  • Problem importing, mysql error

    Trying to import forum/user data from a phpBB board (2.0.3) having read that it does work for some users, and I'm willing to edit out unwanted sections from the portal mod and a downloads mod I have installed on the phpBB board.

    I've uploaded the Impex folder as per the instructions, having first edited and renamed the config file, with the info for old board and new board in there.

    Gone into the Admin Control panel for VBulliten and clicked in Import/Export which came back with the following error:

    Database error in vBulletin:ImpEx Target 3.0.4:

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

    mysql error number: 0

    As there's not much specific info for the 'mysql error number' I'm not sure where to start looking on this, anyone have any ideas?

    This error means that either the info in your config.php file is wrong, or there is a problem with the MySQL server. If you are sure config.php is correct, then you'll need to contact your host.

      Thats a target connection failing, the details for the target database should be the same in ImpExConfig.php as they are in includes/config.php for the vBulletin settings.
      I wrote ImpEx.
