, i'm running Impex 1.27. And yes, i'm sure. Impex told me about 128 Attachments.

        I'm with stupid.
        Attachment upload path must be the total path from my webserver.

        A little help text would be fine next time.

        Thx

          Another problem.
          Because the import is too old i want to do a new one. But when i choose clean database i get this error message:


          Database error in vBulletin:ImpEx Target 3.0.3:
          Invalid SQL: UPDATE vB_ranks SET importrankid= 0 WHERE importrankid <> 0
          mysql error: Unknown column 'importrankid' in 'where clause'
          mysql error number: 1054

          What to do? How can i delete all Threads and post? The way over the admincp is not handy.

            The easiest way it so rerun the install script.

              Sorry, but the install script delete also the other tables like Style Settings and so on, right?

              I only want to delete the forums, threads and post, but not the settings.

              Hope it's clear what i'm need.

                Click on the import / export link again, that will by pass the mysql missing table error. It has been fixed in the latest download.

                The HOWTO explains the post and thread dates.
                I wrote ImpEx.
