  • Import admin

    When I import de database from the phpBB to my vB it also imports my admin account from phpBB. But on my new vB there is allready an admin.

    What can I do to have one admin account. I want the old admin from phpBB (with my post counts) to be THE admin of vB.

    During the import you are given the option to 'associate' users. Use that option to associate the phpBB admin user with your vB admin one.

      Example:

      I see the next:

      1) Userid - -1 :: Anonymous
      2) Userid - 2 :: Collector

      My phpBB name = Collector
      My vB name = Collector

      What must I type behind Userid - 2 :: Collector .................

            Do I have to type the name : Collector or something else like a number?

              You need to put your vB userid number (most likely 1) in the Userid ID - 2:: Collector box.

                  Or just import them all then merge them after the import.
