  • Okay started the import

    And this so far aint working for me.
    first off importing from ipb 1.3 to vb 3.06

    So what would be the first step i would want to do
    i am starting from a brand new database and forum for vb. so Should i make my admin the same as the ipb forum ?

    now i already tried it twice to import and got a error both times.

    like the first step went through importing groups went through when i went to import the users i just got a basic page that said do i want to refresh or quit i think. and thats where it stopped

      As per the Online Manual and Import How-To thread, you need to update the counters after importing.

      Admin CP -> Import & Maintenance -> Update Counters

        yeah i did that and that wasnt the problem it had to do with user groups. i had to set all the permissions within the user groups that were imported

          That is covered in the HOWTO, either update the usergroup or move the users to the registered group.
