  • phpbb 2.0.11 to vb 3.0.4 importing woes

    Hello I purchased vbulletin yesterday, and I am trying to import a phpbb 2.0.11 database into a vbulletin 3.0.4 database, I got the appropriate impex download, edited and renamed the file as instruction said, but when i hit import/export in the admin cp it simply displays select board type, but does not give any board options, I have provided a screen shot http://jpopnow.com/bbserror.jpg

          I get this

          PHP Version 4.3.6

          and a lot of other things, I got the import to work now after many tries, but now only the avatars of those people who were importad show up, if I or anyone tries to upload new avatars it shows no errors but does not do anything. I changed the avatars to store in files system, but still no joy.

                Have you removed all but the system folders you actually need ?

                    When uploading ImpEx, you only need to up load the dirs and file in the impex/systems folder that you actually need. i.e. if you are importing from phpBB just upload the impex/systems/phpBB folder with the core files.

                    Uploading them all won't do any harm, though ImpEx will use more memory when starting for the first time as it checks them all and loads all the modules.
