  • Database error in vBulletin:ImpEx Target 3.0.3

    Hi im using impex to import my phpBB 2.0.8 board to my vb 3.0.3 board and I am getting this...

    Database error in vBulletin:ImpEx Target 3.0.3:

    Link-ID == false, connect failed
    mysql error:

    mysql error number: 0

    Only thing I can think of which I changed is my admincp

    Things I have tried...
    1. Changed all admincp on the impex index.php file to cpa
    2. Tried using the database username and password
    3. Tried using the admin username and password
    4. Tried fasle and true for sourceexists

    This is what my config file has...

    targetdatabasetype = mysql
    targetserver = localhost
    targetuser = username
    targetpassword = password
    targetdatabase = my_testforum
    targettableprefix = vbt_

    sourceexists = true

    sourcedatabasetype = mysql
    sourceserver = localhost
    sourceuser = username
    sourcepassword = password
    sourcedatabase = my_forum
    sourcetableprefix = phpbb_

    Cheers for any help...

    The taget database details should be the same as the details for the vBulletin config.php file.
    I wrote ImpEx.
